'Star Wars' Character Marks A 'Progressive' Change For Gwendoline Christie


Gwendoline Christie

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' has been an exciting prospect for many reasons; it's not just that it's an adored franchise all over the world, or even that it sees the original actors reprising their roles, but it's been given a fresh re-vamp with some diverse new roles that break down major stereotypes.

Gwendoline ChristieGwendoline Christie represents feminism in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

One such character to do that is Captain Phasma; a chrome-armoured female stormtrooper played by Gwendoline Christie, who was thrilled to get the chance to not only fulfil her childhood dream, but to bring such a unique female character to life. 'I think I was around 6-years-old when my family showed it to me and I fell in love with the film', she reveals. 'There was so many unusual elements, things that I didn't feel I'd seen before in other films. I remember, even at that very young age, seeing Princess Leia and being so in a state of rapture due to her strength, her wit, her determination. Thinking back about this recently, that was quite a significant moment.'

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Review

Essential

Appealing both to a new generation of viewers and fans of the series since the beginning, this 30-years-later sequel to 1983's Return of the Jedi is a thrilling adventure. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams has managed to capture the tone of the original trilogy while telling a story about young, vibrant new characters whose connection to the overall saga deepens intriguingly as events unfurl.

Over the past three decades, the Empire has regrouped, forming the First Order to crush the Old Republic for good. And the plucky Rebellion hasn't offered much resistance since leader Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) disappeared. The Empire's top henchman Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is searching for him just as diligently as the rebel leader General Leia (Carrie Fisher). But the real action is happening out of their grasp, as disaffected storm trooper Finn (John Boyega) teams up with rebel pilot Poe (Oscar Isaac) and then feisty scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) and expressive droid BB-8. Along the way, Han Solo and Chewbacca (Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew) find themselves back in the fray. And everyone is startled when there's a strong stirring in the force.

Abrams beautifully recreates the scruffy, clanky mechanical atmosphere of the original trilogy, infusing scenes with witty banter and John William's soaring score to throw us right back into that familiar galaxy. This includes the saga's main themes: the temptation of power, how true heroism is often accidental, and the tension between parents and children. Combine this with a plot that propels itself with a series of unexpected adventures and battles, all centred on the characters, and the film taps strongly into the teen in all of us.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer


It's been thirty years since the Rebel Alliance; led by the noble Luke Skywalker, the intrepid Princess Leia and the lionhearted Han Solo; finally defeated Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire, alongside his redeemed assistant Darth Vader. The second Death Star was reduced to rubble, and the galaxy was free from a tyrannous evil once more. If only that were true. For there can never be good without evil, and sure enough another Dark Lord, Supreme Leader Snoke, has arisen to take the Emperor's place, with even more brutal plans for the civilians across the stars. But this time there are also new heroes, better equipped to deal with the ever looming terror thanks to an example set by the now ageing former Han, Luke and Leia. They are now preparing to help a vindicated former stormtrooper named Finn, an independent scavenger called Rey, and Poe Dameron who is a Resistance X-Wing pilot.
