In more news coming out of Celebration, Lucasfilm has announced that Gwendoline Christie’s underused Star Wars: The Force Awakens villain Captain Phasma is set to take centre stage in her own comic book limited series and novel as part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi publishing initiative.
From Marvel Comics comes the five-issue limited series Star Wars: Captain Phasma from the creative team of Kelly Thompson and Marco Checchetto, which will take place in the immediate aftermath of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you were wondering how Phasma escaped the trash compactor, you’ll find the answer here.
Meanwhile, the First Order officer is also the subject of an upcoming book, Star Wars: Phasma, from author Delilah S. Dawson and Del Rey, while other announcements included Ken Liu’s Star Wars: The Legends of Luke Skywalker and Claudia Gray’s Star Wars: Leia: Princess of Alderaan YA novel.
