The Star Wars Zoom backgrounds draw from the movies' most iconic locations, including the Millennium Falcon, Tatooine, Cloud City, the Death Star and the Rebel Base. Places from the sequel trilogy — The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker – are also represented, like Jakku, Exegol and Kylo Ren's Star Destroyer. Baby Yoda might cry, though, since The Mandalorian isn't among the choices.
