Fans have already been teased with the happenings in the underbelly of the capital of the Republic (and later Empire). During the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a four-episode arc featuring Ashoka along with Trace and Rafa Martez gave a glimpse into the life of those who live below the surface.
Attack of the Clones also featured a short peak into civilian life on Coruscant in an early scene where Anakin and Obi-Wan are searching for bounty hunter Zam Wesell in a crowded bar in the lower levels.
Other than those two small entries, we do not know much about the day-to-day happenings of Coruscant or much about the planet as a whole. The planet was described in The Phantom Menace as being one giant city. With that being said, there is certainly no shortage of stories to tell.
There was a video game that was supposed to feature this very setting entitled “Star Wars: 1313” but the game was canceled in 2013 after Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm.
Exploring this area of Star Wars would bring a sense of novelty and depth to the already massive franchise. Fans are familiar with the Jedi Order by now and while those stories are compelling in their own right, a closer look into Coruscant’s regular inhabitants could give viewers a new sense of understanding of the Star Wars mythos.
