Betrayal at Cloud City to be exact. That is to say, the exact name of LEGO Cloud City is “75222 Betrayal at Cloud City”.

It looks like it recreates most if not all of the key scenes from that location. It’s got a carbon freezing chamber, a landing pad, a hallway, dining room, and that weird platform where Vader’s most famous line is said.
The things that caught my eye the most, though, are the Slave I and Cloud Car vehicles:
75222 Betrayal at Cloud City will be available on October 1st 2018 with VIP Early Acces starting a few weeks earlier on September 13th.
