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.


There will be no “Star Wars” news or panel of any kind from Comic-Con. Disney did confirm, however, that “Star Wars Episode VII” will have a “presence” at D23, which happens Aug. 9-11. People are expecting casting announcements, including the much rumored return of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. No concrete details have been released but the J.J. Abrams directed film will begin production in early 2014 so news has to come soon.

Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) said she was coming back, so this isn’t a huge surprise. But oh George Lucas. In an interview with Business Week, Lucas let it slip that Fisher, Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo) are almost 100 percent certainly coming back for “Star Wars Episode VII”. The article by Business Week is a fascinating read. Some of the details it goes into is how difficult it was for Lucas to hand over the reins to Lucasfilm and more. You can read that article here. Somehow, I’m guessing Kathleen Kennedy is going to get Lucas to stop spilling the beans in the near future. J.J. Abrams is notoriously secretive, (Just look at “Star Trek Into Darkness”) and I doubt Disney wants that to change. Michael Arndt (“Toy Story 3”) is penning the script. As of now, the film is shooting for a 2015 release date.

Since it was announced J.J. Abrams would helm “Star Wars Episode VII”, we’ve had lots of rumors. Harrison Ford would be back. They’d do a young Han Solo film. They’d do a Yoda film. Mark Hamill would be back. Well, we finally have some solid news. In an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated, Carrie Fisher was asked if she’d be back as Princes Leia. Her answer? “Yes.”

We have our first seemingly official confirmation .I would guess that Han Solo and Luke Skywalker wouldn’t be far behind now.

More reports are coming out. Michael Arndt (“Toy Story 3”, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) is apparently writing the script for “Star Wars Episode VII”. Now, reports are that the script features  Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo and that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford are very likely to return to their roles.
