“This character could come straight out of a Bob Dylan or Tom Waites song, or even a Dostoyevsky novel,” Del Toro tells 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.”

Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares to do battle with the First Order.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, and Domhnall Gleeson.

The film lands in theatres on December 15, 2017!
