Does Earth Exist In The Star Wars Universe?

In “Star Wars” Legends material, Earth is not a major player in the galaxy’s many conflicts, but it’s at least present. As it turns out, there are “Star Wars” works that aren’t even considered canon to the Legends continuity. This is where one is most likely to find mentions of Earth. For instance, it’s at the center of a story in the “Galactic Gossip” tabloid from 1993’s “Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas,” where it’s known as Urthha. It details the night a Duros couple was abducted by Urthha humans shortly after their wedding. The “Star Wars”-“Simpsons” crossovers also prominently feature Earth.

Perhaps the most famous overall non-canon Earth-focused “Star Wars” tale is “Into the Great Unknown” by writer W. Haden Blackman and artist Sean Murphy. The 2004 story sees Chewbacca and Han Solo send their ship, the Millennium Falcon, off into hyperspace without a destination. They land on a planet in a heavily wooded area and are attacked by enemies. In the skirmish, Han is killed by arrow-inflicted wounds. It turns out this planet is Earth and the attackers were Native Americans. Over a century later, none other than Indiana Jones and Short Round discover the Falcon while searching for the Sasquatch, aka a surviving Chewie.

At the end of the day, Earth is an incredibly small part of the grand “Star Wars” tapestry, even including non-canon and Legends mentions. At least fans can visit real-life “Star Wars” locations around the Blue Marble and get a sense of what it could be like if it were more closely attached to the galaxy far, far away.
