Rian said that Toro’s character will have an important role in the battle between the First Order and the Resistance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

“I came into the film because of Rian Johnson, the director. He called me up and wanted to talk to me about a character. I knew his work, so just the fact that I’d get a chance to meet with a filmmaker like him, but then on top of that for a ‘Star Wars’ film, was interesting to me,” said the Sicario actor.

He added, “He didn’t say anything about what this character was. We talked about movies, my background, just casual. Then, I got the script. I read it, and the script is very cool. The character is also very cool.”

Apart from Benicio Del Toro, Star Wars: The Last Jedi also features Mark Hamill, late actress Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran and Laura Dern.
