One of the new characters to be introduced in this month’s Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma, and it looks as if this character is going to be more than a one-and-done type.
io9 reports that Phasma is going to be sticking around past Episode VII, with the outlet stating, “Kathleen Kennedy has big plans for Phasma and confirmed that the captain will carry on into the next movie. She’s an important character, a baddie in the best sense of the word.”
Kathleen Kennedy is the President of Lucasfilm and an integral part of the Star Wars saga from here on out, so she tends to get what she wants when it comes to a galaxy far, far away.
From what we know so far, Episode VII will see Captain Phasma tied to John Boyega’s Finn. Both characters are members of The First Order, but then Finn decides to go AWOL and leave the latest incarnation of The Empire as he ends up eventually falling in with the heroes of the film. As such, Christie’s Phasma sets out on a mission to bring in Finn. Whether she’s successful or not, Captain Phasma is seemingly going to be around for at least one more installment of the most famous saga in the galaxy.
