Ten Bold Predictions for Star Wars: Episode VIII

2 of 10

9. Benicio Del Toro will be a new Sith or Dark Side villain

Benicio Del Toro has already confirmed his role in Star Wars: Episode VIII. He’s also said that his role is as a villain, and even hinted that his character will be strong in the Dark Side of the Force. Now, this could all be misdirection, but I don’t think so. I think that Snoke will need a new champion while Kylo is on the mend, and Benicio’s Sith-like character will be the big-bad of Episode VIII. He may even have some sort of guiding hand in Kylo’s training as a blind Force user…if in fact he is permanently blind.

Next: 8. Rey = the new, new hope
