Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Benicio del Toro Star Wars Character

Yesterday, Star Wars fans flocked to all sorts of retailers to get their hands on the first merchandise from Star Wars: The Last Jedi for the Force Friday II celebration across the world. We featured a whole list of the coolest toys you could get in stores yesterday, and one of those toys has revealed an interesting detail about a certain character who has been shrouded in secrecy.

Benicio del Toro has been said to play a character referred to as “DJ” by director Rian Johnson and the crew. However, Johnson has also indicated that “DJ” is not the character’s actual name. Thanks to a Funko POP Vinyl figure that was released on Force Friday II, we now know what those initials stand for. Find out what we learned about the Benicio del Toro Star Wars character below.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Trading Cards

It’s Force Friday II, meaning everything related to Star Wars is getting a huge push today as the first merchandise from Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits shelves. While director Rian Johnson has indicated that all the merchandise hitting shelves doesn’t contain any spoilers fans should be worried about, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some interesting details to be gleaned in other areas.

In honor of Force Friday II, the Star Wars Card Trader app from Topps released a new batch of Star Wars: The Last Jedi cards, and while most of them are simply cool images of characters, there is something of note that appears in one of them. More importantly, and perhaps slightly spoilery, another set of cards from the tangible Topps collectible Star Wars gives some vague indications of certain story elements from The Last Jedi.

Porg merchandise

The Ewoks made their play for cutest creatures in the Star Wars galaxy in Return of the Jedi, but Star Wars: The Last Jedi will introduce a new species that gives the ferocious cub-like critters a run for their money. Porgs, the cuddly new penguin-esque creatures that are native to the island of Ahch-To, are the hot new shit in Star Wars-ville, and a cursory glance through social media shows that people are going nuts for these little things.

So here at /Film, we’ve taken on the Very Important Task of rounding up all of the porg-related merchandise that has emerged from Force Friday II, the day in which a ton of new Star Wars toys and products are unleashed upon the world. Wha–what’s that? Why, no, nothing else going on in the world right now could possibly be more crucial or relevant than this. I’m glad we agree on that!

Star Wars The Last Jedi - Executioner Stormtrooper

We’re about to get an onslaught of Star Wars: The Last Jedi goods thanks to the arrival of Force Friday II on September 1. The celebratory day will see the first merchandise from the Star Wars sequel hitting shelves, including action figures, LEGO sets, books, shirts, stickers and more. One of those toys hitting shelves on Friday has provided insight into one of the new characters we’ll see: a new kind of First Order Stormtrooper.

Throughout our constant updates regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we’ve heard about a new First Order Stormtrooper referred to as The Executioner. We first heard about this Stormtrooper back in October, and since then we’ve actually seen them in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi sizzle reel (as seen in the image above). However, what we didn’t know was what this division of Stormtroopers was tasked with doing, especially with that lethal new clawed staff. But now we know more about the Executioner Stormtrooper, including their official name.

Get the details below, but beware of possible spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Read More »
