The details just keep flowing from EW’s major cover story on “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” with the newest article revealing details about Benicio del Toro’s mysterious character known as ‘DJ’.
All that we know before now are his initials, that he’s neither a hero or villain, and that he’ll be in scenes set in the casino city of Canto Bight.
Actor John Boyega says his character of Finn and Kelly Marie Tran’s mechanic character Rose Tico will, on a mission to the city, encounter DJ:
“We just need a codebreaker and he’s the best in the galaxy. Unfortunately, he’s very dodgy and only in it for financial gain. He doesn’t fight for any side. He has distinct opinions. The Resistance bombs the First Order one day, the First Order bombs the Resistance on another. It’s an ongoing war that will never end. For him, he’s trying to benefit off of that – which doesn’t make him the person you want to trust.”
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens on December 15th.
