    There are so many beautiful planets/locations in Star Wars. I wanted to start a thread where we can all share our favourites. I know it's hard but try to pick just one planet/location. Tell us why and what you admire most about it.

    I'll start things off with my favourite place in the whole Galaxy. I know it might not be the most popular choice but we all have our reasons:

    Theed, Naboo

    c9cb80e04cf6881c5b25a143625537c0.jpg

    Theed is the (human) capital city of the Naboo. I was totally in awe of everything Nabooian the moment I saw Theed in The Phantom Menace. I love the aesthetic feel of the city. The architecture reminds me of Vienna and other old European cities. I always imagined what it would be like to live in Theed.

    star-wars.jpg

    This particular scene was filmed in Plaza de España, Seville (Spain).

    This scene in Villa del Balbianello (Italy).

    Funeral_Temple.png

    The Theed Funeral Temple.

    Theed.png

    Notably the home world of Padmé and Palpatine. Theed had many universities and I often imagined the amount of knowledge passed around secretly in these halls. Perhaps Jedi/Sith knowledge and artefacts. Maybe just old Gungan relics!

    Naboo ships.jpg

    Lastly some Naboo starships. I particularly love the Royal Starship. Phasma had her armor polished in chromium, which had been salvaged from a Naboo Ship.

    -
    It was really hard to choose just one because there are really so many beautifully designed worlds and places in the galaxy but if I had to pick one, yes, it's Theed, Naboo.

    I look forward to seeing all of your favourite places and reasons why you love them.

    Have fun!

    I'm an avid hiker, nature lover, and I often want to be in serene environments. On that note, my favorite planet since 2003 has been Dantooine. Obviously we hear of Dantooine in ANH but we don't get to explore it until KOTOR, and the planet is beautiful. I've wanted to live there ever since.

    I'd say Tatooine has to be my favorite. It's first planet ever seen in the star wars saga and as the home planet of Luke and Anakin it's probably the most important[ planet. Plus, even though it is a desert planet it does have some beautiful moments, like it's twin sunset.[​IMG]

    Starkiller Base is an awesome choice!

    I actually wanted to put Starkiller base along with some other planets/moons in the Poll options but there is a limit on poll choices :(

    I can imagine you casually skiing around in your stormtrooper armour. Slaloming around trees.

    @CT - 5555 Yes Tatooine is beautiful!

    When I go camping, I like to go where there are no people for miles No phone no light no motor car, not a single luxury. Because of this, I went with which planet I'd want to go camping on the most and in terms of sheer beauty and isolation, I chose Ahch-to. You get the best of everything. Good hiking trails, campable beaches and a sheltered inland. Plenty of fishing and just good ol' cloud watching. My kind of place.

    Out of the above, I find Naboo interesting as it's actually got a somewhat realistic portrayal of biomes.

    I really like Sullust and Ord Mantell for some reason, though.

    I'm thinkin' like what Qui Gons Gin an Modragon were sayin'.

    I went with Naboo coz I couldn't choose Dantooine...
    similar, maybe ?

    I'd want it simple... like how I live now.
    Yeah, I live in a lil' bity town, in an apartment BUT, it's real simple... like early 1930's simple. Sure I got tech (2 pieces is all). It is all I need.
    Like Galen and Lyra when the got to
    Lah-mu... like that.

    If it weren't so damn wet... wonder what nerd hearing on Eado's like ?

    Out of these options - I'd choose Ahch-To (good choice @Qui Gons Gin) : rocky islands, awe-inspiring cliffs, crystal clear waters and thousands of kilometres of unspoiled coastline.

    Cawatrooper mentioning Ord Mantell made me think of this awesome scene from Darth Maul-Son of Dathomir where Count Dooku is walking through the battle between the CSI and Maul's Shadow Collective, as Ord Mantell falls around him.

    Count Dooku Walking Through Ord Mantell.png

    And Ord Mantell before the attack. Looks like a nice city to live in. Man the art is this comic sucks.

    Another very beautiful planet is Lah’mu which was filmed in Hafursey, Iceland. We see Lah’mu during the opening scene of Rogue One:

    XLcccGv.jpg

    I love the planetary ring system in the skyline.

    Lah’mu from space.

    I would love to know bit more about this guy. Does anyone know the name of this droid?

    Love the black/dark green moss like terrain and the general aesthetic of this planet.​

    I LOVE most of Star Wars planets, but if I have to choose:

    Cloud City, Bespin. The place where dreams come true. So beautiful. So perfect.

    [​IMG]

    Coruscant. So beautiful, so full of life. So "Blade Runner". I want to see more of this planet.

    [​IMG]

    Hoth. So white, so blue, so cool.

    [​IMG]

    Jakku. So sunny, so much sand (sorry Anakin), also Daisy Ridley living there is always a plus.

    [​IMG]


    Lahmu. So cloudy, so dark. And I don't even like clouds, but look at those clouds!

    [​IMG]

    Alderaan. :(

    [​IMG]

    Hosnian Prime. :(:(

    [​IMG]

    Scarif. I must go there on vacation.

    In my eyes Naboo is most beautiful planet , combining its nature, and architecture, though it could be I am biased because there happened romance between Anakin and Padme (who wouldn't fall in love there).:rolleyes:

    I'd have to go with Coruscant. Growing up in a small, boring community, I craved the crazy nightlife of a big city and always found myself drawn to them in movies, games and books.
