Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Don’t Expect A Lot Of [SPOILERS] In Deleted Scenes


Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Don’t Expect A Lot Of [SPOILERS] In Deleted Scenes

The opening weekend for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has come and gone and it has been an interesting weekend. Writer and director Rian Johnson sat down with Business Insider to talk about the movie and he specifically addresses one character in particular. However, to get into it does require a spoiler warning so if you haven’t seen the movie yet now would be a good time to go out and do that.

One of the characters we once again got precious little time with was Captain Phasma as brought to life by Gwendoline Christie. We know that there are scenes that were left on the cutting room floor and considering how little of Phasma we see in this movie before her apparent death it stands to reason that maybe there are more scenes with her. According to Johnson that doesn’t appear that is the case.

There wasn’t a ton of Phasma that we shot for this. The God’s honest truth is, if you take a look at the movie, it’s so full already. There are so many characters to serve already, and it’s tough because Phasma really enters the movie when she needs to, and she does exactly what she needs to do in it. She’s someone at the tail end of Finn’s journey that represents his past for him to have this cathartic moment of being on the side of good and fighting her.

The movie is very full and there are main characters that don’t feel like they get enough screen time let alone a smaller character like Phasma.

The notion of having a side plot of Phasma throughout the course of the film — look, I love Gwen [Christie]. I love Phasma. It would have been fun. But it just wasn’t the story we were telling. There just wasn’t a place for it. We already had quite a full plate to deal with in terms of all the other characters.

Phasma is a character that has taken on the Boba Fett role in the modern trilogy in that she is an awesome looking character who doesn’t have much to do. However, they did expand on her in a book and it turns out her history is really interesting. It just doesn’t appear to have room in the main trilogy.

Look, I’m bummed about it too. Absolutely. I wish we could have more Phasma. Just the truth of it is there wasn’t room for her in this movie. She’s so badass, I wish it was her story. But it isn’t. Maybe there will be one eventually at some point.

Was that a hint that she survived? Probably not but maybe we’ll see more books or comics that expand on her character a little.

Summary: Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares to do battle with the First Order.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson, stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Carrie Fisher, and Adam Driver. It’s out now.
