LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga: Every Missing Planet From The Galaxy Map – Screen Rant


LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features an impressive list of open world planets, but some places from the films are missing from the galaxy map.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is TT Games’ most ambitious LEGO game yet, but despite covering all nine Skywalker Saga films, it appears that some planets from them didn’t make it onto the galaxy map. While fans of the Star Wars franchise are eagerly awaiting the release of several new Star Wars games, such as the High Republic-set Star Wars Eclipse, many are looking to the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga as their next chance to travel to a galaxy far, far away. As a retelling of the nine films in the Skywalker Saga (leaving out The Clone Wars, Rogue One, and Solo: A Star Wars Story) in tiny brick form, it should be a great way for players to experience their favorite moments from each of the nine films in a game that is not only family-friendly, but clearly built with hardcore fans in mind as well.
A recent trailer for the next LEGO Star Wars not only showed off some of the amazing new gameplay features and location designs, but also revealed several interesting tidbits of information that fans can obsess over. One of the most telling bits was the revelation of LEGO Star Wars: Skywalker Saga‘s in-game galaxy map, which showed off all 24 planets that players can travel to. Each of these planets acts as a hub world of sorts, where players can free-roam, explore the planet and solve various puzzles to unlock new features. While the vast majority of the planets from the nine films do appear on the galaxy map, there are a few notable exceptions (and a few that may be less notable) that sadly didn’t make the cut.

That being said, just because a planet doesn’t appear on the galaxy map, doesn’t mean it won’t appear in-game at all. The galaxy map only displays the planets that will be available to players to explore in the free roam mode. Like all the original LEGO Star Wars games, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will feature replayable missions in addition to the free roam mode, which will take players through a more linear section of the story. These sections will likely utilize at least some of the locations that don’t appear in the game’s free roam mode, including certain space stations that don’t appear on the game’s galaxy map. Still, there are other locations that likely won’t make it into the game, especially if its role in the story was brief or lacked impact.
Alderaan and Hosnian Prime are two very important planets in Star Wars lore that viewers see very little of in their respective films. This is due to each planet being destroyed as a major part of the plot. Despite not appearing in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga‘s gameplay trailers, Alderaan is a planet known to even the most casual Star Wars fans. This is due to the extremely memorable scene in Star Wars: A New Hope where Alderaan is completely destroyed as a demonstration of the Death Star’s terrifying powers. Despite never showing the planet’s surface in A New Hope, much of the plot revolves around Alderaan. It is the homeworld of Leia Organa, whose father, Bail Organa, is an influential leader in the rebellion. The planet later reappears in the prequel film, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, when Senator Bail Organa brings home an infant Leia to his wife. It is here that viewers get to see that Alderaan is a beautiful planet with sweeping mountainscapes.
Hosnian Prime plays an important, albeit minor, role in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, and might appear in a cutscene in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga‘s sequel trilogy section. After the war with the Empire ended, Hosnian Prime became the capital of the New Republic, and the home of the new galactic senate. In The Force Awakens, Hosnian Prime is one of the planets that is obliterated by Starkiller Base in an attempt to wipe out the New Republic and plunge the galaxy into chaos. Hosnian Prime originally played a larger role in The Force Awakens‘ story, with a side-plot featuring Resistance Commander Korr Sella trying to convince the New Republic senate to take action against the First Order. Unfortunately, the scenes were cut from the final film, and Korr Sella is only briefly seen on a balcony on Hosnian Prime as the planet is destroyed.
Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith introduced viewers to several new planets that were key battleground zones in the Clone Wars. With LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga‘s improved combat mechanics, these battles could be a lot of fun to relive. Sadly, it’s unlikely that many of these planets will appear, due to the small role they played in the film’s overall narrative. In particular, the planets where the key Jedi were killed during the Order 66 scene do not appear in the in-game galaxy map.

Arguably the most popular of these is Felucia, a jungle planet where Jedi Master Aayla Secura is killed by her own battalion of Clone Troopers. The planet has been featured in The Clone Wars show and has appeared in several video games, most recently in Star Wars Battlefront 2. Mygeeto is another planet that has appeared in video games before. This battleground zone is the location where Jedi Master Ki-Adi Mundi was killed during Order 66.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga‘s impressive vehicle roster could have made Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith‘s Cato Neimodia scene a lot of fun to play. In this scene, Jedi Master Plo Koon is leading an aerial assault on the planet Cato Neimodia, a colony planet of the Neimodians and the primary base of operations of the Trade Federation. The beautiful planet was known for its “Bridge Cities” and it was above one of these cities that Plo Koon is unfortunately shot down by his own troopers during Order 66. Saleucami is another planet shown in the film during Order 66. It is on this desert planet that Stass Allie is betrayed by her troopers. While these planets are only briefly explored in the film, their importance in the Clone Wars makes them big points of interest for fans that would have been exciting to explore in the game.
The list of locations in The Skywalker Saga may not include some minor locations from Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker. Early in the film, Finn and Poe visit the Sinta Glacier, a location that houses the Sinta Glacier colony, in order to meet with a miner who has been supplying information to the Resistance. When they are chased by the First Order, Poe Dameron hyperspace skips through several locations before losing the First Order in the Megafauna Chasm of the Typhonic Nebula. Only one of the locations he skips to is on a planet, that being Ivexia, which is famous for its Mirror-Spires. Sadly, neither the Sinta Glacier nor Ivexia appear on the galaxy map, though they may feature in a mission during the Rise of Skywalker storyline.
Ilum is a name that many fans may not at first recognize, but they will likely immediately know its most famous landmark, Starkiller Base. Ilum (and Starkiller Base) are a surprising omission from the game’s galaxy map, especially considering it was explorable in 2016’s LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, the location is likely to appear in the game, as it is the primary location of The Force Awakens’ third act, but much like the two Death Stars, it appears players won’t be able to explore the base in free roam, nor will they be able to explore the surrounding planet. Ilum itself has appeared in several Star Wars games, including Star Wars: The Old Republic and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It is a planet important to the Jedi and the Sith, due to its Kyber core and surface rich with Kyber crystals.
While there may be around 300 playable characters in LEGO Star Wars: Skywalker Saga, there are few more important than Luke Skywalker and his sister, Leia. While the two were raised on Tatooine and Alderaan, respectively, the twins were actually born in an asteroid field made of the remains of what was once the planet, Polis Massa. While the planet itself was long gone by the time viewers are introduced to it in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, the base in the asteroid field serves as an important location in Star Wars lore. It was not only the birthplace of Luke and Leia, but also the death place of Padme Amidala. It served for a while as a safe haven for Jedi after Order 66, until it was discovered years later by Darth Vader.
The final location only appeared in the Star Wars films during visions and flashbacks, and later reappeared in The Book of Boba Fett, when Din Djarin, who will be playable in LEGO Star Wars: Skywalker Saga as DLC, went to visit Grogu during his Jedi training. This unnamed verdant planet was the location of Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Temple, and appeared in Rey’s vision in The Force Awakens as well as during Luke’s flashback in The Last Jedi when he nearly killed Ben Solo. Although none of these locations will be part of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga‘s galaxy map, they may still appear in the game as locations in the game’s missions.
