Empire Reveals New Planet Names From 'The Force Awakens'


By: Dominic Jones

Star Wars has brought us many iconic new worlds over the past 38 years, and in just 21 days The Force Awakens is set to add a few more.  We learned about the new desert planet of Jakku back in April at Celebration and since then we heard about Takodana, the sight of a significant battle in the film.  Empire confirmed Takodona today and revealed the names of two more planet from the film, D'Qar and Hosnian Prime.

According to Empire
"Takodana will, if LEGO’s tie-in kits are to be believed, be the site of a major battle in the movie, while rumours have D’Qar as a resistance base. Hosnian Prime? Well, that’s a mystery to all.

Also out there, lurking in the galaxy’s darker recesses, is the Starkiller Base, home of the First Order. The map pinpoints its origin point in the Unknown Regions. Expect it to move somewhere more happening."

It is believed that Takodana is the forest planet from the trailers and the site of Maz Kanata's castle.  We can assume based on Empire's report that D'Qar is the planet where the resistance base that was shot on location at Greenham Common last summer.
