Luke Skywalker fans found themselves disappointed with The Force Awakens, as the character only appears in the film's final moments. The teaser for the next installment, The Last Jedi, mostly only shows the Jedi on the remote island of Ahch-To, but Mark Hamill might have just revealed his character will head to the Monte Carlo-esque destination of Canto Bight in an interview with GQ.
"The ones that are further away from people in costumes are the most fascinating," Hamill explained of the series' creature effects. "Those puppeteers are just amazing. There's a scene in Episode IX where, it'll blow your mind. I don't think I've ever been on a set that opulent in my life."
He continued, "There were 150 extras, wardrobe, makeup, prosthetics, puppets. I'm not giving anything away, because [writer/director] Rian [Johnson] talked about a casino, and that's what this is. Michael Kaplan designed all the wardrobe and variations of black and white and it was just breathtaking. You think, 'Jeez, this set alone could probably finance about 30 low budget features.'"
One interpretation of his comments are that Hamill merely visited the set while scenes were being filmed of Canto Bight. However, given the complicated nature of film shoots, it could reveal the character has scenes that take place there. With how drastically different many of the locations Hamill's character has been seen in, picturing the character in a busy, bustling casino-like environment would be a shocking place for a Jedi who's chosen isolation.
Of the location, Johnson referred to it as "a Star Wars Monte Carlo–type environment, a little James Bond–ish, a little To Catch a Thief." He added, "It was an interesting challenge, portraying luxury and wealth in this universe."
As some of the locations featured in the teaser for The Last Jedi appeared to be bleak and desolate, the filmmaker wanted to offer a different interpretation of the galaxy, explaining, "I was thinking, O.K., let's go ultra-glamour. Let's create a playground, basically, for rich a**holes."
We'll find out exactly how much time Luke spends at the destination when The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15.
