"That doesn't sound good. How angry will Princess Leia be?»
«That depends on what he's smashing. If it's the singing lamp the Jumerians gave her as a wedding present, she might even thank him."
Mallatobuck and Chewbacca upon hearing their son, translated=1|Lumpawaroo, ransacking the Solos' apartment[3]

The Jumerians were a sentient species[1] from the Jumeria system[2] of the Core Worlds[4] and members of the New Republic.[1] By the year 8 ABY,[5] they had presented Princess Leia Organa Solo with a singing lamp as a wedding gift. Although she found the item repugnant, she kept it in the Coruscanti apartment she shared with her husband, Han Solo.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Jumerians were first mentioned in the eBook novel A Forest Apart, written by Troy Denning and published in 2003.[3]

(screenshot) Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. This article treats the Jumeria system as the location of one such homeworld with regard to the Jumerian.
