Many fans expected to see Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) shine in Star Wars: The Force Awakens but sadly, her screentime was too little. However, Christie teased that her character will make a different turn in The Last Jedi. The trailers already showed that she will have a major duel against Finn (John Boyega), so that's a good sign for her role.

The Last Jedi stars, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, and Domhnall Gleeson recently talked to about Star Wars, and Christie revealed that Phasma isn't happy about what happened to her in The Force Awakens.

"I think they put her into the garbage shoot and it's taken a long time for that smell to wear away, and I think just, obviously there are the circumstances but the smell you see," Christie said. "When you can't get rid of a smell that can absolutely plague you. That's not something I personally experienced, but it can make you volatile, and I think she's off the chain now, with Finn and the smell, she's lost control,"


Phasma's story was expanded in the Captain Phasma comic, which revealed what she did after she was thrown into the trash compactor. The comic shows how deceptive Phasma can be, and it looks like we'll see that side of her character in The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to release in theaters on December 15, 2017.
