I know that Mos Eisley and Mos Espa were the first and most important cities on the planet Tatooine, but in the game Star Wars: The Old Republic a lot of other "Mos-like" settlements appeared (Mos Ila, Mos Taike, Mos Gamos, Mos Anek etc).

What other settlements are there (canon), and where are they located (also canon)?


1 Answer 1


According to Canon sources, there are several settlements that fit the "Mos -" naming convention other than the two which appear in the films:

  • Mos Doba, which appears in the 2014 mobile game Star Wars Commander. Its location is not specifically given.

  • Mos Elrey, which appears in the Star Wars: Complete Locations reference book. It is located in the Western Dune Sea, at the edge the Jundland Wastes.

  • Mos Entha, which likewise appears in Star Wars: Complete Locations. It is located "across from" the Mospic High Range, a mountain range between Mos Espa and the Dune Sea.

  • Mos Pelgo, which appears most prominently in The Mandalorian, which is only specified as being in the northern hemisphere of the planet.

  • Mos Taike, another place appearing almost exclusively in Star Wars: Complete Locations. It is located on the edge of the Northern Dune Sea.

and last and certainly least,

  • Mos Zabu, a place mentioned only in episode 3 of Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, a children's game show on StarWarsKids.com.

There are, of course, settlements on Tatooine that do not fit the "Mos- " naming convention, but that is outside the scope of your question.

  • According to which canon sources?

  • Well there's two mentioned in ANH, Anchorhead and Tosche Station, and one mentioned in Complete Locations, Bestine.
