Star Wars: The Force Awakens: First Look at Adam Driver as Kylo Ren and Lupita Nyong'o as Space Pirate Maz Kanata
So many Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoilers and rumors have been circulating the internet in the past few months, it's amazing that any of the roles have stayed under wraps for this long. Now, in honor of Star Wars Day, Vanity Fair has released exclusive images from the Force Awakens set that finally reveal the mysterious roles of Girls's Adam Driver and 12 Years a Slave's Lupita Nyong'o.




We already knew that Driver was playing a villain, and now it's been officially confirmed that the lanky actor will play Kylo Ren, who wielded that now-infamous crossguard lightsaber in the first trailer:

And Lupita Nyong'o is playing a character we've never heard of before, a pirate named Maz Kanata:

We don't know much about her, other than her name and the fact that she will be heavily CGI. We also have this rogues' gallery photo, which was released with the caption: "Galactic travelers, smugglers, and other assorted riffraff fill the main hall of pirate Maz Kanata's castle":
