8. Captain Phasma’s revenge
If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, it’s possible that Gwendoline Christie’s role in The Force Awakens was the only argument you needed to go see the film. Perhaps you were expecting Brienne of Tarth’s bravado to translate to the galaxy far, far away.
Unfortunately, that also means you were sorely disappointed when Captain Phasma turned out to be a shiny garbage can who rightfully deserved to be in the trash compactor because she was such a waste of Gwendoline Christie’s talent.
But before you really drag J.J. Abrams for doing her dirty like that, there’s still hope.
At this point, we’ve been promised that Captain Phasma will return and get a bigger role in the franchise. We already saw her in the trailer, but she looked exactly the same as before: shiny with a fantastic strut.
Honestly, she deserves to show us why she rose through the ranks of Stormtroopers and why the First Order allows her to stand out like a walking stainless steel microwave or wear a better cloak than Kylo Ren.
So may The Last Jedi give us the Phasma backstory we deserve.
