New images from the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, have been released online by Vanity Fair, giving us a first or new look at several of the characters from the film. Here is Lupita Nyong’o’s, she plays the character of Maz Kanata, a motion-capture/CGI character and she will provide the voice for the charcter. The scanning dots pictured above will give the character her mannerisms and facial expressions. There are no images of Maz Kanata’s final form yet, but the character is a pirate, who lives in a castle and hangs out with other pirates, aliens, and outcasts.
Rumor has it that Maz Kanata appears very briefly in the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We see an alien hand, which many fans have speculated might be her, handing off Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber (check it out in the video below).
