lupita star wars casting announced

OMG, we didn't think we could be any more excited for Star Wars Episode VII!

But we are now!

LucasFilm has just announced its two newest cast members- Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie!

Lupita took the world by storm in her Oscar-winning turn in 12 Years A Slave, and Gwendoline is killing it (often literally) as Brienne of Tarth on HBO's Game Of Thrones! The force is definitely strong with these two!

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement:

"I could not be more excited about Lupita and Gwendoline joining the cast of Episode VII. It's thrilling to see this extraordinarily talented ensemble taking shape."

Wow! We had heard a rumor about Lupita a while back, but she wasn't mentioned in the big cast announcement. Does this mean other Star Wars casting rumors we've heard could turn out to be true??
