“Star Wars” franchise has portrayed the elite storm trooper Captain Phasma in unisex armour in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Is this the beginning to change the trend of costumes of the female warriors in films? Read on to know more details.
We would have watched ladies doing battle in female armour specific to their sex, in many action movies and television series. Indeed, the lady fighters portrayed in most of the films and television series use their knockers as weapons even if male fighters have guns.
Hope you remember Xena (Lucy Lawless) of the American-New Zealand television series “Xena, Warrior Princess,” with her studded bra tops and leather miniskirts. You would also seen Guinevere (Keira Knightley) of the “King Arthur” movie with strappy bustiers, Jessica Biel in the “Blade” trilogy with second-skin singlet tops, and Grace Jones in “Conan the Destroyer” with teeny tiny spiky costume.
Even the “Star Wars” franchise has portrayed Princess Leia in a repulsive “slave” swimsuit in the past. However, the franchise has given equal opportunity for both male and female warriors of the new “Star Wars” films, television series, etc., reported The Daily Telegraph.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has portrays Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), elite storm trooper Captain, in a rocking unisex armour. Her costume in the new installment of the “Star Wars” franchise is a “shiny gender-neutral version of the standard trooper suit,” reported the source.
In the recently released promo image of the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” we could watch that Christie looks absolutely super amazing. Even one of the Facebook user has revealed that it is really hard for him to recognize that Christie is in female armour in the promo image. Indeed, he might be expecting her in sexy trooper version female armour.
“It’s armour. On a woman. It doesn’t have to look feminine,” the Facebook moderator of “Star Wars” wrote back to the users’s comments.
Jenna Mullins, E! News writer, revealed that it is not essential that the female warriors should look like ladies during a war, reported the source.
Captain Phasma’s practical-but-flashy unisex standard trooper suit in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is indeed a beginning to change the trend in which female warriors are portrayed in movies and television series.
