Lupita Nyong'o may be in the running to play the female lead in Star Wars: Episode VII. The Oscar-winning actress is said to have met with J.J. Abrams just before the Academy Awards, where she took home best supporting actress for 12 Years A Slave.
Though it can't be confirmed, Lupita may be in talks to play a descendant of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Hmmm, between her and Adam Driver playing a villain, I might be here for this. Key word being might, giving the last trilogy's track record.
