The Battle or Invasion of Naboo refers to a pre-Clone Wars conflict in the fictional Star Wars universe that occurred on the peaceful planet Naboo shortly after the Invasion of Theed (Naboo's capital city) in which the organisation called the Trade Federation sent an army of battle droids to take over the city and take the planet's queen, Padmé Amidala, hostage. Fortunately, she was aided by two Jedi warriors, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn who helped her escape in order to seek help from the Galactic Senate on the planet Coruscant and thus stop the Trade Federation.

The battle itself began with the massing of the Gungan Grand Army in the plain fields not too far away from the city of Theed. The Trade Federation considered the Gungans a weak force that should be wiped out quickly, but it gave the Queen, returning from Coruscant, an opportunity to distract most of the droids in central Theed and recapture her own besieged palace. Because of the Senate's delay, she would have to take matters into her own hands.


The Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray and his advisors asked permission from Darth Sidious to begin deploying their forces and occupy Naboo until the trade dispute was resolved in their favor. Sidious gave Gunray his permission, clearly guiding the attack from behind the scenes when in fact he was secretly the same man who was up for the office of Chancellor of the Republic and so Sidious was in fact manipulating both sides. Nute Gunray is a fictional character from the Star Wars universe. ... Palpatine (c. ...


The Gungan Grand Army made up of the humanoid Gungan species, joined with the human inhabitants of Naboo such as Theed security forces and fighter pilots in order to become more powerful. The Gungans, the Naboo exiles, and the members of the Naboo resistance soon assembled in the plains with their leaders to plan the attack. The Gungan Grand Army was sent to distract the droid armies in the fields. Simultaneously, the Queen and her small security forces infiltrated Theed with the purpose of retaking the city and capturing Nute Gunray in order to force a settlement in Naboo's favor and stopping Gunray and his corrupt Trade Federation.


Another force of Naboo starfighters was sent to destroy the Trade Federation's Droid Control Ship Profiteer orbiting the planet in order to disrupt (and if possible, wipe out) the commanding system of the droid armies who were controlled inside the giant battleship.


The battle back on the planet's surface was victorious for the people of Naboo. However, a mysterious warrior who seemed to be on neither the side of Naboo nor on the Trade Federation's side and who was believed to be named Darth Maul struck a fatal blow to Qui-Gon Jinn, and was in turn killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Profiteer was destroyed with all of its crew, thanks mostly to the Force-guided efforts of Anakin Skywalker. Despite four trials in the Supreme Court charged with his invasion, Gunray still retained his title as Viceroy of the Trade Federation. Darth Maul (c. ...


The battle took place in 32 BBY and is depicted in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, and it ended with the deactivation of the Trade Federation's droid army and expulsion from Naboo to face the judgment of the Galactic Republic Senate on Coruscant.

Events

The Battle of Naboo was in fact the general title of a series a smaller battles and events. Here is the quick list of the activities which made up the Battle of Naboo:

  • Siege of Theed - Trade Federation forces landing in the vast woodland swamps of Naboo emerge from the forests into Theed with troops of battle droids and army tanks (AATs). The city is captured, but Queen Amidala and her protectors escape aboard her ship. Theed's governor Sio Bibble is left in captivity of the Trade Federation.
  • Rebellion on Theed - During their Queen's absence (and supposed death), Naboo freedom fighters revolted against the intruding Trade Federation whose Viceroy had settled in quite nicely to the Royal Palace. The initial rebellion was failed, however, droid forces occupying the swamps were driven out temporarily.
  • Alliance with the Gungans - When the Queen returns from Coruscant, realising she has to take matters into her own hands, she lands her ship in the Naboo swamps and makes an alliance with the Gungans (amphibious inhabitants of Naboo who have for a long time had bad relations with the humans who run Theed's government) and persuades them to help fight off the Trade Federation since their underwater cities will eventually be captured too. The Gungans agree and form their courageous military, the Gungan Grand Army.
  • Swamp Invasion - the Trade Federation Droid Army prepared to attack the underwater Gungan cities possibly with their waterproof droidekas. They were diverted, however, when they received news of another rebellion breaking out in the swamps (which was in fact the queen and her personal guards making their way to the Palace).
  • Gungan Plains Battle - Gungan forces group their army on an open hilly field where Trade Federation MTTs dispatch thousands of battle droids. Gungan technology is primitive and although their army is protected by a single enormous deflector shield dome, the driod army quickly breaks through resulting in countless Gungan casualties. Very soon, the Gungans are forced into submission.
  • Palace Battle - The Gungan Battle is in fact more of a diversion so that many droids will leave the city to fight. This gives the queen and her small force a chance to recapture their besieged palace. With the help of her decoy Sabé and head of security Captain Panaka, Queen Amidala reaches the throne room and traps the Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray, thus taking back the city.
  • Naboo Space Battle - High above, Naboo starfighters initiate an assault on the droid ship Profiteer and child pilot Anakin Skywalker destroys the ship's reactor, causing it to self-destruct and for the droid armies on the surface to completely deactivate. Naboo wins the battle, but they also win back their home.
  • Peace on Naboo - the Gungan and human natives of Naboo have an enormous parade to celebrate newfound peace between the two Nabooan societies who were able to join forces and defeat the Trade Federation.
