Aside from gaining popularity with a new generation of fans, the sci-fi adventure also introduced a ton of AH-Mazing new characters like Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
However, there was one character fans were a little disappointed in — Captain Phasma.
Not because she wasn't awesome, but because the Storm Trooper commander — played by Game Of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie — didn't get NEARLY as much screen time as the rest of the new cast.
Thankfully, Christie confirmed on the SAG Awards red carpet that her character would indeed be returning in Episode VIII:
