Ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ release, concept art and major plot details all found their way online. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, however, hasn’t suffered from anywhere near the same amount of leaks, and outside of a few set photos, we’ve seen literally nothing from the highly anticipated release.
That all looks set to change in April, but in the meantime, a new report has seemingly shed some light on at least one of the new planets we’ll be paying a visit to in the movie. Apparently, Star Wars: The Last Jedi looks set to take us to a number of locations, including “the greens of Ahch-To, a Dubrovnik/casino planet, a planet described to us as ‘Mars with snow on it,’ and the interiors and exteriors of spaceships.” Most of those were to be expected, but there’s one in particular which Making Star Wars highlights as being especially notable.
The planet compared to Mars is described as follows:
“The way I heard the set described, it was like Mars, a red ground, but covered with a light layer of snow, especially on the banks and rim of a hallway-sized trench. So imagine “Mars if it lightly snowed” is the mantra for this place. We heard the interiors were not unlike Starkiller Base in the sense that you can see the Death Star-style tech and architecture blending in with the rocks and natural environment.”
The site goes on to speculate that this is probably the new home of The First Order and quite possibly where Supreme Leader Snoke has been hiding out. If so, the colours make perfect sense, and with Luke and Rey spending time on the blue and green Ahch-To, Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s villains being holed up on a planet which is red and white would make for an apt visual.
Disney and Lucasfilm are taking their time with Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s marketing campaign, so we may have to wait a while before we hear anymore about this, but as of now, we’re definitely intrigued.
