Rejoice! Lupita Nyong’o & Gwendoline Christie Cast In “Star Wars: Episode VII”

Rejoice! Lupita Nyong'o & Gwendoline Christie Cast In "Star Wars: Episode VII"
"Star Wars: Episode VII" Casting News!

The first three “Star Wars” movies (Episodes IV, V and VI) are amazing, obviously, but the three prequels (Episodes I, II and III) that came out in the late-’90s and early-’00s were such total junk that I was pretty meh on ever seeing J.J. Abrams’ attempts at the three upcoming sequels in the saga. But I may be changing my tune now that it’s been officially announced that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and “Game of Thrones” Gwendoline Christie — aka Brienne of Tarth, aka Baby Tilda Swinton — have been cast in “Star Wars: Episode VII.” No word yet on who they’ll be playing, but if I could, I’d be toasting them with a drink at the Mos Eisley Cantina.

J.J. Abramspalooza: He’s Producing A Third “Star Trek,” Doing 2 TV Pilots And, Oh Yeah, “Star Wars: Episode VII” Is Confirmed

Sorry if you don’t like J.J. Abrams. You must be having a rough time of it right now.

First things first, the rumor that he’s directing “Star Wars: Episode VII” is no longer a rumor: Disney has confirmed it.

In a press release sent out by the Mouse House, LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy sung her praises of Abrams, saying:

“It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie. J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.”
