Warning: this article contains a potential spoiler for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Thanks to the folks over at MakingStarWars.net, we may have the first name of a new planet introduced in the upcoming eighth chapter of the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
If you’ve followed the production of The Last Jedi closely, you’ll remember the project shot on location last year in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Filming took place on Stradun, the historical centers main street, as well as on the beaches and just off the coast in the center of the port.
The site believes that the exterior scenes filmed in Dubrovnik were for a planet called “Canto Bright”. Up until now, the planet has been dubbed the “Casino Planet” because the exterior sets built on top of shop entrances on Stradun looked to be what could have been the entrance to a casino in the Star Wars universe.
Take this planet name with a grain of salt as MakingStarWars.net points out “Canto Bright” could be a codename for the planet itself. Nor has it been confirmed that this planet is host to a casino. But if Canto Bright is indeed the planets name and it does turn out to be host to a casino, fans of Star Wars: Bloodlines can kiss any hope of seeing the casino on Daxam IV in live-action goodbye.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15, 2017.
Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Star Wars: The Last Jedi as we learn it and be sure to check back during Star Wars Celebration Orlando for our live coverage of the event. The first teaser or possibly even the trailer is expected to drop during the panel for Star Wars: The Last Jedi on April 14 at 11 a.m. ET/PT.
‘Star Wars’: Just Who Could Be ‘The Last Jedi’?
Last month, Disney and Lucasfilm officially announced the title for the next “Skywalker Saga” Star Wars film. Episode VIII will be titled The Last Jedi. As soon as the announcement came, fans were both excited, and very interested. That’s a “cool” title, yet at the same time very vague. Even stars of the film, Mark Hamil and Daisy Ridley have been tight-lipped about what that could mean. The only response has been Hamil saying that it has a very “samurai” and “minimalist” vibe to it. Ridley only shared a meme on Facebook related to the announcement of the title.
So what does it mean? One theory is that for the new films, the titles will literally spell out a sentence summarizing the trilogy, which is interesting. The first film The Force Awakens, the next one The Last Jedi, the third…. so it could say that “The Force Awakens The Last Jedi (insert Episode 9 title).”
But we are curious as to who the last Jedi in Episode VIII could be. Of course, there are obvious answers, since the field of Jedi in the new trilogy is so limited. It’s not like the prequel trilogy where there were hundreds if not thousands of Jedi to pick and choose from.
So let’s take a look as see just who the Last Jedi could actually be. Click next to see who our choices are.
