    Firstly, what is your favourite location from Rogue One. Vote up and discuss in the comments. All the planets and locations were beautifully made and filmed. In my opinion I thought Jedha was my favourite followed by Scarif and then Mustafar. In this thread I will share my opinions of each location and some facts and greater detail of the location of the planets and locations :). I hope this thread is of some use and hopefully a good discussion.

    Lah'Mu - Is located in the Outer Rim's Raioballo sector. It has very few inhabitants ( about 500 humans) the main we know as the Erso family. The soil and water sources here are very rich and contain many minerals and elements ( The main elements were zinc, chlorine, cobalt, nitrogen and boron. However the water is undrinkable because of the high amount of element content. The Erso family fled her from Coruscant hoping to escape the empire and to live peaceful life farming. Director Orson Krennic soon tracked them down years after. This part of the outer rim system is far away from the major hyperspace routes. I thought this planet was very different to any other we have seen before therefore, this is why i quite like this planet. The soil and ground is also quite interesting as it is black and has a volcanic presence.

    Jedha - Is a small desert moon which orbits the NaJedha planet in the Jedha system in the Mid Rim it is also frosted by permanent frost. At one point this location was very important to the Jedi order. The Empire occupies Jedha during Rogue One. It is a holy site because of the Jedi temple and the kyber crystal pockets. This was some time before the battle of Yavin when the Jedi used the kyber crystals for there lightsabers. This is also the location of the rebel extremist Saw Gerrera's base. This moon was the first attack run of the Death Star ordered by Grand Moff Tarkin to Director Orson Krennic to test his super laser weapon on the city of Jedha. This moon was sort of standard to me as it is just a common sight of a settlement and sandy surroundings. However, i liked the story behind this moon as it has an old history tied with the Jedi and the Jedi Order way before it was mined for its kyber for the Death Star super weapon.

    Wobani – Located in the Wobani system in the Bryx sector of the galaxy’s Mid Rim. The planet is partially hidden by a swirling dust cloud. Wobani is a known Imperial detention center and labour camp. Jyn Erso had a 20 year sentence under the name Liana Hallik when the rebel time helped her escape however, it came at a cost of giving up Saw Gerrera’s position. Mon Mothma guaranteed her freedom after she helped the rebellion. This is the first time we have seen any footage on Wobani. I have read a couple of books now that contain Wobani Leia Princess of Alderaan and Rebel rising. I just wish we got to see a little bit more action inside these camps in the film as the books made it seem quite a bad place.

    Yavin 4 - One of a number of moons orbiting the gas giant Yavin in the galaxy’s Outer Rim, Yavin 4 is a steamy world covered in jungle and forest. It was the location of the principal rebel base early in the Galactic Civil War, and the site from which the Rebellion launched the attack that destroyed the first Death Star -- a confrontation known thereafter as the Battle of Yavin. Yavin 4 is now pretty standard me I have seen it several times now nothing new but beautifully filmed and photographed.

    Eadu - A rugged mountainous planet in the Outer Rim’s Bheriz sector, Eadu is known – to the extent it’s known at all – for its rain and native nerf herders. Few suspect the planet is home to a top-secret laboratory where Imperial scientists working for the Tarkin Initiative seek to unlock the secrets of kyber crystals and perfect a terrifying weapon. The refinery was targeted by agents of the Alliance to Restore the Republic following the destruction of Jedha City and resulted in the ruination of the facility and the death of Erso. Overall I thought this planet was alright but we didn’t exactly see much as the storm was covering all the surroundings.

    Ring of Kafrene - The Ring of Kafrene, also referred to simply as Kafrene, was a mining colony and deep-space trading post in the Kafrene asteroid belt of the Thand sector. The Alliance to Restore the Republic sent intelligence agent Cassian Andor here prior to the outbreak of the Galactic Civil War, leading Andor to learn of the existence of the Death Star. From what we saw this looked like quite an interesting planet. Once again the filming and photography was amazing.

    Mustafar Vader's Castle - Mustafar was a small volcanic planet located in the Mustafar system, situated between two gas giants in the Outer Rim Territories that was aligned with the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars and later taken over by the Galactic Empire after the Techno Union was nationalized at the conclusion of the conflict. During the Imperial Era, Mustafar became a fortified Imperial world as it housed the personal castle of Darth Vader. Darth Vader's castle, also known as Vader's personal abode. Once the site of a Sith temple, during the reign of the Galactic Empire it served as the personal residence of Darth Vader, a Sith Lord who wore life support armour after sustaining grievous injuries on Mustafar. This is one of my favourite clips in Rogue One. I Have always wanted to see more of Mustafar ever since the Revenge of the Sith even though it was a short clip I was purely amazing. We got to see Darth Vader bathing in a bacta tank.

    @StarWarsGaming Excellent thread! As a huge R1 fan, I loved the new worlds we got to see. However, you are missing one - Scarif. That would be my choice.

    Can you change your poll to include Scarif?

    Scarif
    The planet Scarif would be a beautiful tropical paradise if not for the presence of a major Imperial military installation. Scarif is the principal construction facility for the vast Imperial war machine. The world is enveloped in impenetrable deflector shields and is heavily defended.

    I find it so interesting that they took the "tropical paradise" concept and applied it to the deadliest weapon then known in the galaxy... Granted, it was also based off of the Pacific theater of WWII...

    For some reason, the Ring of Kafrene reminds me of Nar Shaddaa and Cassian Andor reminds me of Kyle Katarn.

    The Ring of Kafrene is so interesting. It's like a combination of Blade Runner and Deep Space Nine. It would be a great setting for a series. I'm hoping Cassian Andor at least stops in here during his new series.
