Visit the Planet Coruscant, Home to the Ultimate City

This is Star Wars concept designer Ralph McQuarrie's vision of city planet Coruscant's entertainment district - where some of the new live-action Star Wars TV series will take place. Check out Coruscant's gorgeous and seamy sides in our gallery.

We've gathered together the best of screen grabs and fan art to bring you the many faces of Coruscant. Sadly there's nothing here about Ziro the Hutt and his sissymon nightclub.
