Lupita Nyong’o is having the best year ever.
After winning best supporting actress with her major silver screen debut in 12 Years a Slave, we’ve all been tirelessly watching her be fabulous and wondering “what will she do next?”
Well, awesome news. Everyone’s favorite elegant, beautiful, poised fairy princess Lupita Nyong’o has officially joined the cast of Star Wars. Could her second major film be any more epic?
Speaking of epicness, our fave badass lady from Game of Thrones will be right there beside Lupita.
Gwendoline Christie, or better know to us nerds as Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones, will also be joining the cast.
It hasn’t been announced yet which characters the ladies will be playing, but we’re just thrilled to see more women on the originally disappointingly male-majority cast. Plus, I can’t wait to see what they wear to the premiere!
