RUMOR: Details On Benicio Del Toro’s Role & Ship In ‘The Last Jedi’

RUMOR: Details on Benicio's Del Toro's character and ship in Rian Johnson's 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' may have been revealed.


Star Wars: The Last Jedi will reunite fans with fan-favorite characters such as Rey, Finn, Luke and Leia, but it will also introduce to a brand new cast of characters. One of the those new additions will be Benicio Del Toro, whose mysterious role has been kept under wraps, prompting questions over whether the character is a friend or foe to our heroes. Now, MakingStarWars.net is reporting possible details on Del Toro’s role and the character’s ship, which may offer contrasting insights into the new addition to the cast.

MakingStarWars.net wrote a detailed description of the character:

He is either named D.J. or it is his code name used by the production. He wears all black. He has a trench coat on with a Han Solo-style belt at his waist to hold his blaster. His hair is short. He also has a strange cap that doesn’t have a bill to it. He looks slimy and dirty but the bill-less cap makes him look sort of like a throwback to a different era. He belongs in the criminal underworld by the looks of him. The man in black-style character we heard about is certainly there but his style evokes a few things in the design.

MakingStarWars.net also provided information on the character’s ship, which is allegedly more fancy than the character’s appearance might suggest.

His ship is really fancy. The interior looks like something you would see from Canto Bight. It looks like if someone took the J.J. Abrams Star Trekfilms and designed the interior of the Falcon for a new Trek film. The cockpit has a very nice singular red seat for him to pilot from. In the back of the ship, it has a communal section like the Falcon where a crew could sit and socialize. But instead of dingy white seats and a chess board it has a very nice bright curved blue booth with a table (no word on a chess board) and it looks more like a nice hotel than something Han Solo would live in.

If correct, it certainly sounds like Del Toro will be playing a character with many sides, possibly making his allegiances in The Last Jedi more difficult to deduce. What do you think of Del Toro’s role? Is his character friend or foe? Share your thoughts below!

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie and Andy Serkis.
