Rumor: Details About Benicio Del Toro's Role in 'The Last Jedi'

By: Dominic Jones

We're just over a week away from our first real look at Star Wars: Episode VII The Last Jedi, but for those who can't wait here is a little tidbit about the movie, by way of our friends over at  The news relates to the character played by Benecio Del Toro in the upcoming film.  As usual, there is a chance this may not be true, but if you are trying to avoid all The Last Jedi spoilers then stop reading now.  This is your SPOILER ALERT!

"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."

But there's more.  MSW continues,
"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 Trek films 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."

It is believed that we will encounter "D.J." on the planet Canto Bight (the Dubrovnik, Casino planet) and there may be some interaction between him, Finn, Kelly Marie Tran's character, and Justin Theroux' character.  He may also have something to do with the Canto Blight Police Department who were spotted in the set pictures from Dubrovnik.
