Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) is reprising her role in the highly anticipated film, Star Wars: Episode 8. In a new update, it is revealed that she might be seen using a new weapon in the last jedi.

Previously Game of Thrones star Christie is seen using a gun in the force awakens. But the film did not have any scene where she is seen using her weapon. In fact, being the commander of the First Order’s stormtroopers, her major part of the work is to take action on the First Order dissenters. Now with the introduction of a new weapon, she might be no more missing in action. Read to know more.

Usage Of The New Weapon Of Captain Phasma

A source has spilled the details about Captain Phasma and her new weapon to a famous Star Wars fansite. As per that source, “You are going to love Captain Phasma’s spear in The Last Jedi. She looks killer,” reports Making Star Wars.

The report also reveals that this spear is going to be “a weapon, a staff.” More details about the look and usage of this weapon are not revealed by the source. Speculations are rife that this weapon might play an important role in the last jedi.

Captain Phasma is close to Snoke and the First Order. She has been working with Kylo Ren since a long time. Hence, this weapon can be used to take down the Resistance force. Or as per the aforementioned source, this weapon might be used by her for First Order rituals and duties.

Captain Phasma Might Kill The Last Jedi

Star Wars: Episode 8 is officially titled as Star Wars: The Last Jedi. So far there is no revelation whether the word jedi refers to single or multiple persons. This new update on Phasma’s weapon has made fans curious to see some action scenes of this female First Order captain. This might include killing the last jedi.

There are several possibilities in which this can take place. One of it is if Kylo Ren joins the light side of the force. If this happens then Snoke will be left alone with his stormtroopers. In this situation, he needs an apprentice who can follow his orders.

The role of Captain Phasma becomes important at this point. She might be handed over this weapon and asked by Snoke to take on the last jedi. And in this way, Phasma might kill the last jedi.

But to know the actual usage of this weapon and more about Captain Phasma, fans will have to wait. Star Wars: Episode 8 hits the theaters on Dec.15, 2017.
