Do we know what system the planet Rey finds Luke on is in?

    We do not know the system. We know the name of the planet ("Ahch-To", @MikeEdenfield) but it's NOT in any prior canon/legends. We DO know that it's near known space, since Han recognizes some nebulae nearby in BB-8th map portion (in novelization). – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 14 '16 at 1:10
  • @DVK thanks for the help. – Thomas Shera Jan 14 '16 at 1:32
  • I'm sure someone can perform a Ramathorn Enhance on a scene in the movie and figure it out.... – Skooba Apr 19 '16 at 18:55

The planet is called "Ahch-To". The name of the system hasn't been revealed, but since Tatooine is in the "Tatoo system", Dantooine is in the "Dantooine system", and Alderaan is was in the "Alderaan system", it might well be the "Ahch system" or "Ahch-To system"

From the leaked WGA script:


A pristine and mighty OCEAN. Endless BLUE, dotted with random, beautiful, mountainous BLACK ROCK ISLANDS, dotted with countless GREEN TREES.

The Millennium Falcon FLIES INTO VIEW, BANKS towards one of the ISLANDS.



Rey arrives at a clearing. Small, modest, primitive stone structures. But no one around. Rey walks past them, sees, senses no one.

And then she stops. Feels something. She turns. Standing forty feet away from her, his back to us, is a MAN, in a CLOAK AND ROBE.

Rey stares, knowing exactly who it is. But she just stares for what seems like forever. Until he finally TURNS, SLOWLY, to her. Pulls back his hood.


Lucasfilm's Pablo Hidalgo confirmed this on Twitter:

So if you can see the WGA script, yes, the name of the planet from the end of the movie is there.

As does Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary, and - as seen in this picture - Star Wars: Rey's Story:

Those words were still echoing in Rey's head as she flew the Falcon high above Ahch-To... Rey recognized the landscape from her dreams.

  • I'm not really sure why you need a picture of the book – Valorum Jul 23 '16 at 22:44

The tie-in novel The Force Awakens: Rey's Story indicates that the planet is called Ahch-To.

Those words were still echoing in Rey’s head as she flew the Falcon high above Ahch-To. Rocky islands blanketed with beautiful green trees jutted from the water that covered the planet.
