Vandor, also known as Vandor-1, was a cold frontier world in the galaxy's Mid Rim. Despite Vandor being sparsely settled, the Galactic Empire had a growing presence on the planet. Fort Ypso was a snowy mountain village located on Vandor.
In order to acquire coaxium for Dryden Vos and the Crimson Dawn, Tobias Beckett and his crew carried out a heist on an Imperial conveyex train located on Vandor. They were assisted by Han Solo and Chewbacca, who had escaped Mimban on Beckett's stolen Y-45 armored transport hauler. The heist ultimately failed, due to the interference of Enfys Nest's Cloud-Riders, who also attempted to steal the coaxium, leading Solo to drop the cargo in order to save the survivors of Beckett's crew.
Behind the scenesEdit
Vandor-1 was first mentioned in Coruscant and the Core Worlds, a 2003 sourcebook for the now-Legends Star Wars Roleplaying Game. The planet was re-canonized for the 2018 Star Wars film Solo: A Star Wars Story. The first footage of the planet was shown in the "Big Game Super Bowl TV spot released on February 4, 2018. In Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide, Vandor is placed in the Mid Rim, rather in the Core Worlds.
Early inspirations for the look of Vandor-1 in Solo came from art of the American West by late 19th century painter Frederic Remington, particularly the 1906 paint A Taint on the Wind, and the 20th century illustrator Robert McGinnis. Another inspiration for Vandor-1 were the lavish landscapes of the American West by the 19th century painters Frederick Church and and Albert Bierstadt.
