Of all places, why Dagobah? What makes Dagobah so safe or comfortable for him?


2 Answers 2


According to the new Star Wars: Absolutely Everything you Need to Know, Dagobah is ideal because it's

Shrouded in clouds, thick with fog and far from the civilised galaxy,

making it the

perfect refuge for a Jedi Master in hiding

It also mentions the planet's extremely high levels of life (allowing for a greater connection to the Force while he meditates on the downfall of the Jedi) and the Force cave which shrouds his light side Force from the Emperor.

  1. Dagobah was on the outer rim, far away from anywhere important or from anything of influence.
  2. The tree/cave there had a strong dark side of the force presence which would have masked his ability with the force from Vader and the empire.
