New Details On Benicio Del Toro's 'Star Wars' Character Revealed

Lucasfilm  Disney

Leia proved to be an iconic, and in many ways, career-defining role for Fisher, and as a character who went from princess to spy to rebel fighter to senator and finally general of the Resistance, Leia was an important figure of female empowerment on the silver screen at a time when such characters were sadly often overlooked. But lest you think the new creature is filling the Han Solo-shaped hole in Chewie's heart, EW reports that while Porgs are cute and cuddly, they are "vexing to Wookies". In The Force Awakens he was still coming to grips with who he wanted to be. After leaving the First Order behind in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, John Boyega reveals in a new interview that, in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he's even ready to leave the Resistance behind as well. "When I was in 'Star Wars' there was a semi, kind of racial discussion that was quite negative when it first came out".

"Poe's arc is one of evolving from a heroic soldier to a seasoned leader, to see beyond the single-mindedness of winning the battle to the larger picture of the future of the galaxy", Isaac says.

A leaked photo featuring a LEGO toy set based on the highly-anticipated film shows Supreme Leader Snoke wearing his fancy gold robe standing in front of a hologram of none other than the scheming Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Emperor Palpatine also known as Darth Sidious.

It seems that "The Caretakers" won't be CGI-animated characters like the Porgs, but rather have actors in costume.

"The fact that Luke says [in the teaser], 'I only know one truth".

"That's the primary obstacle he has rejoining the world and his place in the Jedi hierarchy, you know?" Mysteriously codenamed "DJ" by the filmmakers, his character - a dangerous "man in black" type - has been the source of much speculation, most of which has been shot down by writer/director Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm. "They've been there for thousands of years, and they essentially keep up the structures on the island", Johnson explained. Hamill is no stranger to teasing Star Wars fans and has done so numerous times in the past.

"Poe is in some ways a surrogate son for Leia", Oscar Isaac told EW. "Now he's gone, and instead I'm with this grumpy guy on an island who doesn't want me here'".

Hamill's striking blue eyes pierce through the magazine as the actor gives a strong and stoic glance ahead. To add to this weight is the uncertainty of who he is now.
