Captain Phasma is the \’Boba Fett\’ of The Force Awakens


Captain Phasma Force Awakens

For a while those familiar with Force Awakens spoilers thought that Captain Phasma could end up being the “Bob Fett” of the Sequel trilogy, and now that seems to be true.

In an interview with the LA Times Gwendoline Christie confirms what many have suspected about the character:

“She is a Boba Fett-style character,” the actress said, “which means she makes a lot of impact but she’s not at the forefront of the action all the time.”

Based on the popularity of Phasma even before the movie is released (it’s the best-selling toy by far and a very popular Halloween costume), it seems like she really is the Boba Fett of the new trilogy in more ways than just the story.
