Lupita Nyong’o Confirms Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Lupita Nyong’o talks to Deadline about bringing characters to life including Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

And of course, there’s another episode of Star Wars in the offing. This time it’s The Rise of Skywalker. Will we see a lot more of Maz onscreen this time? “I haven’t seen it, I won’t see it,” she says. “They never let you see these things beforehand. Although, maybe, I don’t know. Let’s see how J.J. [Abrams] is feeling this time.” Nyong’o smiles and with a note of polite self-deprecation in her voice, adds, “I don’t know what the final thing’s going to look like, but from what I saw, I am in it.”
