What is exactly the maximum range of the teleportation ability?

I did not find any mention of how far someone can teleport in the wiki. Mother Talzin in The Clone Wars S04E19 managed to teleport far away from Grievous to where Asajj Ventress was. So, it proves that it's possible to teleport long distances. But is it possible to teleport from one planet to another?

    The wiki repeatedly mentions a likely maximum range; eyeball distance – Valorum Jun 11 '18 at 22:44

    I expect it depends on the will of the Plot ... uh, Force. Will of the Force. – Harry Johnston Jun 12 '18 at 1:49
  • Is Mother Talzin using the force? – Edlothiad Jun 12 '18 at 15:02
  • No idea, but you definitely can’t ever do it while travelling at warp speed. – Paul D. Waite Jun 12 '18 at 15:05
  • yes Mother talzin definitely uses force, to be exact the nightsisters use dark side of the force.They just call it magic. – Johann Alexis Faust Jun 12 '18 at 16:01

Mother Talzin and other Nightsisters use something called Magick, a mysterious aspect of the Force. Some claim that it comes from Dark Side, some that it is a gift from Winged Goddess, some that source of its power came from ichor in the depths of Dathomir.

Powerful witches like Talzin have the ability to transfer to something called the "spirit world", with their body disappearing from the physical realm. With some effort, Talzin could also recreate her body as witnessed in her final fight against Sidious. What exactly this spirit world is and how did it operates is presently unknown to us, and likely never to be fully reviled because Disney decided not to pursue the Dathomirian plot anymore - the Nightsister cult is effectively destroyed and they have been for all practical purposes removed from further stories.

As for other users of teleport ability, they belong to Legends, with even less rules. Most notable examples are of course from the game Star Wars: The Old Republic, where this power limited itself to local transfers of either user himself or someone whom he wished to move. Unlike Mother Talzin, they could not use Force Teleport to travel long distances.

  • What about Fold Space Technique? Are there any hint of this techniques range in Extended universe? – Johann Alexis Faust Jun 13 '18 at 15:07

    @JohannAlexisFaust Who knows. Abeloth was almost like deity in Legends, she had physical avatars but her true presence was in the Force . From what I know, she was not restricted by distance in her true form. – rs.29 Jun 13 '18 at 17:35
