STAR WARS: J.J. Abrams Talks 'Captain Phasma'; Plus New Pics Of Her Awesome Armor

Here's a few tidbits we missed from D23. After the presentation, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens director chatted a little about what he feels Gwendoline Christie will being to the role of the villainous Captain Phasma. We also have some detailed new shots of her striking armor...


While we are beginning to learn a little more about the new characters that'll populate Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the movie's release date looms ever closer, one in particular has remained shrouded in mystery - in fact, we've yet to even see her without that chrome helmet on. We know Captain Phasma is a First Order villain, we know she'll be played by Game Of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie, and we know she sports some damn cool armor, and that's about it.

While speaking to the press after the D23 Star Wars presentation, J.J. Abrams... didn't actually reveal anything else about Phasma! Instead, he spoke about the actress playing her and what she brought to the role, and it sounds like he was very pleased with her work. Collider also snapped a few nice close-ups of that awesome armor.


"I can only say that Gwendoline Christie is my favorite. She just killed it. You think, “Well, what? she's wearing a costume.” But it’s a lot to wear and to have a performance when you’re wearing that requires a different kind of skill set and an additional talent, and she’s got it. It’s an incredible thing to work with her. I am glad that a character has been designed that is visually as stunning as that is, because she deserves it and the fans do to. When I first saw that design my mind was blown because it looked so undeniable."
