    This could possibly contain spoilers, once there are some. Right now it's safe. I was just thinking about how Lucas has a tendency to cut ideas from then-current drafts of his story, only to save them and being them back in different contexts. This can include concepts (the floating city, air whales), names (Whitesun, Bink), places (the city planet), etc. If you go through the prequels and compare them to old drafts of the originals, or even of other prequels, you'll see a lot of this. The plot of TPM itself is very similar to one of the early drafts of what became ANH.

    I was thinking that Lucas may have almost run out of stuff to repurpose... but surely there is at least a little bit left. Anybody got any ideas?

    (Please at least reference where you got the concept from when posting.)

    The blue planet Aquilae. From a story treatment of A New Hope, a planet we never saw.
