I was surprised when I realised that Jakku was not the camp Rey was scavenging/living at but the name of the entire planet show grew up on. I had assumed early on in the movie she was on Tatooine as both other trilogies started there. Following that, I tried to keep track of the names of other planets shown and failed miserably. This is odd because I am familiar with most of the names of planets in the other trilogies.

What are the names of all of the planets shown in Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens?

    This movie doesnt really mention the planet names like most of the other ones did

Appearing as a planet in the film: (I tried to order in the chronology of being seen on screen)

  • Jakku

    The planet where Rey lived and the one we see at the start of the film

    New to canon. It was first mentioned in pre-sequel novel "Aftermath".

  • Takodana

    The "outlaw hangout" planet run by Maz Kanata and where the crew arrives

    New to canon.

  • Unnamed planet where

    Knights of Ren attacked in Rey's vision.

  • D'Qar

    The main base of the Resistance, where Leia is based

    New to canon. First appeared in Lost Stars book.

  • Unnamed "white world" planet that First Order

    turned into Starkiller weapon

  • Hosnian Prime - the current seat of the Republic


    New to canon.

  • 4 other unnamed planets in Hosnian system


  • Unnamed ocean planet at the end of the film where

    Luke Skywalker is hiding out

    As of right now, the screenplay sent to WGA calls it "AHCH-TO", which was confirmed by Pablo Hidalgo's "This is not canon twitter" account

Mentioned in the film:

  • Trillia (presumed to be a planet where Trillia Massacre occured)

  • Alderaan (in the context of its destruction - mentioned in novelization)

  • But that doesn't make sense, jakku was a desert planet. How is the very first planet jakku? It's a white planet, and by the looks of the scene, you're looking up at it as kylo Ren's ship passes over and the assault craft head down towards jakku. Commented May 17, 2017 at 11:54
  • Unless BB-8 jumped on some kind of transport, Jakku has to be the planet upon which was the base that was raided by the First Order. Commented May 17, 2017 at 13:23

According to Wookieepedia, the following planets are seen in The Force Awakens:

  • Jakku
  • Takadona
  • Hosnian Prime
  • D'Qar
  • Starkiller Base

(Assuming you consider Starkiller Base a planet, which is sort of is.)

  • From the article you cite: "R2-D2 suddenly awakes and reveals that he holds the map to Luke's location, with the only piece of the map missing being the one BB-8 was given by Poe. Together they complete the map and reveal the location of Ahch-To, the planet on which Luke Skywalker sought out the first Jedi Temple."
