Star Wars 7 remains an enigma, and the addition of Oscar Winner Lupita Nyong’o to the cast has Star Wars fans continuing to speculate.
According to a report on the Latino Review, the notion that Star Wars 7 will have a female villain, and she will be a Sith, has “solidified enough through different channels to be reportable.” It also is not a giant leap to guess that Nyong’o will play that Sith.
But does Nyong’o reveal anything about her Star Wars 7 role?
So as you can see, getting info on Star Wars 7 is like trying to get Princess Leia’s “Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi” message out of R2D2. This is particularly due to the upcoming Disney film’s director, JJ Abrams, who has kept Star Wars 7 fans guessing by mocking any potential Star Wars 7 information that has been leaked. Last week’s alleged Star Wars 7 set pictures, posted by TMZ, are a case in point. Abram’s response?
Via Twitter, the Star Wars 7 director posted as “Bad Robot”:

So while the hardcore Star Wars fan may have no choice but to speculate and continue to interpret new clues, some pieces of the Star Wars 7 puzzle that continue to emerge may be more revealing…
Such as, along with knowing that Star Wars 7 has technical advantages that are light years ahead of the first Star Wars which debuted long ago in a galaxy, seemingly, far far away, we also know that some connections between the original Star Wars Episode 4 and the upcoming latest, Star Wars 7, are strong, particularly Mark Hamill’s return as Luke Skywalker.
But we will likely be saying goodbye to the original Star Wars’ baby-faced Luke! With the help of sources like slashfilm.com, it looks like the the new, most interesting man in the universe, Luke, will be sporting a BEARD in Star Wars 7!

Hamill also reflected on the enormous difference between plot spoilers emerging in the first Star Wars and Star Wars 7, telling the Orlando Sentinel:
“This is a whole different world. The first one, no one cared. The second one there was a lot of interest, but it was before the Internet…. I tell people we’re not trying to annoy you or tease you or play some massive game. Basically what the goal is to keep the surprises for the movie instead of spoiling them on the Internet.”
Star Wars Episode 7 is scheduled for release December 18, 2015.
