Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Boyega Promises Epic Finn/Phasma Showdown

The new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit Monday tonight, and fans are pouring over every frame of the trailer to suss out what they can from the film. Of the big "holy crap" moments in the trailer, ranking high up there was seeing John Boyega's Finn go up against Gwendoline Christie's Captain Phasma. Boyega took to Twitter to promise that anyone who has had a "crappy boss" -- and who hasn't? -- is going to enjoy that fight.

Despite Finn being in the First Order at the start of The Force Awakens, he and Phasma barely interacted. The only time they're face to face is when she's berating him for taking his helmet off after the massacre on Jakku, and then on Starkiller Base when holding her at gunpoint. In the books, their relationship is fleshed out; Phasma tried to train Finn's caring nature out of him, as the Order viewed it as a weakness. That clearly didn't take, as the trailer shows, and it's doubtful that student and teacher won't clash again later in the film.

Debuting in theaters on Dec. 15, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is directed by Rian Johnson and stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran.
