"This place is ancient. Like a world between worlds."
Ahsoka Tano[src]

The World Between Worlds, also known as Vergence Scatter[2] and the Netherworld of Unbeing[2] was a mystical plane within the Force serving as a collection of doors and pathways that existed between time and space, linking all moments in time together.[3] It was written about in the Jedi sacred texts, which described the Force as a ribbon across all reality, and it could be traversed through the World Between Worlds. The Chain Worlds Theorem, visualized in the texts and written by an unattributed figure, described the World Between Worlds.[2]

The World Between Worlds was accessible from the ancient painting of the Mortis gods that decorated the exterior of the planet Lothal's Jedi Temple.[3] Loth-wolves were intrinsically tied to the realm and could traverse through it in a manner similar to hyperspace travel. Darth Sidious, ruler of the Galactic Empire, sought to enter the world between worlds, as gaining access would give him unimaginable power, and as Minister Veris Hydan believed, control of the universe.[4]

The Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger thwarted Sidious' designs when he discovered the key, and was able to unlock and enter the world between worlds first. After saving Ahsoka Tano from the past by pulling her into the World Between Worlds, Bridger and Tano encountered Darth Sidious, who tried to enter the realm using the Force users. Bridger and Tano, however, were able to return to their own times, with Bridger closing the portal and causing the Lothal temple to collapse, taking Hydan with it.[5]

Behind the scenes

"I always got the sense that if somebody else had gone into that World Between Worlds, they would have experienced something completely different. They would have heard different voices echoing, the portals would have been different, so it's all about what you bring into it and what your experiences are and what your connections are."
Henry Gilroy[src]

The world between worlds was created for the Star Wars Rebels television series. It was identified in the season four episode "A World Between Worlds".[4] While developing the world between worlds, Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni had conversations with Star Wars creator George Lucas about it.[6] During the Star Wars Rebels Remembered panel at Celebration Chicago in April 2019, Filoni confirmed that the concept for the world between worlds had been inspired by the Wood between the Worlds in C.S.Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia.[7]
