Neon-Lit Casino Planet in 'The Last Jedi' Might Have a Name


Any potential meet-up with an older Lando Calrissian is definitely going to happen mid-hustle. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is rumored to have plenty of casino scenes, and, now, that casino world might just have a name. And Benicio Del Toro’s unknown Man in Black character just might have a home planet.

Making Star Wars, the popular Star Wars fan site, posted about what it’s calling the “Dubrovnik planet” on Tuesday, sharing a photo supposedly from the set of The Last Jedi and “revealing” what the site thinks is a new, casino-esque planet, the name of which has apparently been heard from several “quality sources” as Canto Bight.

As the post points out, Canto Bight would be the result of The Last Jedi’s rumored filming in Dubrovnik, Croatia, a 16th-Century city with a feel very different from any other location in Star Wars history. These connections have led to the conclusion that Canto Bight will possibly be a neon-lit, medieval-ish planet with a large city dedicated to gambling.

And since Del Toro’s character is still shadowed in mystery, it’s easy to assume a space-hustler type (the kind Del Toro is expected to play) would hang out on a neon-lit casino world. Maybe he hangs out there with Lando, and he’s an old buddy of Chewbacca’s from back in the day. Maybe that’s where the rumored new hacker character also hangs out. Maybe that’s where Rey will find her parents. Maybe Han Solo is hanging out there, still alive. The possibilities are endless, especially when dealing with rumors such as this.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in theaters December 15.
