"Nevarro is a very fine planet. And now that the scum and villainy have been washed away, it's very respectable again."
―Greef Karga[src]

Nevarro[5] was a terrestrial planet[4] with rocky and volcanic terrain. A settlement existed on the planet, containing a Mandalorian covert and at least one cantina. After acquiring several bounties for the Bounty Hunters' Guild, the bounty hunter known as the Mandalorian visited Nevarro to meet with Greef Karga, exchanging the bounties for money. After taking a new job, the Mandalorian met with his client elsewhere on the planet.[2] After acquiring the client's target, a child, the Mandalorian returned to Nevarro, and handed the child over to his client, though later had a change of heart, returning to save the child. Karga and a number of bounty hunters confronted the Mandalorian for breaking the code, but the Mandalorian tribe based in the enclave defended him, allowing the Mandalorian to escape from Nevarro.[3] Shortly after, the Imperial remnant arrived at the area, looking for The Child. Karga made a deal with the Mandalorian to come back with The Child to try to get rid of the remnant.[1]


Imperial EraEdit

"So, we're going to Nevarro?"
"Have you ever been?"
"No. We lost a lot of our forces there. The city's dug in pretty deep. No cover when you drop in. It stayed in Empire control 'till the end of the war."
―Carasynthia Dune and Din Djarin — Quote-audio Listen (file info)[src]

During the Imperial Era, Nevarro was firmly controlled by the Galactic Empire. Following the Battle of Endor, when the Empire began fracturing and the Alliance to Restore the Republic reorganized into the New Republic, Nevarro remained an Imperial stronghold until the very end of the Galactic Civil War and repelled several New Republic assaults.[1]

New Republic EraEdit

"Ever been to Nevarro? I hear things didn't go so well there, but it looks like you got off easy."
Fennec Shand, to the Mandalorian[src]

By circa 9 ABY,[6] Nevarro was an independent world and a backwater best known as the home of the Bounty Hunters' Guild. The Guild's leader, Greef Karga, was an influential figure in a settlement on the planet. The same settlement was also the location of a Mandalorian covert and a small contingent of Imperials belonging to Gideon's Imperial remnant.[2]

Following the betrayal of the Imperials' superior by the Mandalorian, Moff Gideon sent more troops to Nevarro and had the settlement occupied, much to the chagrin of Greef Karga and his bounty hunters.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Nevarro made its debut in the Chapter 1 of the 2019 television series The Mandalorian,[2] which premiered on Disney+ on November 12, 2019.[7] It was not named until it received a mention in the fifth episode,[5] which was released on December 6, 2019.[7]

The landscape of Nevarro, like many other outdoor scenes in The Mandalorian, was shot using new "Stagecraft" technology, in which a set was surrounded by an LED screen. A real-time background was projected onto the screen, to appear as if it were a physical environment.[8] The architecture of Nevarro was initially inspired by Roman designs in the city of Pompeii, which was similarly consumed by lava.[9]
