A long time ago in a kitchen far far away……. 40 rebel bakers joined forces to bring together sugar art like no other. This band of rebel baker call themselves Star Wars, The Bakers Strike Back!
Jessica did an amazing job recreating the Star Wars Episode 7 Pop! Captain Phasma.
I like the fact that Phasma, the first female stormtrooper I can recall, was a Captain not just a regular stormtrooper. She had a fairly small, but important role, in The Force Awakens. I hope we get to see more of her in the future. I think she could be a really interesting character.
A few interesting pieces of trivia about Captain Phasma.
- The distinctive chrome stormtrooper armor with a cape wasn’t original designed for Captain Phasma. It began as a costume for Kylo Ren.
- Gwendoline Christie, who played Captain Phasma, was also in The Hunger Games and is a regular on Game of Thrones.
- Characters go through a lot of revision from concept to screen. Captain Phasma is no exception. Since stormtroopers are usually men, early on Captain Phasma was a male. There is even a rumor that Benedict Cumberbatch was approached to play the role.
