When Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives this December, fans will be transported to exotic and captivating new worlds, including Ahch-To, Crait, and Cantonica, home to the casino city of Canto Bight. In fact, it's Canto Bight that takes center stage in a brand new photo from the upcoming eighth chapter in the Star Wars saga, along with John Boyega's Finn and Kelly Marie Tran's Rose.
The photo shows Boyega and Tran standing on one of the Canto Bight game floors, eyes firmly locked on one another. Meanwhile, we can see a handful of the galaxy's most elite gamblers in the background, placing bets and ordering drinks.
"I wanted a new environment that was like dunking your head in a cool bath of water, right in the middle of movie," director Rian Johnson told Empire when describing the Monte Carlo-esque city. "Apart from the prequels, all the touchstones that make something feel like Star Wars have to do with griminess and dirt. I wanted to do something completely different. The perception of these films is that they’re all planned out on a secret sheet of paper in advance, but that’s just not the case. I wasn’t given an outline of where it goes or even a list of things to hit. It really was just, ‘Okay, what’s next?’”
Arriving Dec. 15, director Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke.
