Star Wars The Last Jedi was controversial for many people. Though it was praised for certain story beats, certain characters, certain twists, etc., not everything came off well. One of the things many agree they did wrong was killing off Captain Phasma. Phasma was heavily promoted in The Force Awakens, yet had only 5 minutes on screen. When she was teased for The Last Jedi, it seemed like she’d have more of a role. Turns out, she didn’t, at all.
Instead, she was relegated to one scene, had a quick fight with Finn, and then died after falling into a crevice in falling apart Star Destroyer. However, that wasn’t how it was going to go originally. On The Star Wars Show, the team got a hold of a deleted scene that showed a very different take on the Finn/Phasma battle. One that had a lot more brutality and psychology to the match. The fight is in the video at the 1:30 mark, we highly recommend you watch it.
While we won’t go so far as to say that this is the scene that should’ve been in the film, it’s hard to deny how much more pronounced it is, and how it made Phasma a more fleshed out character in some ways.
