Kef Bir is an ocean moon and one of nine in the Endor System. Pelted with debris from the second Death Star after its destruction. Now home to tribes who seem to have ties with the First Order.

After the Millennium Falcon crash lands, Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, C-3PO, BB-8 and new droid D-0 meet Janna, played by Naomi Ackie, one of the planets inhabitants. Rey uses the Sith Dagger to locate the wayfinder and in her drive to locate it takes a wave rider to the ruins of the Death Star ahead of the others. There she confronts Kylo Ren and a force power within.
