It doesn't show up until the prequels, but Naboo manages to have a major impact on the larger story of Star Wars. As the planet that Luke and Leia's mother comes from, as well as the Emperor's homeworld, Naboo can teach us a lot about what some of the saga's most central characters ultimately came to believe. Of course, Naboo is also home to Jar Jar Binks and the Gungans, and like so many of the planets in the galaxy of Star Wars, Naboo has plenty of secrets that even dedicated fans might not be aware of.
We see plenty of the beautiful, lush planet on-screen during the prequel trilogy, but the planet also has a long history that stretches both before and after those movies. Planets like Tatooine or Coruscant may seem to be more obviously interesting, but Naboo has plenty of unique qualities that make it one of the more fascinating planets in the galaxy. Take a look down below and be sure to vote up the facts about the planet you find most interesting.
