While it may appear the Star Wars universe is expansive and all-encompassing, there are still parts of the galaxy that have yet to be explored, both for fans and the characters. Among the most cryptic and discussed parts of the Star Wars galaxy are the Unknown Regions. To most of the characters in Star Wars, the Unknown Regions are an unfamiliar place shrouded in mystery and legend. Yet the sector and the many Unknown Regions species have played crucial roles throughout the Skywalker saga. Locations and people from the Unknown Regions play a major role in the events of all three Star Wars trilogies, with everything coming to a head on Exegol in the series-concluding Rise of Skywalker.
