In Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Anakin briefly mentions a race of people called the Angels, with no information other than their name, homeworld and supposed beauty.

Since then, however, a few Angels have appeared in the tv series, but this debuted much later.

So, was there any information at all on the Angels before their appearance in the tv show? Information from interviews with George and other non-universe sources are fine too.

I'm just wondering if they were ever planned to appear, or just something invented surperficially as a throw away line.


Between the release of The Phantom Menance on May 19,1999 and Star Wars: The Clone Wars S01E18: Mystery of a Thousands Moons on February 13, 2009 the Angels were referenced in the following works

  • Thanks for the answer, but I'm actually asking for any information before the tv series, that wasn't in the movie. – Recelica May 26 '17 at 20:06

    @Recelica - So you mean AFTER the movie but BEFORE the show? And are you looking for Canon only answers? Or Legends too? – amflare May 26 '17 at 20:14
  • Yes. Any information at all, even brief mentions of any kind. – Recelica May 26 '17 at 20:21
  • I've downvoted. This answer doesn't address the question asked. – Valorum May 26 '17 at 20:35

    @Thunderforge - Interesting. I never played the game so I didn't know. Technically it counts as a brief mention, so I'll leave it in my answer. – amflare May 26 '17 at 22:41
