    One thing I love is that nearly every time Lucas went back to a planet, he brought us something new. Tatooine is in 4 of the 6 movies (ignoring the "Harry Potter" scene in ROTS); Coruscant is in 3 of the 6 movies (ignoring the celebration at the end of 6, though that technically was the first time we saw it) and every time we re-visit those planets we got something new.

    We went back to Tatooine in 6. We saw Jabba's palace (including the dungeons, and the rancor), and the Dune Sea with the Sarlacc pitt. We saw it again in 1, and we saw Mos Espa, the slave hovels, junk dealers, the pod race. We went back again in 2 and we saw the search montage and the Tusken camp.
    When we saw Coruscant again in 2, we not only got to see Padme's apartment, the streets, the traffic, the night club, and Dex' diner, we also saw more of the Jedi temple (the library, the hangar), and more of government (Palpatine's office). In ROTS, we got the opera, the military hangar, and extended looks (extended sets) into Padme's apartment and Palpatine's office.

    And I think that's pretty cool.

    We see the main locations of Coruscant in TPM, with time taken to be introduced to them. Getting to Coruscant is the goal of the first half of the movie, and we spend decent time there at the Senate and Jedi Council, and sweeping shots around Coruscant. As stated earlier, many disagree with you that Coruscant was introduced in AOTC.

    I thought Coruscant looked the best in TPM.

    ANH gave us Dex’s diner after all

    Maybe you need to work a little on your reading comprehension? Here is what I wrote:

    My reading comprehension is fine. I disagree. It comes alive in TPM plenty, and I think most people agree with that. It should be listed under TPM. There's a grand tour of Coruscant in TPM, and just a few new random locations of it in AOTC.

    You can prefer it. But Coruscant was introduced in TPM.

    unpopular opinion: The Last Jedi. Crait in particular is magical with the salt flats and red crystal caves.

    I do agree that that's the best new planet of the ST IMO.

    I was always astonished by the variety of planets in Revenge of the Sith. From Kashyyyk, Mustafar to Utapao. It definitely felt like the most epic Star Wars film in terms of scope.

    This one's tough. I acknowledge that each SW film has one or two interesting new planets, and I enjoy so many. I went with AOTC. I just really enjoyed the beauty of Naboo, the vastness of Coruscant-especially the Jedi temple, and the whole Kamino sequence is one of my favorites in SW. Geonosis is okay, but I love the battle sequence towards the climax. And although it wasn't technically "new," I really enjoyed that we saw Tattooine in both a familiar AND a new way!

    I suppose ROTS comes close, simply cos of the exoticness of the planets, and there are so many-if we include Order 66 (and why wouldn't we?). As mentioned, it truly felt epic in terms of scope. Not to mention Kashyyyk is my favorite planet in all of the films.

    But neither Naboo nor Tatooine are INTRODUCED in AOTC (not Coruscant either, in fact). So they shouldn't really count here.
    Only Kamino (which I agree is awesome) and Geonosis are actually introduced in AOTC.

    I know. But for me the collection of all those-and the events that occur on them-are what makes AOTC the one most enjoyable to me, locations-wise at least.

    Regarding Coruscant, I am one of those who agree with some of the conversation on this thread that has been posted previously; although Coruscant first appeared in TPM (ROTJ if we're being hyper-accurate), it wasn't really "featured" or fleshed out as a planet until AOTC.

    Attack of the Clones, easy. Every new world in that one feels like it is plucked right from a 50s pulp sci-fi novel cover. Kamino is probably my favorite planet in all of Star Wars.

    It's a tough choice, a lot of great ones I-VI.

    I went with ESB. Hoth, Dagobah, and Bespin are all great.

    Honorable mentions to Tatooine, Naboo, Gungan City (and THE PLANET CORE), and Kamino.
