The Many Worlds of Star Wars


With the release of The Last Jedi on Friday, we just couldn’t get enough Star Wars. So, in addition to our discussion with faculty about the robotics featured in the films, we also put together this fun data visualization that explores the planets of Star Wars, their habitats, and the characters who were born there. The legend below describes how planets and their features are visualized.

Planets and characters that are featured in each film will highlight upon filtering by film. Select a yellow circle to see the characters who were born on each planet.
