Ahch-To is an ancient planet with a rich history. The planet was once home to the Jedi Order, and the first Jedi temple was built on the island by the very first Jedi. The temple became a center of learning and training for the Jedi, and the planet became a place of great importance to the order.

In more recent history, Ahch-To became the hiding place of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, who went into exile on the planet after the fall of the Galactic Empire. Luke believed that the Jedi needed to end, and he went into hiding to avoid being found by the remnants of the Empire or by any potential apprentices seeking his guidance.

In the years that followed, Luke lived in seclusion on Ahch-To, studying the ancient texts and meditating on the Force. It was on Ahch-To that he was visited by the young scavenger Rey, who sought his guidance in the fight against the First Order.
