Captain Phasma was one of the characters people were looking forward to most in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” only to be disappointed by the amount of screen time she had on screen.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will rectify that. Director Rian Johnson said in an interview:

“Gwendoline Christie is one of my favorite people, and you get to see her in action which I think is going to be really fun. That character is just so damn cool looking. Like, okay, let’s see what we can do with her. Let’s put her in action and see what happens.”

The anticipated sequel starring Daisey Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Mark Hamill and Carrie Fischer hits theaters Dec. 15.

Ok, so his work with the Star Wars prequel and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” were…less then stellar. Don’t get me started on his part with “Red Tails”. But, I’ll give George Lucas credit. He’s going to donate most of the $4 billion from his sale to Disney to help improve education.

In other news, Lucas apparently told Mark Hamill and Carrie Fischer at one point that he planned to do a new trilogy.
