Last Jedi Phasma

Captain Phasma became instantly iconic in the lead up-to The Force Awakens, but many fans thought that she was criminally underused. Although she appeared to fall to a grisly doom in The Last Jedi, many have speculated on her possible return, including Christie herself. “In truth, I don’t know. And that scares and upsets me because I really want to see this character explored. I’m actually very invested in the character now. And that’s genuine. That’s not just chat. It has opened up a chain of stories and events in my mind about who Phasma is,” Christie explained to The Times.

One of the most beloved parts of Star Wars canon was the Expanded Universe, an often esoteric world filled with a compelling cast. The books, video games, and comics that crafted a universe outside of the movies were sadly de-canonized after the Disney takeover. Slowly but surely, some of the characters we know and love have been returning to the screen, and as Leland Chee of the Lucasfilm story group has hinted, this might just be the beginning of an Expanded Universe resurgence.

Star Wars is known for its creatures, costumes, and character work…and also its cameos. In a recent interview with Graham Norton, Simon Pegg opened up about his role in The Force Awakens as the evil junkyard owner Unkar Plutt. Unsurprisingly, it was very sweaty for Shaun of the Dead under all those prostheses.
