"Know of the planet Uro, do you? Devour their weakest children, they do."
"…they're arachnids, whose instincts are unstoppable."
―Yoda and Qui-Gon Jinn — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

Uro was a planet that was home to an arachnid species who consumed their weakest children.[1] Around 40 BBY,[2] when Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn questioned why the Galactic Republic allowed corporations like Czerka to practice slavery, Grand Master Yoda used Uro and its native species as an example of unethical actions that the Republic did not prevent.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Uro was mentioned in Master & Apprentice, a novel written by Claudia Gray and published in 2019.[1]

Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Master & Apprentice
  2. Master & Apprentice gives the age of Obi-Wan Kenobi as seventeen years old, while ToppsDigitalLogo.pngStar Wars: Card Trader (Card: Obi-Wan Kenobi - Padawan - Base Series 1) establishes that Kenobi was born fifty-seven years before the Battle of Yavin. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Yavin battle to 0 BBY, thereby placing Kenobi's birth in 57 BBY and the events of Master & Apprentice around 40 BBY.
