There has been quite a lot of conversation and speculation about the “chrometrooper” that has been circling the internet ahead of official information about this character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now, thanks to Vanity Fair, there will be more to talk about.
First off, it turns out that the “chrometrooper” is actually a trooper named Captain Phasma. She is a member of The First Order, which appears to be the newest incarnation of the Empire. Phasma is played by Gwendoline Christie, known for her role in Game of Thrones. While she looks like she is probably a villain, Vanity Fair (which also has an awesome photo Vanity Fair – Captain Phasma) hints that looks might be deceiving.
But should we really assume that Christie’s Phasma is pure evil? In a franchise where arakish smuggler can get the princess, a Sith Lord can be redeemed, and a stormtrooper can be a potential hero, anything can happen.
So there you have it, more answers that lead to more questions. One thing I would encourage you to do though is re-watch this teaser/trailer now that you know who Captain Phasma is.
What do you think of Captain Phasma?
Make it a GREAT day!
