Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie cast in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Lupita Nyong'o

When last we left Star Wars: Episode VII, I may have kind of sort of slightly hinted ("hinted", yeah) that I wasn't thrilled with how few female parts they wrote for the movie. Well, like a blessing from nerd heaven, two new female roles have been added to Episode VII, and they've been filled by Game Of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie and Lupita Nyong'o. Let it never be said that the people behind the new Star Wars movies don't know how to correct MORE

And yet so far, no roles for women, so basically it'll be a lot like the original MORE

J.J. Abrams

In what I can only assume is a brazen attempt to confuse your parents even more about the difference between Star Wars and Star Trek, J.J. Abrams has been tapped as the director of the new Disney-fied Star Wars, which means you can look forward to the big twist ending where the whole movie was just Hurley day-dreaming while stuck on the island. All right, have I alienated all our non-nerd readers? I have? Terrific. Via Coming Soon ... Star MORE
