THE NEW STAR Wars film is all set to be released in December, and it will feature a new character called Captain Phasma – played by Gwendoline Christie above.

When the official Star Wars Facebook page put up a fan-made drawing of the character over the weekend, people were impressed.

But there was one comment that drew an excellent response from whoever runs the Star Wars page

People noted that just because Phasma is female didn’t mean she needed special female armour

The comment was deleted from below the photo by the original poster, but it hasn’t stopped it becoming a major talking point

And most people agreed that whoever runs the Star Wars Facebook page is good at their job

Somebody who doesn’t take any s**t

And probably deserves a pay increase
