Unless—of course—Star Wars: Episode VII is ENTIRELY about this fierce and flawless Amazon stomping around the galaxy far far away like the bodacious boss she is. But the trailer leads me to believe there’s a plot or some bullshit.
At least Vanity Fair has given us a string of eye-meltingly gorgeous photos of Game of Thrones/ The Force Awakens star sporting a crazy cool Captain Phasma inspired dress. Be sure to check out their short but so sweet gallery, and enjoy the vid below, where Christie shares the feminist importance of her chrome trooper’s armor.
After recognizing that women in film are often regarded first and foremost on their bodies, Christie explained of her Star Wars heroine, “This is a character who wears armor, and as a consequence we are forced to judge her or interact with her and form a relationship on her character and her actions (as opposed to her body).”
Alright. Even though there’s no way this movie will have all the Phasma fierceness we demand, we’re still in. For you, Christie.
Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens opens December 18th.
