Two major planets seen in Rogue One are Jedha and Scarif. Most of the action in the film takes place on both of these places.

We promised NOT to reveal too much when it comes to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but we can tell you about the planets you will be introduced to.
In the Star Wars films we’ve been introduced to over two dozen worlds (planets) some inhabitable and others nearly uninhabitable. Though all planets in Star Wars are visually stunning and quite interesting. We wish some of these planets were real. Would it be fun to tell you’re friends, “yeah I just got back from

Once again, we cannot stress enough the visuals and spectacular imagery in the first Star Wars Universe spin-off film. Although Rogue One is a standalone film, it is a spectacular movie.
The first planet you will be introduced to is Jedha:
Jedha is another world we’ll see, it is small desert moon frosted by a permanent winter. Jedha is home to one of the first civilizations to explore the nature of the Force. It’s a place important to the Jedi, the former protectors of the galaxy. Jedha also serves as a holy site for pilgrims from across the galaxy who seek spiritual guidance. Unfortunately the Empire occupies it with its fist of oppression. A prolonged battle between Imperial forces and scattered Rebels carries on in the timeworn streets. One thing you should know is that there is an entrenched rebellion there, led by Saw Gerrera.
Another major planet that is seen in Rogue One is Scarif.
A tropical planet that has been taken over by the Imperial regime. It’s almost ironic that one of the more beautiful planets which is basically a tropical paradise is under Empire control. The planet serves one purpose and that is a major Imperial military installation. Scarif is the principal construction facility for the vast Imperial war machine. The world is enveloped in impenetrable deflector shields and is heavily defended. The planet is completely enveloped inside of a protective shield. If the Rebels were to penetrate it and infiltrate it any meaningful way, it would set back the Imperial effort significantly.
