Star Wars Time Show: Deep Dive Into Del Toro’s DJ and Dern’s Vice Admiral Holdo

In the latest episode of our Star Wars Time podcast show Nick and I take a deep dive into the Vanity Fair article from two weeks ago that offered up glimpses of the The Last Jedi’s production and characters, but more importantly it finally revealed who Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern are playing.

Del Toro is playing a seedy character who goes by DJ, although it’s clear that isn’t his real name, but rather a monicker his crew has given him, so there is still plenty of mystery behind his character. He’s definitely not good nor bad, so where his ultimate allegiances will fall are still up in the air. Laura Dern’s character on the other hand is clearly with the Resistance, as she is playing Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, so there’s a great chance she’ll be interacting with General Leia, Poe, and other Resistance leaders in The Last Jedi.

You can watch and listen above through YouTube, or you can listen in below through our web player and Stitcher player (may need time to let it update to newest episode). Finally, you can always subscribe to the show via one of the available platforms below.

May the Force be with you, always…
