The saga continues with Star Wars: The Last Jedi this December as Rey, Finn, and Poe continue their struggle against the First Order forces of Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren, and Supreme Leader Snoke.
But before you sit down with your popcorn and coke to take in the movie this December, you are going to want to discover just how Captain Phasma escaped the destruction of Starkiller Base in the final moments of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Writer Kelly Thompson and artist Marco Checchetto are teaming up to tell a four part miniseries that bridges the gap between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Along with bridging the gap, the story aims to explore just how Captain Phasma escaped Starkiller Base.
If one assumed the fearsome Captain Phasma would be undone by the Resistance and a trash compactor, they don’t really know the chrome-armored warrior very well, but you soon will.
“The Star Wars films, with so many fantastic characters, obviously can’t be a ‘Phasma story,’ and it’s especially cool that Phasma is getting explored in depth in both her forthcoming novel and comic book,” said series writer Kelly Thompson. “The most exciting thing to me about our mini-series is that we were given the awesome responsibility of bridging a gap between Force Awakens and Last Jedi – of answering the question of what happened to Phasma after she went into that trash chute. Anytime you get to write official Star Wars is pretty incredible, but getting to decide what that link is, for a super intriguing character in some of the most epic movies of all time, is next level!”
You can discover Captain Phasma’s story this September before seeing her return to the silver screen in December.
Along with the exciting story, Marvel will also be offering a number of covers from Paul Renaud, Mark Brooks, Diego Orlotegui, Todd Nauck, Paulina Ganucheau, and Skottie Young.
