It has been a long while now since it was first announced that Disney had bought the rights to the Star Wars franchise and were bringing us a new Star Wars trilogy over the course of the next few years. Since then we have heard many different rumours about Star Wars: Episode VII, with a lot of different stars being linked to roles in the planned movie.
Over the past few weeks and months it has been claimed that director J.J. Abrams has been taking meetings with potential actors for Star Wars: Episode VII, as he begins to get an idea of who he wants in his movie. While some of the names being linked have purely been rumours, there are others that have met with Abrams and are getting ever closer to signing on for the project.
One of those names is Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o, who won the Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar for her performance in the movie 12 Years a Slave. It was obvious that Lupita was going to go on to have a huge future from then on and it looks like that huge future could be a part of the new Star Wars movies.
While it has not been officially confirmed who Lupita Nyong'o would play in Star Wars: Episode VII, it has been said that it will be a very important character, with some people claiming that she could even be playing a Sith. For now though, that is just speculation and we will have to wait and see.
