The forest moon of Endor (also known as the sanctuary moon or simply Endor), is a moon in the Star Wars universe. It is a forested world covered by giant trees.

Endor first appears in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, in which it is the body in whose orbit the second Death Star is constructed, and is the home of a race of furry aliens called Ewoks. The moon later appears in the Ewok TV movies Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, as well as the animated Marvel Comics series Star Wars: Ewoks and the original Star Tours theme park attraction at many Disney parks. It also inspired the exterior queue for Star Tours: The Adventures Continue at Disney's Hollywood Studios.[citation needed]

In one of the Star Wars Tales comics, an Imperial veteran of Endor refers to the moon being devastated by the impact of falling debris from the Death Star, which was blown up while in orbit around the moon. However, another character dismisses this as a myth, saying that most of the Death Star's mass was obliterated in the explosion, and that the Rebels "took care of the rest."[1]
