Behind the scenes of The Last Jedi with glimpses of Dubrovnik

Written by  Nov 20, 2017

A long-awaited American epic space saga film is on the horizon!

To the joy of all Star Wars fans around the world, the latest ‘’Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi’’ will hit the screens on the 15th of December 2017.

The latest episode of this globally popular blockbuster will also bring joy to all the fans in Croatia and especially to Dubrovnik which played a role of the casino city Canto Bight in ‘’The Last Jedi’’ film.

Canto Bight was a coastal city on the desert planet Cantonica. The city was a destination for wealthy individuals, and it was filled with casinos and racetracks. During the war between the Resistance and the First Order, Resistance members Finn and Rose Tico travelled to Canto Bight. The Canto Bight Police were the law enforcement of the city.

Canto Bight was created for ‘’Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi’’ and it was described by the director Rian Johnson as "a Star Wars Monte Carlo–type environment, a little James Bond–ish, a little To Catch a Thief’’.

The latest ‘’Star Wars: The Last Jedi- Behind the Scenes’’ video surely caught our eye. The video is very interesting and we spotted two images related to Dubrovnik – the image of the Old City and the image of the ‘’space horse’’ behind a railing obviously waiting for the next race.

All and all, we need to be patient a little longer until the Last Jedi swings his light saber on cinema screens across the world.
