It’s a mineral planet and so there are mines on it.” In many ways Crait shares many similarities with the ice planet of Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back. In the second part of the original trilogy, the Rebel Alliance is holed up in a base on a remote, inhospitable planet where a pitched battle breaks out. But unlike Hoth, it’s possible Crait is being occupied by both the First Order and the Resistance for its resources. Johnson’s mention of mines indicates the Rebellion once utilized the planet as part of their supply chain before abandoning the outpost.”
