Star Wars Episode 8 News: Captain Phasma to Return

Captain Phasma episode 8Some substantial Star Wars Episode 8 news broke this morning, as we’ve learned that Gwendoline Christie will reprise her role as Captain Phasma in the film.

Christie made the announcement via People at the 2016 SAG Awards. She said, “I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I think that’s an exclusive, actually.”

It’s a noteworthy bit of news since we didn’t get to see a lot of Captain Phasma — one of the many strong female characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We noted in our Force Awakens review that we would have liked to have seen more Phasma, and we were especially disappointed that we didn’t get a look of who is behind the mask. We know that she’s the commander of The First Order’s legions of stormtroopers, but other than that, we don’t know much more about her. Hopefully, now that we know that she’s going to be in Episode VIII, we’ll get a little more information about her.

That’s all the updates we have for now, but we will, of course, keep you updated here at Nerd Much on all things Star Wars. For now, you can check out our list of all upcoming Star Wars movies and their release dates.
