    I can't think of any reason other than simple 'We forgot" but come on you know that is a stupid reason in a movie project especially that big. Thoughts ?

    When it comes to the order of credits, it's a matter of who has the higher billing, that's all. For example, my last film I was an Executive Producer so I got main credit for that on the poster, however, I cast myself as a co-lead for a role after we couldn't find the right actor. Due to that, I was only credited on the poster as an Executive Producer and not as an actor. This could mean many things for Phasma, as in, she might not have a big of a role as we initially all thought, or her name as an actress just is not big enough to warrant headlining on a theatrical poster.

    Wow, that's a big thing. She's even pictured on the poster. Its either an error, or there is more to this than anyone of us realizes. Has anyone seen a picture of her in costume, unmasked?

    I like your response, however I can't believe that she is just not that important to have a name on the poster when her character was in every trailer, and even is on like every poster (and is also selling merchandise).. this seems odd...

    Okay here is my speculation ready? its weird but listen.


    CAPTAIN PHASMA is a robot ? like real robot and is only voiced by her? okay thats way to much..

    It is likely a top billing issue. Not every cool looking character (a great reason to include in visual aspects of marketing) translate into main character. Other options include what union she may or may not belong to, her agent didn't push for it, who knows.

    For the same idiotic reason Ray Park and Temuera Morrison weren't credited on the posters for The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones.

    Exactly, it most likely is A SAG issue/Acting issue. Unleeeesss...they are hiding her real identity...I think that it's a mixture of both. SAG can be a Vhlor about who gets top billing and can hold back funding for films as a result, even a film such as SW, which is why The PT was strictly Non-SAG, also due to The whole WGA/DGA issues. I mean an actor could be SAG-Eligible but if an actor was SAG already, Lucas would just pay a hefty fine to deal with it, not to mention how respected he is in any of the communities regardless of laws.

    So does "Hayden Christensen," "Natalie Portman," and Harrison Ford." Although, if you are correct, it could also have been an issue of them wanting her to be credited as "Gwen Christie" but that's not her name. However, I know how these things work, and I'm not trying to talk down to you by any means, and I apologize if it might sound like it, but what you are saying is most likely not the case.

    She's not actually in the film. Her involvement was faked by the US government in an attempt to distract us from Benghazi

    I don't know really

    Best guess. She's less prominent than the others.

    Her name, maybe, but not her character...as far as we know, her character might be really important, like Luke, except she can be revealed but Luke cannot.
