We won't make you wait any longer. So, sorta like Luke's equivalent of Wilson, the volleyball from Castaway. Although many of the characters from that film return for The Last Jedi, one new character is DJ, played by Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro.
Twitter user Mr. Mondee is firmly on the anti-Porg side, calling them a "blatant" example of movie studio "money grabbing". To add to this weight is the uncertainty of who he is now. In this game, the player character, a former Jedi, comes across a series of people who just don't care about the lengthy history of wars between the Jedi and the Sith - they're out for personal survival, and that means ignoring the big galactic politics and the war between good and evil. It is suggested that we will finally know who Rey's parents are and more. "Like, it's not an easy process for some".
Entertainment Weekly debuted a picture of a Porg riding shotgun in what looks to be the Millennium Falcon next to Chewbacca. "For him, he's trying to benefit off of that- which doesn't make him the person you want to trust". Apparently, he flat-out doesn't want her there.
So what is such a shady character doing hanging out with Finn and Rose? Luke feels responsible for that.
"I think she sees in him the potential for a truly great leader of the Resistance and beyond", he says.
But, even though the film wasn't written as a farewell, director Rian Johnson says it will still have an emotional conclusion. As the leader of the Resistance, Leia has to deal with the loss of Han Solo and the repercussions of the devastating destruction of the Republic by the First Order. They have to be built to move, and you have to believe that they could step forward and engage if they have to.
Is Luke super bummed about Kylo Ren?
Kelly Marie Tran, however, shared a little bit more about DJ, or at least, spilled the details on what it's like working with Del Toro. I'll miss her energy. Unfortunately, that's not the case. "She's not royalty. She's someone who is just like everyone else".
