Here Are the New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Characters
Ir's somewhat of a tradition for Star Wars toys to subtly reveal new Star Wars characters and give some plot hints about the next movie — in fact, one of the defenses for Rey not being featured in certain games for The Force Awakens was allegedly to prevent spoilers. So for this year's Force Friday reveal, we were hungrily awaiting bits of movie details the toys would give away. We're already psyched about the inclusion of more female characters, and we're pretty sure we know the droid everyone is going to be looking for, and we keep seeing more hints as more toys emerge. Here are some of the first looks at characters we've gotten for Star Wars: The Last Jedi since we just met Porgs in the latest trailer!
BB-9E is the dark side's answer to BB-8. BB-9E is described as "part of the astromech unit of the First Order that keep their starships and machinery operational."
Benicio Del Toro's character's name is supposedly not actually DJ, but it's what he's called on his Funko POP! figurine. This also serves as our first "look" at him.
OK, everyone is going to want a Porg. From the planet Ahch-To, these little creatures are kinda like the new Ewoks, and we're already obsessed. They were revealed in the lastest trailer too, so now everyone else is obsessed, too!
Paige is Rose's sister and was also revealed in the Vanity Fair piece; she'll be working with Poe Dameron and is played by Veronica Ngo.
The Star Wars: Rebels character will apparently be in The Last Jedi, as evidenced by her action figure, though the actress who voices her, Vanessa Marshall, doesn't appear on the cast list on IMDB yet.
Tallie is a Resistance pilot and comes with an A-Wing fighter. So far, there's no word on who is playing her in the movie.
