Lupita Nyong’o And Brienne From ‘Game Of Thrones’ Join The ‘Star Wars’ Cast

She'll make a lovely Ewok.  

Even though they’ve been filming for a couple weeks, the producers of Star Wars aren’t ready to let the casting rumors and hype die down just yet. Today, news came out that Lupita Nyong’o will be joining the cast. Because it’s a J.J. Abrams project, and those projects are super-secret, we don’t know the plot of the film or the role Nyong’o will play in it.

We’ll also be getting Gwendoline Christie, who plays the giant warrior Brienne in Game of Thrones. My guess is that she’ll be painted black and portray the Death Star, but my guesses are normally terrible.

The movie will premiere in December of 2015, which will probably be about the time come to terms with the fact that Brienne, along with every other Game of Thrones character, has been fed to bears by Littlefinger.
