Gwendoline Christie and Rian Johnson Came Up With Captain Phasma’s Backstory.

During the development of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Captain Phasma was originally a rejected design for Kylo Ren that they liked enough to build a separate character around the suit of armor. Unfortunately, that last-minute addition showed when the character was only utilized in the movie for two minutes worth of screentime – including the scenes where she’s just standing in the background on Starkiller Base as an accessory to General Hux’s rally. But since she’s alive and well for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Phasma’s really been fleshed out as a character – both by her actress Gwendoline Christie and director Rian Johnson, who contributed to her as-of-yet unrevealed backstory.



For those who were disappointed by Phasma’s lack of a presence in The Force AwakensThe Last Jedi is looking to rectify that problem by giving the character a much larger role. It’s certainly no coincidence that Phasma will be getting a novel and a comic book miniseries that covers her backstory and what she was up to between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi respectively – but what’s really interesting is what the Christie revealed about her character in a recent interview with IGN. As it turns out, both the actress and the director of the film contributed to fleshing out Phasma as a character in a way that has officially affected her canonical backstory:


“Rian and I did have long conversations about this character and who she was, and I was utterly delighted in how willing he was to listen to my ideas and really thrilled to exchange them with him and hear his. He really is a master writer and director, and I think we’ve seen that in the films that he’s made but I think that we truly will see that in the depths to which he goes in The Last Jedi.”



It’s been heavily implied that in The Last Jedi, Phasma will actually get to show why she’s so feared as an enforcer of the First Order, even after previously being relegated to being the recipient of a wookiee tackle that soon leads her to doom her entire military base to save her own skin. More importantly, there have been more than a few hints that she will come to blows with her former pupil FN-2187 (or, as we know him, Finn) from John Boyega himself. Christie also noted that she’s looking forward to seeing how her character’s role will expand across the franchise beyond the movies:


“It fascinates me to be involved in something that also resonates in other incarnations of books or of merchandise, whatever it is, because people are connecting with the material that’s outside just literally watching it. They’re connecting with it in a way that’s tactile, that’s in their lives, that stimulates different parts of their brain, different part of their soul.”


Hopefully, Phasma will really get to grow into a character that resonates with the fandom the second time around. We’ll be sure to find out when the media blitz for The Last Jedi begins in earnest.

      So great. Obviously some folks here who don’t watch GOT.

  • July 30, 2017 at 11:15 pm

    I still don’t know how they’re going to explain how she got out of the trash compactor and off the planet before it blew. Actually we need a plausible explanation for Kylo’s escape too.

    • July 30, 2017 at 11:38 pm

      Easy: she got out and escaped before it blew.

    • July 30, 2017 at 11:40 pm

      The new Phasma comic (just 5 issues) is supposed to explain how she escaped Star Killer base + set up her up for where she is in TLJ.
      From preview panels, it seems like she simple blast through the trash compactor walls.
      And if you ask me, I would guess she will be sent by Hux to get Kylo.

      • July 31, 2017 at 2:45 am

        they don’t make trash compactors like they used to.

      • July 31, 2017 at 7:06 pm

        As long as it is referenced in the movie, that will be fine. I love SWs and I do think the NC is fairly decent, but if LF’s intent was to rid the old Legends continuity for better connectivity, then actually showcase it. Because, there are fans of just the movies. They shouldn’t be burdened to look up the material like homework.

    • July 31, 2017 at 12:12 am

      She got out. Why does is need to be explained?

    • July 31, 2017 at 12:33 am

      I think Kylo’s escape was explained in the novelization. He had some sort of tracker on his belt that Hux used to find him and take him to a ship

    • July 31, 2017 at 2:44 am

      These sort of things don’t need explaining really. It’s not a documentary, that we didn’t ‘see’ them die on screen is sufficient for movie purposes to have them pop up again in the next installment with little or no explanation.

    • July 31, 2017 at 5:25 am

      You’ll get none! They just told you they didn’t even have a back story. They’ve admitted at least twice that they’re making it up as they go along. That’s why they can’t tell you Rey’s back story, because they don’t even know it.

    • July 31, 2017 at 6:30 pm

      Han asking if there was a trash compactor does not necessarily mean they ended up putting her in one. We don’t know what happened.

      • July 31, 2017 at 7:31 pm

        I think Pablo said they did throw her in?

        • July 31, 2017 at 7:52 pm

          Yeah, I guess you’re right. I found this quote:

          “Hidalgo also commented on her new weapon: “[It] doesn’t have a fancy name yet. Unlike the weapons we’re used to seeing in Star Wars — lightsabers and blasters — Phasma’s accessory is a retractable pole arm that collapses into a smaller, easy to carry form should she ever find herself shoved down a trash compactor again.””

          • August 1, 2017 at 1:48 pm

            I just hope it is explained. Those who just watch the movies and don’t pay attention to anything else are going to wonder how she just shows up in 8

          • August 2, 2017 at 1:58 am

            Personally, after watching the movie, I was comvinced she’s done…

  • July 31, 2017 at 1:16 am

    Sounds like damage control to me…….how can we make this character relevant and cool after the TFA botch up.

    • July 31, 2017 at 3:16 am

      Underwhelming? Yes. Damaging to the film? Hardly.

      • July 31, 2017 at 10:17 am

        No I meant damage to the character, not the film.

    • July 31, 2017 at 3:54 am

      As I mentioned before, Phasma was an unused character design for Kylo Ren that they found a way to repurpose into the film. She was never meant to be a major player in the plot of TFA, and originally her role was going to go to a handful of generic First Order officers and Stormtroopers as opposed to her. While I felt Phasma could have left a better impression, the intent as I understood it was to make the character have a larger role in the sequels to begin with.

    ZOMG WE FINALLY HAVE A BACKSTORY FOR LITERALLY THE MOST BORING VILLAIN IN SW HISTORY!!!!! I am elated beyond measure and life has forever changed ! My hands quiver as I anticipate the Phasma COMIC & GRAPHIC NOVELS so I can immerse myself in the CHROME-legacy! YES Gwendolyn, we are moved and your marching around aimlessly in that outfit “stimulates different parts of their brain, different parts of their soul.”

      • July 31, 2017 at 3:32 am

        Not liking the snore-fest named Phasma is not ground for “banning” LOL.
        I love plenty of SW villains, particularly HUX (amazing performances, dialogue-delivery and feels “Star Wars”), Kylo Ren, Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader, and Grand Moff Tarkin. Phasma sucks and is literally nothing more than a shiney-Stormtrooper uniform.

        • July 31, 2017 at 3:57 am

          It’s okay to not like Phasma, personally I’m not a huge fan of her either. However, spewing negativity on pretty much every single thread on this website is not okay.
          It’s not just Phasma you dislike, but you’ve clearly stated your hatred for TFA as a movie on here several times aswell.

          • July 31, 2017 at 3:59 am

            I absolutely have not. I *LOVE* TFA so I think you have me confused with someone else. I have applauded TFA since even before it’s release as more than a Film, it was a RESTORATION in fan-faith for the SW-Franchise in general. My main quip of TFA is that DELETED the moment when Rey saw Luke fighting Vader in Bespin during her “Forceback” moment — which would have been such a shocking, and highly-emotional-engaging moment. Jaws would have dropped and tears would have been shed. Moment wasted on the editing floor.

          • July 31, 2017 at 7:00 am

            Don’t worry, not everyone here has the mental capacity and emotional stability of an 8-year-old. There are some of us who relish hearing strongly-worded opinions, because a true fan cares enough to develop and voice strong opinions. Keep ’em coming!

          • July 31, 2017 at 7:11 am

            Isn’t it funny how some people equate banning as having an opposite viewpoint. If that isn’t the definition of censorship/ a safe space, then I do not know what is. But I guess it is easy to live in the tribe and not comprehend nuance and complex thinking.

            Because, yeah all SWs fan come to like or dislike the franchise in the exact same way, right? My sarcasm aside, thank you for calling him out and being reasonable.

            it is people like yourself that make me appreciate this website all the more. 🙂

          • July 31, 2017 at 3:55 pm

            I wish to clarify that it’s not the opinions per say that upsets me, as everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It’s the over the top, CAPS LOCKED comments full of !!!!!!!!, that come off as ridiculing everything that’s star wars to me. I completely agree that everyone should be allowed to share an opinion, but it’s possible to do so without ALWAYS stating your opinion as a ridicule of that topic by using caps lock, over the top irony and multiple exclamation marks after every sentence (see the irony in this comment).

          • July 31, 2017 at 7:22 am

            Much respect to you ! The Force is strong with you.

            Kent, while I don’t agree with you in every case, I will fight for your freedom to speak freely. It is always healthy and refreshing to hear different opinions. This site would be boring with everyone posting how everything is supercool, great, awesome, fantastic….. True fan doesn’t mean a blind worshipper. We love and we hate, but we stay fanboys

          • July 31, 2017 at 3:40 pm

            That Bespin scene where Rey saw Luke and Vader fighting was not edited. It was never shot. The idea was scrapped in pre-production.

          • July 31, 2017 at 10:16 pm

            MSW said the Bespin scene was indeed filmed — is this not the case? This moment is also in the TFA novelization. VERY bizarre that such a breath-taking moment was not utilized.

      • July 31, 2017 at 4:51 am

        I agree some of Kent’s replies can be a little bit “over the top”, but to me that’s just the sign of someone really passionate about Star Wars.

        Besides, what’s the point in banning someone? They always find a way back.

  • July 31, 2017 at 5:22 am

    See this is the reason why fans are turning on Star Wars. They have no freaking idea what they are doing. Everything is just to sell merch.

    • July 31, 2017 at 5:48 am

      They didn’t originally plan to explore the character of Phasma. They created a backstory, and will now tell it.

      How is that something to complain about?

      • July 31, 2017 at 7:31 am

        I get the concerns.

        A few examples of story affected by marketing/sales/lack-of-planning:

        It’s like Disney went “Ooh, they liked the shiny mirror stormtrooper, lets shoe-horn her into Ep8 & expand her role”.
        Poe was originally going to die in Ep7 but JJ left him around, now we’ve got extra cast.
        DIsney’s desperate to break into Chinese market(s) with Star Wars (see casting of Rogue1…which, mind you, I really liked Baze&Chirrut), so we get Asian actors (Finn love interest?) added to cast.

        Ep7 was already an over-crowded ensemble cast.
        Ep8, whilst down one old dead mentor character, seems to be adding more characters/story elements based not on what necessarily serves an over-arching story but the whims of the marketing/sales depts.

        • July 31, 2017 at 7:35 am

          “DIsney’s desperate to break into Chinese market(s) with Star Wars (see casting of Rogue1…which, mind you, I really liked Baze&Chirrut), so we get Asian actors (Finn love interest?) added to cast.”

          I doubt they would break into the Chinese market by casting an actress that no one has every heard of. Kellie Marie Tran was probably cast because of her talent. Anyway, listening to the response of the fans and the reception of the characters isn’t necessarily a bad thing, nor is changing character relationships. Does Vader ring a bell? If Rian Johnson think that this is what’s best for the movie, I trust him.

          • July 31, 2017 at 7:53 am

            Re: “If Rian Johnson think that this is what’s best for the movie, I trust him.”
            I hear ya on Rian. Very excited about what he’ll do with Ep8.

            I’d be more concerned if it were Trevorrow or the Lego-guys directing this one.

            Re: Tran / “by casting an actress that no one has every heard of”
            SW has frequently had actors not many had heard of. Tran is probably a fine (perhaps amazing) actress, but I don’t believe for a moment she was chosen solely because of her talent.
            If Disney knew they could massively break into Chinese market by killing of a current major character & replacing them, they’d do it.
            My real complaint & concern here is that decisions aren’t being made in order to service the story/character-arcs or director’s vision, but instead in service of marketing/sales.

            Again, I heard ya on Rian – in good hands they should be able to service both the marketing side of the biz & a talented director’s vision (/ creatively working within constraints ).
            My hope is that Rian’s talented enough to tighten things up & shape the story, such that Trevorrow (& studio meddling?) can’t easily bungle Ep9/trilogy closure.

          • July 31, 2017 at 7:03 pm

            Agreed on Rian. I am a big fan of his work and having met him years ago, I can tell you, if he is anything like the person I met, Episode Eight is going to be a treat. I just wished that the stepping stone, TFA, was a bit better. But it is Abrams and really I very little respect for him as a creator.

            If anything, Rian needs to be allowed to start breaking open the mystery boxes. Because, really; LOST a lot of people argued that the payoff sucked. Something I agree with. And that is always the thing with mystery boxes: it is always a huge risk. Especially, if the buildup is so good.

            But I trust Rian. Not so much Kennedy and Abrams. But he’s not the type who would do TFA all over again. Trevorrow, honestly; I hope he has his head in the game. I do think it is unfair to lambast him for his latest film. To be fair, I haven’t seen it, but even Spielberg and Favreau put out a few duds.

            I may not like JW, but really a lot of the films issues rested on the screenplay and Universal. It is shot very well. My biggest fear is that Carrie Fisher’s passing won’t be so much of a curveball for him. Especially, given TLJ and what Leia will be doing in that role. So, I am cautiously optimistic.

          • July 31, 2017 at 7:20 pm

            That’s funny. Had just replied to you with my own “cautiously optimistic” outlook.
            Your comments match almost exactly how I feel about all of the crew in charge.
            As well, hope Carrie’s passing doesn’t completely whack the story – from Trevorrow’s comments (lb of salt w/that) sounds like Leia was going to have an important/pivotal role in Ep9.

          • July 31, 2017 at 8:52 pm

            I won’t jump on the anti- Trevorrow train just yet because quite frankly I do not think he is all that bad. Could there be someone better? Sure. But really, my hope is that Trevorrow will gain the same amount of support as Rian is doing. And heck, a part of me wished that Rian wrote the treatment for episode nine, assuming TLJ is good.

            But really, I do feel bad that Carrie Fisher passed away and screwed up those plans. Because, to me; CF’s death symbolized we will never see the original trinity reunited. And that sucks. I am not one for nostalgia. Hence, why the TFA teaser did little for me. But I’d be lying if I wouldn’t weep if I saw Han, Leia and Luke reunited.

        • July 31, 2017 at 11:22 am

          “DIsney’s desperate to break into Chinese market(s) with Star Wars”
          This is nothing new: In Episode V, Lando was cast as a colored guy and in Episode VI, we have several asian looking pilots attacking the Death Star II. So, even George Lucas tried to open Star Wars for different markets and there’s nothing wrong with it. I think it is kind of unfair, to just blame Disney for it.

          • July 31, 2017 at 3:01 pm

            “colored guy”

          • August 1, 2017 at 4:33 am

            Oh sorry, “man of color”. Because mixing the words around makes it less offensive, somehow.

          • August 1, 2017 at 2:17 pm

          • August 1, 2017 at 3:14 pm

            For some people, it does. So weird to me that you can say person of color, but not colored person.

            I was just surprised by the 1960s vernacular.

          • August 1, 2017 at 1:24 pm

            I’m sorry, how do I say this correctly? In german, we say it as this. But I did not want to offend anyone ..

          • August 1, 2017 at 3:14 pm

            Oh, it’s fine. Just stood out to me haha. If you mean a black person, we usually just say that. Some might be offended by that, but I understand the cultural differences 🙂

        • July 31, 2017 at 6:56 pm

          Yeah, that bit with Poe Dameron supposedly dying pissed me off. It is Oscar Isaac. Had Abrams not seen him in anything? And the proof is in the pudding as despite his lackluster character, Isaac’s charm is easily a powerful asset. And heck, it showcased itself with the Dameron comic which is very good.

          Because, the truly sad part about TFA is that we NEVER get a scene with all three of the new trinity together. Let that sink in. Yeah, the OT; in ESB and ROTJ we had instances of them being separated. But that is the reason why I personally value sequences like the Dumpster scene in ANH, drawn out as it is, and whenever the group is together.

          Overall, it is that and various other reasons why I do not like TFA and really just see it as really vapid. Others are more than willing to disagree. But really, Rian Johnson is the only reason why I am willing to give the sequel a chance. Because, I am such a fan of his work and the dude in my view is an utter genius. A title I never use lightly.

          • July 31, 2017 at 7:10 pm

            Agree completely about Isaac & Rian too.
            Isaac was the new casting I was most enthusiastic about & was not disappointed w/his performance w/what little (scenes) he had to work from. JJ/writers made a mistake not utilizing Isaac more.
            And..Ever since Brick & Bloom I’ve been a huge fan of Johnson.
            He’s the reason I’m cautiously optimistic for TLJ. As well, that he might’ve helped shape (story/script) Ep9 so that Trevorrow would have a tough time completely bungling it.
            Fingers crossed – in Rian we trust. 😉

          • July 31, 2017 at 8:59 pm

            I argue a good 50% of TFA’s problems would have been solved had Poe Dameron joined the group. 1) Finn’s liar revealed storyline, smart as it was to get it over with, would be a non-issue 2) Poe flying the Falcon makes sense as he is a pilot. 3) He is the best pilot in the resistance and said he could pilot anything, case in point TIE fighter 4) Having the older, more experienced individual.

            What I always loved about the OT Trinity was that each of the characters had unique backgrounds, traits and specializations. Han was the scoundrel who is adept at the underworld, piloting and using a blaster. Luke was the naive farm boy with mystical powers and was a fantastic pilot. Leia was the sassy girl who was adept at shooting a blaster and navigating politics.

            Poe to me should have been the Han character; the seasoned, older guy. And really Isaacs charm was what made me like him. it is like a chef not using good ingredients to their best ability. The ingredients shine because they are high quality, not due to the chef crafting them.

            Isaacs and the rest of the cast, I like them for their acting. NOT as characters. But Rian Johnson isn’t Abrams. He is a very skilled writer, capable of coaxing some wonderful performances. The fact he made Bruce Willis good again should be a testament to his skills. So yeah, I am expecting something so much better than TFA just from him.

            Because Rian Johnson is a five star chef in terms of directing.

          • August 2, 2017 at 6:59 pm

            “2) Poe flying the Falcon makes sense as he is a pilot.”
            Mind blown. What a great idea this is

          • August 3, 2017 at 12:49 am

            Yeah, I know, right? I mean the opening crawl established that he was the Resistance’s best pilot. And it would have been easy to justify him doing so as we just saw him flying the TIE when escaping. Because, really; my question is that if this movie was supposed to pay homage(or copy) ANH, why not at the very least have our new trinity of characters meet up and interact?

            I have spoken to countless people about this and they all agree that Poe, much as they liked Isaacs(goes to showcase how talented he is), but his role was so small. I mean heck, it would have further developed the relationship between Poe and Finn. As for Han Solo, he could have easily been introduced later on.

    • July 31, 2017 at 7:01 am

      Agreed. Heck, Darth Maul had more of an impact by killing Qi-gon and he clearly was tacked on and only made relevance until the end. And what an insult to a female stormtrooper who is a captain. And kind of hypocritical as if KK was going all the way to make Rey the ultra competent(and one note) character she was, why not Phasma. Sigh….

      Fortunately, Rian Johnson is a good director who knows this cannot happen. My hope is that he will take Phasma’s blank slate, along with the story group, and do something cool with her. A demotion, plus wanting revenge against Finn, I think would work. Because, in a vacuum a female stormtrooper who is Finn’s main rival actually sounds really cool.

      • July 31, 2017 at 3:01 pm

        “And kind of hypocritical as if KK was going all the way to make Rey the ultra competent(and one note) character she was, why not Phasma. Sigh….”

        No? Different characters do different things.

    • July 31, 2017 at 4:19 pm

      “…fans are turning on Star Wars.”

      What an utterly baseless statement. Other than anonymous Internet whining, where do you see this? By any measure that counts, Star Wars is wildly popular. The new films have opened to largely positive reviews and have raked in boatloads of money. Star Wars Celebrations are jam-packed affairs that continue to draw fans from across the globe. A new Star Wars Disney park will probably operate at capacity for years. So yeah, I’m not sure where you get this.

      And if you have an issue with Star Wars being a merch-machine, you’re with the wrong franchise. Star Wars was a merchandise generator (and a huge one, at that) since 1977.

    • July 31, 2017 at 6:07 pm

      Haha. Says the guy who frequents a Star Wars news site.

    Coolest scenes of Phasma in TFA were in the TFA trailer, and they didn’t use the scenes in the movie. Sad… I was also let down by the sound of Phasma’s voice. Could have been “villained-up” a bit.

      I wished she could have fought Finn instead of that trooper. It would have at the very least proved why she should be ranked Captain. And would have made that cheap reference and garbage chute tolerable.

    Have her kill Finn..I know it’s harsh but it would bring sadness to the to TLJ and redeem her character lol.

      You want to trade a great comic-relief character like Finn for a Spray-Painted-Stormtrooper ?

      • July 31, 2017 at 7:25 am

        Not trading..but an equal boost in character development for the both of them. The once scared and cowardly Finn, courageously sacrifices himself to the very person seeking revenge towards him! It writes itself really. (And yes I know he showed a boost of courage by the end of TFA)

        • July 31, 2017 at 8:35 am

          I like Finn better tho. Maybe have Phasma kill Rose for us.

          • July 31, 2017 at 3:46 pm

            Yea sure..that’s another alternative.

          • July 31, 2017 at 7:27 pm

            Yes, this, please.

    • August 2, 2017 at 7:07 pm

      I personally thought it would have had a larger impact if Finn died from his wounds in TFA…We lost nothing moving forward with Finns death or Phasma.

      • August 2, 2017 at 8:35 pm

        Yea I could’ve also been used as motivation for Rey to train in the ways of the Jedi, rather than just wanting to “find” Luke Skywalker.

    It’ll be hard to redeem her. From background noise/comically disposed to fearsome foe? I’m all for it… if they can manage it. Maybe when the dust settles (and we’re lucky) TFA will be the rough prototype of the new trilogy that ended up much better than it started.

    Again… I like TFA a lot. Still lots of room for improvement.

      Say what you will about AotC, one thing it accomplished was making Boba Fett a sympathetic character with an actual backstory.

      • August 2, 2017 at 3:50 am

        It made me hate his story… and kind of ruined Fett for me… personally.

  • July 31, 2017 at 5:04 pm

    I’m hoping they will make her a more interesting character. Built up with hype for TFA as a stand-out character, what a joke.

  • July 31, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    Where is everyone getting the idea that she was supposed to be some big character in TFA? When did anyone say that? Just because she had a few toys made out of her?

    • July 31, 2017 at 6:33 pm

      I’m sure part of it was just that people thought she looked cool. Same thing happened with Boba Fett in 1980. But trotting Christie out at the pre-TFA events certainly made it seem like she was one of the main characters. I mean, they didn’t bring out Daniel Craig, but he had almost as big of a role.

    • July 31, 2017 at 6:43 pm

      The character was heavily prominent in the promotional materials.

      • July 31, 2017 at 7:09 pm

        Cause she looks cool. You promote what looks cool. People should know by now that “in the trailer” =/= “important part of the story.”

  • August 1, 2017 at 12:12 am

    We all know her backstory. Her name is Captain Cindel Phasma xD

  • August 2, 2017 at 7:45 am

    0,1% 😉
    But I’m sure most won’t have a problem accepting he escaped

  • August 2, 2017 at 7:23 pm

    I hope that episode 8 shows the EU Luke/ Mara Jade and Jaina crossover from an alternate time line and kill everyone from TFA, then return us to the EU timeline and give us some good movies and characters!

    • August 4, 2017 at 7:15 am

      Yeah, like Vader’s OP apprentice, or Palpatine’s botched clone!

      • August 4, 2017 at 7:39 am

        yeah, yeah I know…but the three I named were badass in the EU.

        • August 4, 2017 at 7:55 am

          That is completely true, fair enough.
