Just ten days away from the release of The Last Jedi, the international trailer gives us a first look at a much-teased new location, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Spoilers below
The Star Wars Galaxy Coninues Expanding
RIP Cantina, there’s a new bad guy haunt in town. This one looks a lot brighter, with wide stained-glass windows and a well-lit bar. The international trailer for The Last Jedi shows a split-second view of Canto Bight, the 1%s answer to the original Cantina. The Star Wars website describes the new location as a “casino city and playground for the galaxy’s ultra-rich”. Wonder if they serve droids…
The rest of the international trailer shows footage we’ve already seen, including some flashbacks to The Force Awakens. The Hollywood Reporter explains that Canto Bight exists on the planet Cantonica, the second confirmed “new” planet for The Last Jedi. The trailer also shows a new creature helping destroy the bar; a less-icy version of the snow fox/wolf introduced in previous trailers (and included in the international version, as well.)
New footage begins around 1:58, but it’s worth checking out the whole trailer. While details about Canto Bight and the bar itself are still scarce, we do know it will serve as homebase for Benicio Del Toro’s “DJ”.
Star Wars Episode VII: The Last Jedi continues the story of Rey, Poe, Finn, and Kylo Ren. It picks up where its predecessor left off, with Rey on a mysterious island where Luke Skywalker has been hiding. She has come to him for training, but the force is unbalanced and the threat of the dark side looms once more. The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley (Rey), Oscar Issac (Poe Dameron), John Boyega (Finn), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran (Rose). Cast also includes Carrie Fisher (General Leia Organa), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Andy Serkis (Snoke), Gwendolyn Christie (Captain Phasma) and Laura Dern (Admiral Holdo).
The Last Jedi hits theatres December 15th.
