It was a joke: Star Wars planetary map uses the name “Kira.”


The Italian Star Wars Facebook page shared a planetary map of the Star Wars galaxy focused on routes from the sound of it:



Now, you’ll notice that “Kira” has become a planet. The name was used for Rey during the filming of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There was a theory that Rey was born as “Kira” and finds out later on in the film. Unless she’s named after the planet, it would seem Rey is just Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

Not every planet is listed and it makes me wonder if the galaxy doesn’t revolve around Coruscant any longer? Interesting stuff!

Thanks to Roberto for the heads up!
