‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ Have More in Common Than You Think
Lucasfilm just released a behind-the-scenes teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and we couldn’t help but notice something awfully familiar about the flashy casino city, Canto Bight. As it turns out, scenes in this intergalactic Vegas were shot in the Croatian seaside town of Dubrovnik, which is also where Game of Thrones films its King’s Landing scenes. Mind. Blown.
Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s director, confirmed that Canto Bight and Dubrovnik, Croatia, are one and the same in the teaser video titled “Worlds of The Last Jedi.”
Here’s King’s Landing.
And here’s Canto Bight.
We’re not sure what to do with this information, but we feel compelled to visit Dubrovnik with a lightsaber and a wine chalice.
