Here's the First Look at Lupita Nyong'o in Star Wars

Details about Lupita Nyong'o's upcoming character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens have been, well, nonexistent ever since her involvement in the film was announced last June. But as ELLE pointed out, in honour of Star Wars Day yesterday, Vanity Fair dropped the first cast photos from the film.

Scroll below to catch a glimpse of Lupita (shot by Annie Leibovitz) with her face tracked with little dots so Industrial Light & Magic artists can transform her into a CGI character, pirate Maz Kanata. Get excited.
