Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theatres this coming December, and director Rian Johnson will be using his addition to the long-running franchise to explore certain characters in greater depth than what we got in The Force Awakens.
One character fans will learn a little but more about this time around will be the chrome plated Captain Plasma. Easily a fan-favorite newcomer in The Force Awakens, fans walked away underwhelmed by how the character was used in the J.J. Abrams film.
Despite this, actress Gwendoline Christie had nothing but good things to say about Johnson's vision for the film while speaking with Entertainment Weekly during the Television Critics Association press tour this past weekend. She even took time to share the role she played in further developing the chrome-clad Stormtrooper captain for the new film.
"I was just so delighted to be in The Last Jedi, and for that to be directed by Rian Johnson, who is another director I’ve long admired since I watched Brick, actually; I thought that was a really brilliant piece of work," Christie told Entertainment Weekly. "When I met him, these are huge things to me and things I never thought would happen in my career, so when Rian invited me to read the script, have my thoughts and then to come and discuss it with him — as he did all of the cast members — I was really thrilled to have an opportunity of a forum where I could put my ideas forward and have some back and forth about where we felt things were and where we felt they can go. What I can tell you about the next Star Wars film is I think Rian does an exceptional job of going deeper, of going further, and really exploring what these relationships are."
