Cinema 3 June, 2017

Canto Bight is part of the new planets that will appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But in what way is it important for the very universe of the saga?
It is not because the First Order establishes its authority through force through the galaxy that the privileged must make a cross on their way of life! Proof with Canto Bight, the new planet casino that will unveil itself in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and its rather colorful human and extraterrestrial fauna. For this world is rather of the rich and very rich kind, so far from the deserts of Tatooine and Jakku or the icy expanses of Hoth. In fact, with Coruscant, Canto Bight is probably the first planet of its kind that we will have the opportunity to visit. And be careful, meltynauts, the trip is likely to be quite exotic! Apparently, the inhabitants of this Las Vegas of space live away from the struggles that shake the galaxy , Far from the problems of Rey, Finn and the rest of our heroes, forgetting the global situation and the threatening presence of the First Order. And this is what, according to Pablo Hidalgo, writer and screenwriter of LucasFilm, makes Canto Bight so important. And so interesting.
In an interview, the author gave some details about the planet, explaining: ” We will see in Star Wars: The Last Jedi that some people have managed to build a way of life by which they can exist at They have found a way to live above or beyond that, they belong to a class of rich people who have managed to establish all sorts of loopholes to ensure that they will survive , And even prosper, no matter what happens outside. ” Are the inhabitants of Canto Bight all a band of dirty egoists? If that’s what you think, know that you are not the only ones since Rian Johnson rightly qualifies the planet as ” Recreation courses for wealthy people . “At least, it has the merit of being clear!
But beyond the self-centeredness of its inhabitants, Canto Bight also represents a neutral playing field where no one takes part in the conflict and prefers to live his life as a recluse , far from the worries that occupy the spirit of the Resistance. And in itself, it is rather innovative. Until now, we have hardly seen any characters choosing to stay away from the struggle between the dark side and the luminous side. Even Han Solo, who could have represented this form of neutrality for a while, ended up joining a camp. It will be interesting to see what Canto Bight people can bring to the universe of Star Wars and, above all, to the intrigue of this new trilogy. After all, everything is never all black or white and, In addition to Rey who could bring balance in the Force in Star Wars: The Last Jedi , the rich players of the planet could also offer a new vision of the conflict. As cynical and selfish as they are! Are you eager to discover this new planet?
