    This may seem stupid. But with the amount of amazing planets in the Star Wars Universe is incredible.

    And when I say Underrated, I mean planets that are fascinating, beautiful, or filled with life as the planet isn’t talked about as much or isn’t shown in Canon SW as much.

    Try not to choose a planet like Tatooine, Hoth, Yavin 4, or Dagoba. Those are significant enough not to be considered underrated.

    On a last note, keep the planets from the following films and series of Star Wars:

    Phantom Menace
    Attack of the Clones
    Revenge of the Sith
    A New Hope
    The Empire Strikes Back
    Return of the Jedi
    The Force Awakens
    The Last Jedi
    Rise of Skywalker
    Star Wars Clone Wars (NOT 2003 lol) (IM TALKING TO YOU TOO EMBO! Lol)
    Star Wars Rebels
    Star Wars Resistance
    Mandolorian
    Solo
    Rouge One

    To answer my own planet, I’d go with the planet Illum. Some will argue that this is not underrated seeing as it is where young Jedi receive their Kyber Crystals for their Lightsabers. However, from my memory, it only appears in one or two episodes of the Clone Wars, so yeah, it’s underrated. And Im not counting StarKiller Base as Illum even though it kinda is. We all not its not hehe.


    Also, I want to clear this up real quick. Underrated can have a few definitions from many of yall. So the main idea from this thread is that the underrated term means a planet that doesn’t appear in the Films and Shows that I mentioned often or it isn’t talked about enough I guess.

    I'd choose Scarif. Because it wasn't explored much, we barely know nothing about it. Besides the landscape was amazing.

    1) Jedha, the most culturally loaded planet in Star Wars.

    2) Although not a planet, Cloud City comes in as a second.

    3) Coruscant has a lot going on, but the stories never have time to dwell on them, unfortunately.

    4) Naboo, with its twin civilizations, is also pretty good.

    5) Any of the Death Stars or city-sized ship could do with some micro-culture exploration.

    6) Exogol; I've got soooo many questions about this world and Palpatine's cult & operations there. (For the record, "having questions about" does not equate "having objections to"; TRoS is pretty good!)

    7) Corellia; Solo:ASWS added so much flavor and culture to SW with its, what... 10 minutes on Corellia? But I need to know more!

    8) Alderaan. It was a real shame that the PT didn't invest us with a deep love for Alderaan, to add context and emotion for when it is destroyed in ANH...

    9) Hosnian Prime, for the same reasons as Alderaan, AND becuase TFA could've done with a little more politcal set-up.

    10) And finally, Nar Shaddaa & Nal Hutta, 'cuase I just love the concept of anarchic Hutt worlds!


    So... yeah... I guess I'm an urbanophile!

    Agreed. Good list. But a question, by Cloud City, you mean Bespin right? Are they the same thing? I don’t really know hahaha

    Bespin is the name of the gas giant on which you can find the place "Cloud City". It‘s one of the biggest cities on Bespin.

    I'm not particularly interested in the gas giant that is Bespin (except that there's obvious potentional resource extraction politics and stories attached to this concept), but the Cloud City hovering in Bespin's atmosphere I am very interested in. A pure-SciFi concept created by Ralph McQuarrie <3

    Good one! I love Scarif. What an amazing layout and design. I love the beach-y feel to it, ya know?

    NABOO.
    The place where the war started, the home planet of the EMPEROR, the home planet of Luke Skywalker’s mom.................. and yet nobody mentions it or goes back there. (Except in comic books.)
    It’s a shame. Naboo is visually splendid to look at, is rich in history/culture, etc. They should go back. JJ Abrams should have hid his wayfinder device in Naboo.
