Who is Benicio del Toro playing in The Last Jedi? We got some more hints and a couple of reveals about his character thanks to Part 6 of the big Fall 2017 Movie Preview cover story in Entertainment Weekly.
The Last Jedi‘s “DJ” is a “slicer” – the Star Wars version of a hacker – and in today’s podcast, I’m going over what more we’ve learned about him, as well as a theory about what his purpose in the movie is. Plus, I’ll consider the possibility of whether he could be a specific character we’ve already met in the new Star Wars canon. No, not thrawn, not Ezra Bridger, and not Snoke. (I think it unlikely he’s this other character, but there’s enough circumstantial evidence to make a conspiracy theorist happy…)
