Star Wars The Last Jedi

Let’s make a jump to Canto Bight, the casino city that plays a major role in The Last Jedi. We don’t know much about this place, but it has been said that it’s a place of luxury in the galaxy where the rich go to escape from the worries of the war that is being wages around them. Here’s a shot of the casino with all the rich assholes cavorting about.

Here’s one of those rich assholes now. Much like the Mos Eisley cantina from the original Star Wars, it looks like Canto Bight is filled with tons of alien races that we haven’t seen before. This guy is a slimy, insect-looking customer, and it looks like he (or maybe she) is hitting it off with a couple of ladies in the casino. They’re really open-minded in the Star Wars universe.

Look at this guy! He’s super-psyched to be in a Star Wars movie. I would say that he’s adorable and just looks like he’s happy all the time, but there’s another alien of the same race behind him, and that just appears to be how they look. Maybe that’s what makes them more intimidating. You think they’re being nice, but then bam, hostile takeover by galactic corporation. They gotta be little scamps.

Here’s a saucy alien getting ready for the next shot. One of the crew members seems to be giving her a final look before the cameras role and she strikes a sassy little pose. I can see this being the kind of alien that inevitably becomes part of some creepy fan fiction online.

Here’s a shot inside Canto Bight from one of the monitors. Just looks like some humans and aliens are having a good time gambling – wait, what the hell is that guy in the middle? He’s got huge eyebrows and little tufts of white hair above his ears, and he looks like he could be some kind of grandfather to a ventriloquist dummy who kills people. That’s one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen in the Star Wars universe.

Everyone may be having a good time in Canto Bight staying away from the fighting between the Resistance and the First Order, but it looks like these rich jerks can’t hide from the action for long. The sizzle reel features this shot of a stuntman being yanked through the air by wires, presumably because some kind of explosion goes off. Or maybe some alien just got pissed off about losing a bet?

That’s entirely possibly, because this shot of a little bug-looking guy features a big burly, hairy alien in the background getting mad enough that he smashes and shakes the gambling table in front of him. Will this little guy, who appears to be a casino employee, be rattled by this outburst? I’m betting he’s one chill dude and he’ll just have someone dispatch with him quickly.

Whatever happens on Canto Bight, it clearly involves Finn. We had actually heard before, from Vanity Fair’s cover story on The Last Jedi, that Finn and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) have a mission that takes them to the casino city. What are they doing there, though? Well, one of Canto Bight’s customers might just be someone of interest.

We can’t be sure, but I have a feeling that this speeder is arriving at Canto Bight. It just gives off that vibe. It appears that General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) is in the speeder, all decked out in his finest officer gear. Notice how the speeder itself resembles the kind of long, luxury cars that Nazi officers used to drive around? Think about Red Skull’s car in Captain America: The First Avenger and you know what I’m talking about. He has someone in the car next to him, and it appears to be a woman with some kind of gaudy headpiece shooting out all over the place.

Here are some more speeders from the set, which may be from the Canto Bight sequence. They do look pretty sleek, like they would be owned by the super rich. But we’re not sure.

Whatever happens on Canto Bight doesn’t go very where for our heroes Finn and Rose. They appear to have gotten locked up. We’re assuming it’s from whatever happened at Canto Bight since Finn is wearing the same outfit he was in one of the above photos. You can’t see Kelly Marie Train because the camera guy is in front of her, but you can see her ponytail sticking out over the camera guy’s shoulder. Where have they been imprisoned though? Is it in Canto Bight itself or have they been taken prisoner by the First Order?
