Captain Phasma’s exit in The Force Awakens is one of the movie’s most questionable scenes. If you’ll recall, Finn, Han Solo, and Chewbacca dumped her into one of Starkiller Base’s trash chutes, and then destroyed the planet. It was an ignominious moment for Phasma, and one that Last Jedi director Rian Johnson nearly…
When Captain Phasma’s out in space hunting down deserters or polishing that impractically gorgeous armor, she’s usually aboard a First Order Star Destroyer or a Stormtrooper transport. When she’s here on earth though, she’s probably driving something like this wild Nissan Maxima.
There is nothing Star Wars canon loves more than relentlessly filling in the gaps between the movies. But sometimes there are pretty big questions left by the films that need explaining... like Marvel’s latest comic answering how Phasma survived being tossed in the garbage on the exploding Starkiller Base to appear in …
Next Friday isn’t just the day all the shiny new Last Jedi toys come out—it’s when the “Journey to The Last Jedi” begins, with a whole swathe of new books and comics ready to flesh out Star Wars canon... including the mysterious past of Captain Phasma.
This Force Friday, September 1, fans are finally going to learn something about Captain Phasma. That’s when Delilah S. Dawson’s new canon Star Wars novel, Phasma, is released. And to commemorate it, Del Ray Books just revealed three very mysterious and intriguing new characters.
The last time we saw the spectacularly armored Captain Phasma, she was about to be shoved into a trash compacter at the end of The Force Awakens. And while we’ve known for awhile that one of Star Wars’ best villains-you-love-to-hate would be back, now we’re gonna find out how she escaped.
It looks like Captain Phasma wasn’t crushed in a trash compactor. On the red carpet for the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, Gwendoline Christie confirmed that she would indeed be returning for Star Wars Episode VIII.
The armor is intimidating and awesome. The character, evil and mysterious. It’s no wonder Gwendoline Christie’s First Order stormtrooper Captain Phasma became a fan favorite long before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters next week.
We’ve heard for ages that Captain Phasma, the Star Wars villain played by Gwendoline Christie, was originally written as a man. We now know that’s true. Lawrence Kasdan told Vulture making Phasma a woman was a last-minute decision—but they never told Christie this.
We’re officially two weeks out from the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the last thing you probably want are spoilers, minor as they may be. Nevertheless, some new info about Captain Phasma has been revealed. Minor spoilers for The Force Awakens follow.
Look. It’s officially December. That means a) Christmas is just 24 days away, and b), Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a mere 17 days away. So treat yourself to the impossibly delightful Gwendoline Christie in an amazing Captain Phasma dress, wielding a blaster rifle like the goddamn boss of the Galaxy she is.
Okay, so we’ve not seen much of The Force Awakens’ Captain Phasma in action so far. But we know that a), she has amazing shiny armor, b) she’s played by Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, and c) she’s got a cool cape. In Star Wars, that’s more than enough badassery to earn you an action figure that looks awesome.
Force Friday, the massive marketing push of all the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise, is mere hours away—but the flood gates have already opened. Tons of new toys have leaked, there was a big official unboxing video, but this is by far the coolest thing yet.
The internet was barely trickling into most homes when Star Wars: The Phantom Menace arrived in theaters, so it was easy to keep all of the accompanying toys and collectibles under wraps. But as is apparent from these The Force Awakens figures popping on eBay, it won’t be so easy for Disney and Lucasfilm to keep…
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a few months away, but there’s less than a month until its Toys hit shelves across the world—and that means until then, toys will inevitably leak their way onto the internet before release. Here’s your guide to every leak so far, with rolling updates as and when they happen.
