Based on the news I figured its time she get her own thread. What role do you guys see her playing?
I'd love to see some female baddies in the film, but realistically, I've no idea.
Edit: But if she's as good as folks claim, I'm glad she's aboard.
Sith wannabe Asajj Ventress????
I doubt Ventress but a female Sith would be a most welcome addition.
Personally I hope she has nothing to do with Ventress. Ventress is a TCW-era character, leave her there please.
i think she would look great as ventress though.
It's interesting how many of you assume she will portray a villainess. Why?
For those needing a link for PROOF <-----
In my Nute Gunray voice: "Ahh VICTORY!"
When Latinoreview originally broke the news about her months ago I believe they said she's up for a Sith. I must admit, a female Sith would be a welcome addition.
I think she'd also look great as an original character who did not need some contrived backstory involving carbon freezing or something to bring her 60 years into the future.
The first Lupita rumors actually pegged her as a Kenobi offspring. The Ventress rumors weren't until later.
I would love her to be a Sith. Regardless though, I am overjoyed she is in the cast! She's a beautiful, talented woman and she will add a lot whatever her role!
I hope she plays a character who starts off on the dark side and is eventually converted to the light. That would be epic.
Could SHE be Luke's wife? Now that would be interesting.
Could be - quite an age difference it seems, though.
Looking forward to this.
I almost want to say Lando's daughter. Just to see how people react.
Oops, I said it.
That would be awesome
After a couple months of rumors I'm glad she's officially on board.
She's @Lupita_Nyongo on Twitter.
Interesting tidbit: If you check her instagram, she's spent the past couple of weeks in Morocco (rumored shooting location).
And yet . . . the official news reports never cleared up on what her role would be. Heck, they made Oscar Isaac and John Boyega's roles quite plain.
They did? Lol.
The very existence of this thread is pure gold.
This is all.
At 6'3" Christie seems like a better choice for a villain, IMO. I think Lupita looks too pretty to be a baddie.
