List of Star Wars planets and moons

Remains of the film set for the Lars Homestead on the Planet Tatooine at Chott el-Jerid, Tunisia (pictured in 2010)

The fictional universe of the Star Wars franchise features multiple planets and moons. While only the feature films and selected other works are considered canon to the franchise since the 2012 acquisition of Lucasfilm by The Walt Disney Company, some canon planets were first named or explored in works from the non-canon Star Wars expanded universe, now rebranded Star Wars Legends.

In the theatrical Star Wars films, many settings for scenes set on these planets and moons were filmed at real-world locations on Earth. For example, the resort city of Canto Bight located on the planet Cantonica, seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, was filmed in Dubrovnik, Croatia.[1]
