Here’s Your First Look at Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’
It’s a good day to be a Star Wars fan.
Vanity Fair did the fandom a solid by unveiling its new Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens cover — and some of its issue’s never-before-seen, Annie Leibovitz-shot cast photos — appropriately on May the Fourth. The highly anticipated issue also reveals major secrets revolving the very hush-hush project, including the the roles of newcomer Adam Driver and Lupita Nyong’o.
As speculated, Girls actor Driver’s Kylo Ren is “next-generation” villain in the movie. In his character portrait, the new baddie is seen “command[ing] star troopers loyal to the evil First Order on the frozen plains of a secret base.”
Meanwhile, Nyong’o will play a CGI character named Maz Kanata. While her allegiance is still unknown, the publication lists her character as a “pirate.”
All in all, this teaser will get you super pumped for the movie — even if its release is 227 days away. For now, click through the gallery above to see some of the cast photos.
