Ollopoms were short, gentle herbivores native to the swamps of the planet Naboo. A species of rodent, they were often mistaken for Pom Petals, a plant that was part of their diet. An ollopom named Ollie was owned by the Ithorian Dok-Ondar on the Outer Rim world of Batuu, given to him as a gift by the pirate Hondo Ohnaka.

Biology and appearanceEdit

Ollopoms were a species of short and gentle herbivorous rodent found in the Gungan swamps of the planet Naboo.[3] They were sometimes mistaken for plants,[2] such as the Pom Petal, which they ate.[3] This was due to their large, flat heads that resembled the leaves of some aquatic plants, as well as having a series of long, bloom-like hair tendrils.[4] Their underside featured gnawing teeth, three pairs of clawed limbs that operated more as paddles, green fur,[3] and a fluked tail. Their eyes were light brown, while their skin was pink and yellow with purple spots.[4]


Sometime during the war between the First Order and the Resistance,[4] the Ithorian collector Dok-Ondar kept a pet ollopom named Ollie in a small tank in his store, Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities, in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. Ollie was given to Dok-Ondar as a gift from the pirate Hondo Ohnaka, who found Ollie in unmarked cargo.[2] Dok-Ondar had Ollie displayed in a cylindrical glass container filled with water and Pom Petal plants for his patrons to see.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Ollopoms were first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the D23 article "Creatures, Droids, and Aliens: Meet the Fantastical Figures of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge," published on May 29, 2019. The article revealed the ollopom's then-upcoming appearance as a prop in Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities, one of the retail locations in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, a theme park land that opened at Disneyland Park on May 31, 2019.[1] Ollopoms were originally created for the Legends continuity and first appeared in the 1999 video game Star Wars Episode I: The Gungan Frontier.[5]
