"Visit the Water Planet Praya"
―An advertisement for the Deluxe Undersea Package on Tourscan[src]

Praya was an ocean planet[2] located in the Praya system, within the Clacis sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories.[1] By the year 4.3 ABY,[3] it was home to the luxurious Sea Castle Resort Hotel. The Star Tours travel agency facilitated transit to Praya through their Deluxe Undersea Package.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Praya first appeared in an advertisement on Tourscan at the Tokyo Disneyland Star Tours attraction, which opened on July 12, 1989.[2] The Essential Atlas Online Companion placed it in grid square K-4.[1]

The location and footage were reused from the Sea Castle ending segment from Horizons, a now-defunct Epcot ride, which focused on the concept of ocean colonization. The models for Horizons' three ending segments were designed, constructed, and filmed by Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope special effects veteran David Jones.[4] The model for the ocean segment was made in two parts: an underwater city and an underwater canyon, which were visually joined by a pass though the total darkness of the ocean depths.[5]
