I have to strongly disagree. Beyond Tatooine, a key planet from the OT (but necessary as Anakin's home planet), all the other planets are distinct from what came before in SW. Naboo is far from just Earth. Theed and the plains are an idealised blend of fantasy Rennaisance, take one glimpse and you see we're in a more prosperous environment from the OT. Instant visual storytelling without a word of dialogue. There are several distinct biomes, such as the plains, the swamp, the city, the underwater, the lake country. There's more variety of location on this planet than any in the OT. Then there's the Gungan city, a unique location, with buildings based of bubbles, illuminating the lakebed. We see more of Coruscant in each movie, keeping it from being stale. In TPM, we get the major landmarks of the Senate and the Jedi Temple. AOTC adds the urban areas, nightclubs, industrial areas, Dex's diner. ROTS shows us the landing areas, and the upper class opera house. Again, more variety than any OT planet. And no, the appearance in the ROTJ SE doesn't count. Generic skyscrapers were all that was seen in 1997, a mere hint of the full planet, like Achh-To at the end of TFA. It was only in 2004 that the recognisable Senate and Temple were added, designed for the PT. Then there's Kamino, another new location, with a rainy exterior and sterile, white interior, perfect for the environment in which the clones are born. Geonosis, while on the surface another desert, has a completely different society from Tatooine. There's an army of worker drones, toiling in droid foundries under the surface. There's a gladiatorial arena. There's giant hive spires. Utapau and Kashyyyk are also unique, a world of giant sinkholes and a beach of giant trees, perfect for the Wookiees. Compare to the ST. Jakku: It's Tatooine. That's it. There's moistue vaporators, deserts, scavengers. The one unique feature it has, the Imperial wreckage, is undercut by the completely fine Empire that exists in the ST. Takodana: A castle by a lake, with a forest. Well, we've already seen forests on both Naboo and Endor. The castle is a nice visual, but the interior is little more than the cantina. D'Qar: It's Yavin, just without the Mayan temples. Yawn. Hosnian: It's Coruscant. At least, all we see of it is indistinguishable, and it fills the role of Coruscant as galactic capital, and the role of Alderaan to be blown up. There's nothing new here. Acch-To: The ST's first really unique planet. We get to see the nuns, the wildlife in the porgs, some varied locations. But it just fills the role of Dagobah, down to a tee, and we never really learn anything about the old Jedi Temple, the founding of the Jedi, and we only actually see two rooms (the library, the mosaic pool room). Compare to the PT Jedi Temple, where we see council chambers, the library, grand hallways, training rooms, the hangar. Varied parts, with unique functions. The mosaic pool room could be set outside and it wouldn't make a difference. Canto Bight: Another unique location. It's got a simple concept, Casino planet, but it's executed fine. I'm not a fan of the subplot, but at least the backdrop was good. Crait: It's Hoth. But with salt. It has the same Walker attack, rebel hangar, colour palette. It has those ice foxes I guess. It's not like Disney can't be more original, the new planets managed to be unique, even the desert world Jedha is different from Tatooine in a myriad of ways. It's just uninteresting to me how derivative or shallow most of the worlds in the ST are. No planet in the PT is in any way similar to an OT planet.
