HOLLYWOOD – Reports claim Star Wars: Episode 8: The Last Jedi to feature Tribbles.
An old Star Wars favorite the Tribbles are to make a return to the new Rian Johnson film: Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi.
The film stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher and Adam Driver.
A source close to the production told the Studio Exec:
Early in the production Rian introduced the idea of the Tribbles. It was something that JJ Abrams suggested, but Rian agreed completely. Initially, they were going to just have a small role, but they kinda multiplied if you know what I mean. Now they’ve become the dominant character. I don’t want to give too much away but there’s about five minutes of the film which is about Luke Skywalker and Rey. And the rest of it is Tribbles all the way through.
Is Chewbacca a kind of Tribble?
No. But the Tribbles worship him as a God.
Like in Return of the Jedi.
There weren’t any Tribbles in Return of the Jedi.
Right. Wait, aren’t Tribbles like a Star Trek thing?
Star Trek… Star Wars, what’s the difference?
