Basically what the title says. I'm fairly certain pianos aren't canon in the Star Wars universe, but has there ever been an instance (in the EU, Disney canon, or non-canon works like LEGO Star Wars) where a piano has existed?

    what do you mean by piano? Max Rebo is certainly playing a keyboard instrument - starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Red_ball_jett_organ

    What about Weird Al's Anakin Guy (no link at the moment)? Aug 7 at 12:15

    @CaptainJamesT.Kirk - youtube.com/watch?v=hEcjgJSqSRU I briefly considered including it, but it's a parody (e.g. produced without authorisation from LucasFilm) rather than a non-canon but licensed property like Lego Star Wars

    @Valorum You don't think Weird Al got permission from LucasFilm? I know he makes a point of getting permission from the musicians he parodies (even though he doesn't legally have to), I'd imagine he might do the same with film studios? Aug 8 at 13:46

We see someone playing what looks very much like a double-keyboard piano at the Canto Bight Casino in The Last Jedi

And there's an upright piano being played in the Lego Star Wars special Bombad Bounty

    I'm going to argue that that is NOT an upright piano in Bombard Bounty, but instead an electric organ. This is based on the music being played in that scene having reggae roots.

    That's not a piano

    @Valorum Well a very predictable comment. It's clearly a space piano that likely follows the same key scale as an Earth piano. And it has black and white keys like an earth piano. Aug 7 at 1:23
  • Is the holiday special really canon?

  • Most of the discussion about whether or not this classifies as a piano has been removed; lets just leave it be now. I don't think we really need to have such a debate on the matter and even if it's bending the rules of the question (in your (the reader's) opinion) that's not necessary a bad thing for something like this.
