Canto Bight is a new city being introduced in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” An excerpt from an upcoming book based on the franchise gives a closer look at what to expect. Meanwhile, a new poster of the film has been released online, showing a key action sequence on the planet Ahch-To.

The casino city is not just for the galaxy's rich and famous. There will be a few lucky people who will get to experience the fun there. An excerpt from the upcoming book “Rules of the Game” by Saladin Ahmed posted on Nerdist tells the story of Kedpin Shoklop and his trip to the city.

The book will reveal details of opulent buildings and the lifestyle in the casino city. It also details the kind of characters who dwell in Canto Bight. However, there are also shady deals that happen here.

The casino city may not be a big part of the plot in the upcoming film, but its visual spectacles can be a welcome distraction from the hectic pace of the main story. There may also be a good musical score to enjoy.

Meanwhile, a new poster of the upcoming film posted online (see below) shows a major action sequence on the planet Ahch-To. The First Order is already tracking the movements of the Resistance, and it looks like Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) will lead a strike force on the planet. There, he will duel against Rey (Daisy Ridley), the poster shows.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will be released on Dec. 14 in Australia. The film is directed by Rian Johnson. The plot will focus on what Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) has been doing on Ahch-To all this time, as well as the continuous war against the First Order.
