Star Wars: Planet at the End of The Clone Wars Is Actually a Moon


The show closes on a very somber note, as both Ahsoka and Anakin end the Clone Wars irrevocably changed. Ahsoka has renounced the Jedi way for good and Anakin has been manipulated into becoming a Sith monster with no one left to turn to. But while the series finale gives fans of The Clone Wars closure in many ways, there’s still on question left to be answered: what”planet” are the characters on in the final scene?

Well, first of all, this isn’t a planet at all, according to Wookieepedia, which confirms that it’s actually a moon. It’s easy to confuse the planet for a moon, though, since it has an atmosphere and foliage and climate changes — we first see the moon during what looks like its fall season and then later in winter. We usually don’t associate moons with complex environments full of fauna — in this case, we see that at least convorees live on the moon’s surface — and foliage. But this isn’t the first time we’ve visited a habitable moon in the Star Wars galaxy.

Habitable moons have appeared in Star Wars since the very first movie. The Rebel base is located on Yavin 4, a moon that orbits the much larger gas giant Yavin. Unlike the Rebel moon, the planet is uninhabitable. Later, in Return of the Jedi, the heroes journey to Endor, which is a forest moon orbiting the planet…Endor (although the Ewoks refer to the planet as “Tana”). In The Rise of Skywalker, Rey, Poe, and Finn visit Kef Bir, another Endor moon.
