Spoiler: Find out which Force Awakens character will return for Episode VIII

The premiere of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS is so close that I can almost taste it. The film will bring much of the old cast back, including Han Solo (Harrison Ford), General Leia (Carrie Fisher), and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), but it will also be introducing us to an entirely new group of heroes and villains. However, which of those heroes and villains will be returning for STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII remains a mystery, but thanks to a recent LA Times feature discussing the women of Star Wars, we can add a name to the EPISODE VIII cast list.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy revealed that Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) won't be pulling a Darth Maul by confirming that the character would be back for STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII. Kennedy also said that she has "big plans" for Captain Phasma, who she calls "an important character, a baddie in the best sense of the word." Christie then spoke about her character and how Phasma will push the boundaries for female roles.

The reason I love my character so much and I feel so enthusiastic about Capt. Phasma is, yes, she's cool, she looks cool, she's a villain — but more than that, we see a female character and respond to her not because of the way she looks. We respond to her because of her actions. I think we're a society that has promoted a homogenized idea of beauty in women — and in men — and I think it's really interesting, modern and necessary to have a female character that isn't about the way her body looks. It isn't about her wearing makeup. It's not about her being conventionally feminized. The idea of this enormous legacy and franchise embracing an idea like that, which of course to many of us feels logical, is actually really progressive. And long overdue.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS will (finally) be released on December 18, 2015.

Captain Phasma sounds like a compelling villain

and I'm looking forward to seeing her in action.

Of course, this makes me wonder which villain will die in THE FORCE AWAKENS. It would feel like a real cop-out to leave all three (General Hux, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma) alive at the end of the movie. I suspect one of them has to go, since the next films will bring Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis' character) to the fore.

Adam Driver's too big a name to kill off in one film, plus I have my

Adam Driver's too big a name to kill off in one film, plus I have my suspicions about his origins, so I'm going with Hux doing a Grand Moff Tarkin and buying the farm along with Starkiller Base.

I was thinking the same thing while reading the article. I was worried that Kylo Ren would be the Darth Maul of this trilogy and killed off by the end. Which would be lame, b/c the trilogy definitely needs a constant villain, unlike the PT. HUx makes the most sense to kill off.

"It's not about her being conventionally feminized." LOL. What the hell is she talking about? You can't even tell the character is female.

You know, generally when there's a female in armor there are clearly identifiable breasts plates for some odd reason.

@J.Burton. You do have a point. There have been warriors with the shape of breasts on their armor, but I don't remember any soldiers.

"You know, generally when there's a female in armor there are clearly identifiable breasts plates for some odd reason."

having been in the military and in policing, women usually have to have their vests tailored for their bust size. Compared to men who can just pick from small/medium/large persay. So this whole oh armor has breasts is wrong...isn't entirely wrong.
