Canto Bight is a new planet to be explored in Rian Johnson's film, home to the elite and wealthy denizens of the Star Wars galaxy who hope to remain neutral in the conflict between the First Order and the Resistance.
The traitorous Stormtrooper known as Finn (John Boyega) travels to Canto Bight with his new ally, Resistance mechanic Rose Tico, after a tip from Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong'o). The former bartender puts Finn and Rose in contact with her mysterious contact named DJ (Benicio del Toro), who later helps them infiltrate the First Order on a dangerous mission.
It's not clear just how long their trip to Canto Bight lasts, but the behind-the-scenes footage from Disney's D23 Expo and Annie Liebovitz' photos from Vanity Fair have already revealed some of the strange new aliens fans will encounter.
Other set photos show Rose and Finn riding a "space horse," a new alien creature called fathiers, which are said to be high-dollar race horses for Canto Bight gamblers to bet on.
Perhaps this scene with Rose and Finn involves a daring escape of some kind, and the Canto Bight police are left to figure out what the hell is going on.
Whatever the deal is, the Canto Bight police have a surprisingly retro look to them, as far as Star Wars designs are concerned. The helmets look similar to AT-AT pilots or Tantive IV Rebel soldiers.
We'll find out if the Canto Bight police department gets their own Law & Order-esque jingle when Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in theaters on December 15.
