    Hi,

    So, I've had my worries about the new cast. In the OT, there were a lot of memorable/fan favorite characters:

    Luke, Han, Vader, Emperor, Boba, Tarkin, Chewie, Greedo, Jabba and more.

    Will there be any really memorable characters now? I'm very optimistic about Kylo and Uber but the rest, hmm, I don't know. As for the aliens, I feel like there spamming puppets and robots but will there be any real big fan favorites?

    I'd like to know ur oppinions.

    Kylo Ren because he looks cool.
    Captain Phasma because she looks cool.

    I wouldn't doubt the power of the Star Wars fan base. Even the odd alien in the background had a following, leading to most getting names and needlessly extensive backstories.

    Like this weirdo from ANH, for instance. She even got her own action figure at some point not too long ago.

    So I'm sure the main and larger supporting characters are pretty safe.

    What is causing your worry? All indications are that they will all be memorable. They've already had a large impact on those of us who are following the development of the movie, and we don't even know anything about them yet.

    Not to speak for @ig89 , but I could possibly see such a concern stemming from a perceived reliance on the OT cast and props to get the cast "off the ground", so to speak. For my part, I agree with you about the impact they've already had before the film has even released, and I've no worries about it.

    A bit extreme IMO for her style but you could be right pink or purple makes her stand out.

    I think America is going to fall in love with Daisy Ridley after this film. Just a hunch.

    I would guess Captain Phasma will get a cult following similar to Boba Fett. I also think it would be humorous if "Bullhead" becomes a fan favorite. I don't think we have ever had an alien X-Wing pilot in canon before

    Phasma...assuming that they don't do something goofy and kill of the character too early.

    The trailer scene with Phasma walking down the hall, blaster at the ready, and cape slung over one shoulder is already a classic.

    That's no shiny stromtrooper who can't aim, that is menacing.

    what if she takes of her helmet & she is not human? if i remember correctly we have not yet seen anyone in the SW universe take of a helmet & reveal themselves as an alien (i have not seen clone wars or rebels, only the movies) but she will probably be human if the first order continues with only human soldiers like the empire , but it would be really cool if she was some weird alien under that helmet, a tall fierce female alien :)

    I think the most popular good guys will be Rey and Poe... As for the baddies. I think it possibly could be Ren, but I am going with an unknown, and then Capt Phasma
