Unique Looking Planets
One thing that the Sequel Trilogy has not done is given us many unique looking planets. We’ve had basically recycled versions of original Trilogy planets. We got a desert world in Jakku, a snow world in Starkiller Base, an island planet in Ach-To and a couple of semi-forested planets in Takodana and D’Qar. The closest thing to a unique planet we’ve gotten is Crait and it’s white to red salt covered ground.
Revenge of the Sith is really the only Star Wars film to create a couple of totally unique looking planets. The first one is Utapau. This is a rocky looking planet with some hills and plateaus. The interesting part is that the inhabitants live in giant tunnels that burrow deep into the surface of the planet. It’s a cool idea and one that looks great in the final film.
The other totally unique planet in Revenge of the Sith is seen only briefly during the execution of Order 66 sequence. It shows Jedi Aayla Secura getting gunned down by her clones.
The planet this happens on is called Felucia and is completely original in its design. The planet is covered by large exotic looking plants who’s bright blue colors stick out in contrast to the dim gray-brown lit sky.
Whether Rise of Skywalker revisits one of these planets or creates a unique one of it’s one remains to be seen, but it would be refreshing to get something other than the standard snow, desert, or forest planet.
