Kashyyyk is a lush jungle planet where treetops serve as homes for the native Wookiees, a towering fur-covered species known to be ferocious warriors. The planet serves as a navigation gateway for the entire southwest quadrant of the galaxy, making it of prime strategic importance. During the Clone Wars, the Separatists attempted to subjugate Kashyyyk by invading it with their droid armies. In response, the Republic dispatched a task force led by Master Yoda to defend Kashyyyk. With his war council that included the Wookiee warriors Chewbacca and Tarfful, Yoda's forces were able to repulse the mechanical intruders.
