Lupita Nyong’o’s Maz Kanata revealed in new Star Wars: The Force Awakens video | Film | The Guardian
Two new videos for Star Wars: The Force Awakens have give fans their first glimpse of diminutive alien Maz Kanata, played in motion capture by Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o, as well as new footage of Daisy Ridley’s Rey in action. Kanata, who appears to be orange, previously made an appearance on the official The Force Awakens poster. However, the extra-terrestrial’s image was reproduced in such tiny dimensions that fans have been waiting for a better look. This time around, she appears briefly 15 seconds into a video for Disney XD channel during a scene in which John Boyega’s Finn draws his lightsaber.
