Star Wars: The Last Jedi is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year, and Lucasfilm has been trying its best to keep important plot points and other film details from leaking out to the public. However, despite their efforts, rumors regarding the film continue to make their rounds online.
One of these rumors involves Benicio Del Toro and his unnamed character. Last week, speculation broke out that the award-winning Puerto Rican actor was actually going to play the recently canonized Star Wars Legends character Grand Admiral Thrawn in the upcoming Star Wars saga installment.
However, according to a new report by Making Star Wars (via Screen Rant), del Toro won't be playing Thrawn in the film. Instead, del Toro is to play a character named DJ, a figure who looks like a person from the shadier segments of the galaxy with his all-black get up, trench coat and a belt for his blaster. Described to be "slimy and dirty" with short hair and a "bill-less cap," del Toro's character seems to match up with previous rumors saying that the actor was playing the role of a character who didn't seem to be on the side of the First Order, or the Resistance.
The site also describes DJ's ship, a clean hybrid of Queen Amidala's ship from The Phantom Menace with the interior of Kelvin Timeline's Enterprise. Does this mean that DJ is a smuggler? Or is he a space bandit of some sorts? We'll have to wait to find out.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres on December 15, 2017.
