Empire Shares New Image of DJ from The Last Jedi

Empire magazine continues to share new images from their special The Last Jedi issue due for release today. In the preview we posted a few days ago we glimpsed a new shot of DJ from the movie. Now the British magazine shared the high quality of this image, plus a few words from Benicio Del Toro about the mysterious “underworld slicer”.



From Empire:

“This character could come straight out of a Bob Dylan or Tom Waites song, or even a Dostoyevsky novel,” says Del Toro in the new issue of Empire. “He’s like something out of Dickens; there have been characters like him in all kinds of literature.”

“He’s like a knife: if you grab him by the blade, he’ll cut you. If you grab him by the handle, he can be very, very useful.”



You can read the full interview with Del Toro in the January issue of Empire, on sale tomorrow November 30.

    Is he missing a right hand?

      Well he is a “slicer.”

      Looks like it, but I think that’s just an optical illusion with him holding the back of the couch he’s on

    His name in the movie is “Mack the Knife”.

    Hah! Good one, Del Toro. Slicer. Knife. I see what you did there.

    I already love this character. Del Toro is a master at portraying shady/sneaky characters, can’t wait.

    Anything out of a bob Dylan song is good. That’s a interesting comparison. I hope he’s a cool rogue type. Need more of that in this new trilogy. I was still hoping for some kind of cameo of boba fett. Then they can really compare it to empire strikes back.

    I’m getting a very Nubian feel from the ship they use with DJ.
