Crait was a mineral planet located in a remote, uncharted section of the galaxy. Covered with white salt over its red-colored surface, the planet once hosted a Rebel Alliance outpost during their early rebellion against the Galactic Empire. Many years later, Crait was the location of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order.

DescriptionEdit

Crait was an uncharted planet in a remote corner of the galaxy,[2] which orbited at least one star.[1] The planet was rich in minerals—such as the white dusting of salt covering its surface, and the red-colored mineral base underneath—and hosted mines to extract these resources. The dragging stabilizer of a speeder could rip up the scorched surface into red plumes of ash.[2]

HistoryEdit

During the early rebellion against the Empire, the Alliance to Restore the Republic had an outpost on Crait, until its abandonment prior to the Battle of Scarif in 0 BBY.[3] Many years later, some time after the destruction of the First Order's Starkiller Base in 34 ABY,[4] Crait was the site of a battle which involved at least several Resistance speeders[2][1] against the First Order Heavy Assault Walkers.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

"It's way out there. It's very remote. It's uncharted. It's a mineral planet and so there are mines on it."
―Rian Johnson[src]

Crait was created and developed for Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi,[2] the upcoming eighth film in the Star Wars saga, which is scheduled for release on December 15, 2017.[6] The planet was first mentioned in Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide,[3] a reference guide for the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, written by Pablo Hidalgo and released on December 16, 2016.[7]

First footage of Crait was revealed in the very first teaser trailer for The Last Jedi,[1] which premiered during The Last Jedi panel at Celebration Orlando on April 14, 2017.[8] The real-world location for Crait was Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat located in Bolivia.[9] According to the film's writer and director Rian Johnson, Crait will "play a key role in the movie."[2]

Crait will also be included in Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, Disney's simulator ride theme park attraction. Anthony Daniels reprised his role as C-3PO for the new sequence, which was recorded in early May 2017.[10][11]
