Description[edit | edit source]
The Uscru Entertainment District was the lower levels area of the planet Coruscant's Uscru District. It housed clubs and bars that hosted gambling, drinking and various other entertainment. The area had large crowds, constant traffic, and lit advertisement boards that announced the various services available. It made for a perfect area for fugitives to escape into and for criminals or those who did want attention to sell illicit goods and wares. It was the site of the popular Outlander Club where people could place bets on sporting events that were going on around the galaxy.
History[edit | edit source]
Just before the start of the Clone Wars, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padawan Anakin Skywalker pursued bounty hunter Zam Wesell via airspeeder through the Coruscant skylanes before Skywalker forced Wesell to crash into the streets of the Uscru Entertainment District. He chased her to the entrance of the Outlander Club where he met up with Kenobi and the two Jedi found and revealed the shapeshifting nature of the bounty hunter. However, before Wesell could reveal the identity of her benefactor, she was killed via a poison dart by Jango Fett, the bounty hunter who had hired her to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know and Star Wars: Complete Locations all state that the Uscru Entertainment District was an area located in the Coruscant's lower levels. In Ultimate Star Wars and its online Databank entry, the Galaxies Opera House is listed as being in the upper levels of the Uscru District with Ulitmate Star Wars making a distinction in listing locations as being in either the upper levels of the Uscru District or in the lower levels of the "Entertainment District." As such, the Entertainment District is considered to be part of the larger "Uscru District" yet comprised of the district's lower levels.
