Hyperion was a planet located somewhere in the galaxy. It was the homeworld of a species of sapient mice to which the Jedi Master Mickey Mouse belonged.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Hyperion was first mentioned in 2008, in the Acme character key of the non-canonical character Jedi Mickey.[1] In real-life, Hyperion is a small moon of the planet Saturn.[2]

It is also a reference to 2719 Hyperion, the original Burbank address for the Walt Disney Studios in the 1920s and 1930s, when Mickey Mouse and much of his supporting cast were created. [3] Disney has used the Hyperion name in various places since in homage to the old studio location, such as their Hyperion Books publishing division and Hyperion rendering software.
