And another previously mentioned rumor has indeed come to pass. It’s official, Lupita Nyong’o has officially been cast in J.J. Abrams’ now-in-production Star Wars Episode VII. Whether or not the rumor pans out and she is indeed playing Asajj Ventress remains to be seen.
In unexpected casting news, Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth, Game of Thrones) has also been added to the list. Whatever it is, I can’t deny being excited about it!
