Empire Magazine has revealed a new image from Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The new picture shows Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) in the casino city Canto Bight. Unlike most of the previous Star Wars locations, Canto Bight displays a luxurious spot in the galaxy. According to Empire, this Finn and Rose find themselves on a “vital” mission among some of the galaxy’s most high profile individuals.

“I wanted a new environment that was like dunking your head in a cool bath of water, right in the middle of the movie,” Johnson tells Empire. “Apart from the prequels, all the touchstones that make something feel like Star Wars have to do with griminess and dirt. I wanted to do something completely different.”

Johnson also discusses what it was like to join a franchise like Star Wars, saying that the entire trilogy wasn’t already planned when he joined the project.

“The perception of these films is that they’re all planned out on a secret sheet of paper in advance, but that’s just not the case,” he says. “I wasn’t given an outline of where it goes or even a list of things to hit. It really was just, ‘Okay, what’s next?’”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi lands in theatres on December 14, 2017!
