Recent Academy Award-winner Lupita Nyong'o and Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie have joined the cast of Star Wars, respectively returning the actresses to possible slave garb and dramatic hand-loss. Lucasfilm made the announcement official today, adding second and third females who aren't Carrie Fisher with president Kathleen Kennedy saying, "I could not be more excited about Lupita and Gwendoline joining the cast of Episode VII. It's thrilling to see this extraordinarily talented ensemble taking shape." But not as thrilling as seeing lightsaber nunchuks would be. Please, give Lupita Nyong'o those.
