Ord Mantell Screens and Concepts

Star Wars: The Old Republic Media - By Guest Writer on April 13, 2009

Ord Mantell Screens and Concepts
 advertisement 

The folks over at BioWare Austin have posted an overview of the most recent planet revealed to be a part of the upcoming and hotly anticipated MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Ord Mantel, the planet in questions, is a world that has been mentioned but never seen in the Star Wars films, but has featured prominently in expanded lore.

The Bioware article tells us that a civil war rages on Ord Mantell between the Republic’s military and a separatist movement, and it seems as though that is going to be the focus in terms of how the game itself approaches the planet.

If you’re interested in seeing what the folks at BioWare had to say about the planet, you can check out their overview article here.

Just for kicks, we thought it might be fun to head over to a great source for all things Star Wars, Wookkeepedia and check out what they had to say about this world. You can find the full Wookieepedia listing here:

Cannon References

  • Han Solo actually references the planet in Episode V: The Empire Strikes back when he’s arguing with Princess Leia on Hoth and says: "Well, the bounty hunter we ran into on Ord Mantell changed my mind.
  • Col Serra, a friend of Han’s describes the planet as, “Just one big junkyard. With a couple of cantinas to keep bored spacers entertained between lightspeed jumps." This happens in the Pandemic video game Star Wars: Battlefront.
  • Not to be outdone, years earlier (though still some time after the setting of TOR), Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi were actually on the planet in the process of looking into the issue of a missing cargo ship.
