Star Wars has released a new excerpt from the new book PHASMA by Delilah S. Dawson.
In the excerpt we learn that Phasma is from a desolate planet called Parnassos. On this planet the people are scavengers who watch for shipwrecks to gain supplies to survive on. (Sound familiar?)
Phasma herself is the self-proclaimed “greatest warrior of Parnassos.”
In a recent episode of The Mix here on Caleb Graham TV Matt Ridge and I spoke about how we have seen a situation like this before with Rey on Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens film.
In both Phasma and Rey’s cases we see them beginning their story on a desolate planet of scavenger inhabitants that live and survive off of things that they find from spaceships that crash on the planet. Rey even lives in a wreck of an Imperial AT-AT Walker.
Another similarity that we see is that Phasma is an established kick-a$$ presence on her home planet. On Jakku in The Force Awakens we see Rey as a very sure of herself take no crap presence. Both of these women know how to protect themselves.
A slight contrast is that in Rey’s case she is recruited to the Resistance. In Phasma’s case she is recruited by the First Order.
There is word going around on social media that Captain Phasma may be the “new” Darth Vader of the current trilogy of films and will turn out to be Rey’s mother.
An interesting assumption that I am absolutely ok with.
