"Only petty criminals get sent to Wobani. No one from that sludge hole could possibly be that important."
Jory of the Red Flight[src]

Wobani was a temperate[6] planet[7] partially hidden by a swirling dust cloud,[5] located in the Wobani system,[3] in the Bryx sector[2] of the galaxy's Mid Rim.[1]


"Congratulations. You are being rescued. Please do not resist."
K-2SO, to Jyn Erso[src]

When Princess Leia Organa was sixteen, she went on a humanitarian mission to Wobani, with the intention of providing the people there with supplies. Upon her arrival, she realized how truly terrible the natives were being treated, and decided to take as many refugees back to Alderaan as she could. She was able to trick the Imperial officer in charge of Wobani, rescuing 100 refugees in the process. These refugees were then taken to Alderaan, where they could choose to stay or live on other planets, all at the expense of the royal family.[6]

Shortly before stealing the plans for the Death Star, Jyn Erso was held in an Imperial labor camp on Wobani until being broken out[5] by Extraction Team Bravo of the Rebel Alliance.[3]
