Road To The Last Jedi: The Lure Of Canto Bight

 Since the Vanity Fair pictures were released I've been a bit obsessed with Canto Bight. Mostly it's because of this picture showing some fierce women of color:

Canto Bight has been described as the Monaco of the Star Wars Universe. It's a place of high stakes gambling and excess. This will also be the place where we meet Laura Dern's character Admiral Holdo:

I'm so excited to learn more about the Canto society, though we have seen the riches of Coruscant, it has mostly been through a political filter. With Canto Bight it seems we will meet a culture whose wealth possibly isolates them from the larger galactic events.

Merchandise is also showing us more of the Canto Bight, like this awesome Finn Pop in his Imperial disguise he wears while on Canto Bight and a look at the guards of the gilded city and the ships they drive:

And Last but not least is a book with 4 novellas giving readers a loot at some of the characters and their lives:

One of these characters is a massuse !

I'm so excited to learn more about this locale.
