Captain Phasma is getting more screen time in The Last Jedi and that’s awesome


Get ready to see a lot more of the chromed out Captain Phasma when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters…

As The Last Jedi gets closer to its release date, fans are going to want to know if the stormtrooper donning the silver armor will get more screen time than she did in The Force Awakens. Well, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Anthony Brezican, not only is she getting more screen time, but her role will be much more impactful than the first time around.

Breznican asked director Rian Johnson out the actress behind the chrome, and the character she portrays.

"Gwendoline Christie is one of my favorite people, and you get to see her in action which I think is going to be fun That character is just so damn cool looking. Like, okay, let’s see what we can do with her. Let’s put her in action and see what happens."

With the release of The Last Jedi, we won’t be getting into the back story of Phasma (portrayed by Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie), but we will obviously be getting a better look at how she handles herself in battle, whether or not she is a good leader, and just how kick ass she can really be.

In the trailer, we get to see her leading an assault on a rebel base and thanks to actor John Boyega, we know she’ll face Finn in a one-on-one showdown.  She will probably be pretty upset considering the last time she saw Finn, he was shoving her down a trash compactor.

We are getting graced with a book and comic that will delve into the early years of the character. The novel Phasma by Delilah S. Dawson hits the shelves on September 1. The comic book called Captain Phasma will reveal how she escaped the trash compactor and got off Starkiller base before it blew up. That comic will hit shelves on September 6.
