Brodo Asogi is a planet located somewhere in the galaxy. It's the homeworld of a race of sapient beings simply known as the "Children of the Green Planet", Flopglopples, and various other sapients which may or may not be native.
The planet is known by many other names, including Vomestra, Od-Di-Pa V, Tum Lux O-Ty, and Alata Zerka; all of these meaning "Green Planet" in some language.
In the book E.T.: The Book of the Green Planet, a "former world" that E.T.'s species used to inhabit is mentioned, so it's possible that they are actually not indigenous to Brodo Asogi. Since "Brodo Asogi" means "Green Planet" and they address themselves as "Children of the Green Planet", this appears to be a contradiction. However, they may simply refer to whatever planet they're from as the "Green Planet", which would explain the inconsistency.
The Children of the Green Planet were represented in the Galactic Republic by Senator Grebleips, who funded an expedition to the Milky Way Galaxy. One of the expedition members, nicknamed E.T., was accidentally left on planet Earth, but was rescued later.

Behind the scenesEdit
E.T. was the protagonist of Steven Spielberg's famous sci-fi movie E.T. the Extraterrestrial, which tells the story of E.T. being left on Earth and trying to call his people to rescue him. The names of his species and his homeworld were later revealed in the book E.T.: The Book of the Green Planet.
Members of E.T.'s species, notably Grebleips (whose name is "Spielberg" spelled backwards) later appeared in the Star Wars movie The Phantom Menace, with other canonical appearances and mentions occurring in the Star Wars expanded universe. That means that planet Brodo Asogi is located within the Star Wars galaxy, known simply as "the galaxy".
In promotional material for E.T. the Extraterrestrial, it is stated that the little alien was "3,000,000 light years from home" when he was lost on Earth. Since galaxies such as our own Milky Way are only about 100,000 light years wide, he would in fact be an extragalactic being. A large galaxy, Triangulum is in the right distance to be E.T.'s home, meaning that Triangulum might actually be the Star Wars galaxy, a theory supported by the classification of Triangulum being a spiral, which is the galaxy type the Star Wars galaxy is typically considered to be. Additionally, the ship that appeared in E.T. looks quite similar to a Lucrehulk-class Core Ship, which may mean that the Trade Federation, Techno Union, or another wealthy financial power may have been key in financing Grebleips' expedition.
However, assuming that E.T. and Star Wars are in fact part of the same universe, which seems to be well supported by all canon sources, we have what might be considered a continuity problem: in E.T. the Extraterrestrial, it's clear that the Star Wars franchise is a work of fiction in the film's universe, just like it is in reality. Star Wars action figures and costumes are shown in the film with the E.T.'s odd recognition of Yoda being notable. There are some proposed solutions, though, mostly involving the Whills, a mysterious race of alien beings to which the whole Star Wars story was told, by R2-D2.
