With The Force Awakens basically giving us newer versions of old planets like Jakku (Tatooine) and Starkiller Base (Hoth), Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi is said to be taking us to an entirely different place — this one being a Casino Planet named Canto Bight.

According to Making Star Wars, it's still unclear on whether Canto Bight is the actual name of the planet or merely an on-set codename, but judging by how it sounds, it might as well fit right in in the Star Wars universe.

The exteriors of the planet are said to take place in Croatia, but the interiors were all shot in Pinewood Studios. Fans think that Finn (John Boyega), now recruited in the Resistance, is being sent there to gather some intel on the First Order. There are also rumors that Justin Theroux's character will be taking part in the sequences in Canto Bight.


With Star Wars Celebration just around the corner, fans are hoping — heck, they're sure — that we'll finally be getting the first trailer for The Last Jedi. With only eight months left till the movie comes out, marketing should kick in for movie pretty soon. Hopefully the reveal happens during Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy's panel on April 14.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes out on Dec. 15.
