Video: Benicio del Toro discusses Star Wars: Episode VIII and Rian Johnson’s influence.
Benicio del Toro discusses Star Wars’ influence on him in this video interview he conducted with Empire. In it, del Toro talks about his love for vintage lobby cards and how he thinks Rian Johnson will bring a classic science fiction vibe into Star Wars and infuse it with some freshness:
We still don’t officially have confirmation that del Toro is in Rian Johnson’s follow up to the The Force Awakens at this time. It seems more likely than not he is in fact in the new film.
