New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Reveals First Footage of Casino City Canto Bight
Star Wars: The Last Jedi finally arrives in theaters next week, and a new international trailer has landed. Although it uses many of the shots we've seen in previous trailers over the past few weeks, it does include some exciting new footage, including a first look at the movie's casino city, Canto Bight.
The footage in question occurs around the two minute mark and reveals what appears to be a stampede of creatures through the casino. In addition, there are new shots of the battle on the planet Crait immediately after this, as Resistance fighters are bombarded in their trenches by First Order TIE Fighters. Check it out below:
The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15 and stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, and Andy Serkis. There has been plenty of promotional activity for the movie over past couple of weeks, including a TV spot in which Chewie smacks a Porg, and another that focuses on Luke's relationship with Rey. The movie won't spend a lot of time on the big death from the last movie but will explore another relationship, that of Finn and Poe. For more, check out our The Last Jedi review.
Last week saw the release of a new video of Ridley, who plays Rey in the movie, training to use a lightsaber. Ridley has also revealed that she plans to leave the series after Episode IX in 2019. "I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films," she said. "So in my head, it's three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out."
In related news, it was revealed last month week that director Rian Johnson will write and direct a new Star Wars trilogy. Work on the next set of movies will begin after the release of JJ Abrams' Episode IX in 2019. In addition, Disney is planning a live-action Star Wars TV show, which will be available on its upcoming streaming service.
