Rumor: Benicio Del Toro’s Character is a Fett
Rumors are swirling regarding the identity of Benicio Del Toro‘s character for the upcoming Star Wars movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi and its got ties to an old-school, fan-favorite character.
We’re sourcing this rumor from Youtuber Mike Zeroh who claims that Del Toro will be playing the role of Vikrum Fett.
YouTuber Mike Zeroh may have found the answer. In a new video, he points out that del Toro was listed on wikiwand.com as playing Vikrum Fett. This was later changed to saying his role was TBA, but it’s already sparked the possibility that the Puerto Rican actor is playing the son of iconic original trilogy villain Boba Fett.
Of course we need to take this with a grain of salt as this is something that we cannot confirm nor deny until Lucasfilm releases the first trailer to Star Wars: The Last Jedi; something that’s also due in a few months from now.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit theaters on December 15th, 2017.
