Rumor: Details On New Planet From ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Making Star Wars has received some possible details regarding a brand new planet that is set to appear in this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Read an excerpt of the outlet’s article below.

“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 planet is likely a First Order-controlled world and it is hard to not speculate that this is where Hux, Phasma, and Kylo Ren meet up with Supreme Leader Snoke after their failure in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  The on-set ships for this world also make us lean towards this world being the secret base of the First Order, but that’s just a slightly informed guess. We also were able to pinpoint a “Snowtrooper General” on this set as well for a scene description that somewhat matches what came out of Bolivia recently.”

With no firm details on anything related to the new Star Wars film, fans are clamoring for any details they can uncover.
