It appeared in Star Wars: Clone Wars "chapter 22" and was named "the purple planet" due to its purplish hue.

The planet was used as a battle site between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, so I would assume that after battling on a planet, they may have given it a more meaningful name?

  • It seems that Star Wars wiki does not have a name for it besides Purple planet. – Kreann Oct 16 '14 at 15:53
  • Perhaps Planet Nexium? – Matt Gutting Oct 17 '14 at 2:59
  • @MattGutting any references on this? – SaturnsEye Oct 17 '14 at 7:25

    @SaturnsEye "Nexium" is an acid reflux medicine commonly called the Purple Pill. Matt was making a joke. – Firebat Oct 18 '14 at 7:24

This planet appears to be Xagobah, a fungal world. Wookieepedia describes it at "shrouded in purplish mists...caused by spores and pollen."

Boba Fett: A New Threat, by Elizabeth Hand relates the battle from Fett's perspective as he attempts to collect a bounty on CIS leader Wat Tambor who is fortified inside a bioengineered fortress termed "Mazariyan".

  • interesting, but the Wookiepedia image doesn't look very.. purple – SaturnsEye Oct 17 '14 at 7:27
  • @SaturnsEye - wookiepedia is notoriously inaccurare. Why would the colors there be? :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Oct 17 '14 at 14:30
  • I have no idea, once again, my brother wrote that. From what I've read though there's like, a ton of mushrooms, and I guess they'd just have different color spores. Maybe purple planet is a planet with flora similarities? – Vince Scalia Oct 17 '14 at 15:15
