Taken to life by Game of Thrones celebrity Gwendoline Christie, Captain Phasma quickly became a fan-favorite going after her unveiling within the Power Awakens, when the Superstar Wars community affectionately christened her personality as the “Stainless- Trooper.” A badass subject for a badass identity, if we do say so ourselves, even if Christie’s First Order Commander didn’t get a lot of screentime in J.J. Abrams’ franchise revival.
Fans may take solace though in the fact that Captain Phasma will be again, back, again for Superstar Wars: DAYS GONE BY Jedi, and not only will she gain, but evidently, she’ll get in on most of the action these times. At least, that’s relating to director Rian Johnson, who spoke with Entertainment Regular within the outlet’s Legend Wars blowout this week and acquired the following to say:
“Gwendoline Christie is one of my favorite people, and you can see her doing his thing which I think may very well be really fun. That persona is merely so damn cool looking. Like, okay, let’s see that which we can do with her. Let’s put her doing his thing and see what goes on.”
While that’s certainly attractive to hear, there’s another reason that Phasma followers are eagerly anticipating THE FINAL Jedi as well, and that is because the sequel is defined to explore her backstory a little more. Speaking in another interview a few weeks back, Christie touched system on that, declaring:
“Rian and I did so have long conversations about this personality and who she was, and I was absolutely delighted in how ready he was to listen to my ideas and really excited to change them with him and hear his. He’s a real grasp copy writer and director, and I think we’ve seen that in the videos that he’s made but Personally i think that people truly will see that in the depths to which he goes into The Last Jedi.”
Aimed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: THE LAST Jedi is likely to fly on Dec 15th. Other tasks gestating in that iconic galaxy significantly, a long way away include an untitled Han Solo origin profile – helmed by Ron Howard, it’s on course going to theatres on, may 25th, 2018 – and Super star Wars: Occurrence IX, the Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel that will herald the latest (and last?) section in the Skywalker saga come 2019
