Recently unveiled at Star Wars Celebration was the map that will be displayed in the front of the upcoming reference book *Star Wars Timelines*, providing a sort of long-desired update to *The Essential Atlas *from the author who worked on both books, Jason Fry. It’s a beast of a map, with 742 total locations visible. For this post, I want to go through all of the 376 new placements. I’m counting “new” as never having been on one of these cool, thorough grid maps before, which means if a planet has been on another simpler map I’m still going to include it.

Anaxes (R-7) and Vandor (P-14) are the only two worlds on the map to have moved significantly away from their original *Atlas *placing, due to their use in canon stories making their old placements impossible.

Almost all of the 366 returning worlds fall into five categories: worlds from the films or *The Clone Wars*; alien homeworlds; worlds from key Legends stories like the classic Marvel comics, *The Han Solo Adventures*, *The Thrawn Trilogy*, and more; Legends worlds that have had increased prominence in recent years due to use in other material; and worlds made geographically notable in *The Essential Atlas*. I decided it wasn’t worth thoroughly breaking down those four categories, at least not yet, but I did make a PDF list of the returning worlds here.
