While the original Star Wars trilogy caught the fascination of boys and girls alike, there weren't many female role models in outer space besides Princess Leia. Thirty years later, in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS the force is strong with women on the screen and off. Gwendoline Christine ("Captain Phasma") and Daisy Ridley ("Rey") talk about girl power in Episode VII and having LucasFilm's Kathleen Kennedy behind the scenes driving the franchise into the next chapter. Watch interview.
