In Star Wars:The Last Jedi rebellion hides on planet Crait which was an old base of rebellion when they had conflicts with Darth Vader.

We can see this same planet in second installment of star wars franchise Empire Strikes Back but in that movie planet is just one icy planet but in The Last Jedi we can see red material hidden beneath icy surface which is reveal when some one walk on surface that is not the case in Empire Strikes Back.

Why this change happened to the planet?

    Except it wasn't ice, it was salt. This is literally said in the movie. – BCdotWEB Mar 20 '18 at 12:21

This is not the same planet as in Empire Strikes Back.

The planet in Star Wars: The Last Jedi is called Crait, but the planet shown in Episode V is called Hoth.

Though, both are different ones. Since the planet Crait is called old base of Rebel Alliance in the movie and Hoth was abandoned after the encounter between rebels and Darth Vader, I can understand the confusion here.

And the white substance on Crait is not ice, but salt.

Soldier: (tastes the soil) Salt!

  • I remembered that scene when soldier taste the soil and I thought that that material is salt mixed with some red material covered with ice – KDeogharkar Mar 21 '18 at 11:37
