EPISODE VII: WHAT HAPPENED TO MAZ?


At the Resistance base on D'Qar, our heroes gather to watch the final piece revealed of the star map indicating the whereabouts of the self-exiled Luke Skywalker, in a scene filmed at Pinewood Studios. Note the crowd inclusion of Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata, whose scenes at the location were ultimately cut/digitally removed from the film, including the intriguing and epic moment from the second trailer for THE FORCE AWAKENS where she passes Luke's Lightsaber over to sister Leia.

Lupita confers with J.J. (holding Luke's lightsaber) during Pinewood filming.
Leia is given the lightsaber by Maz.

UPDATE: Michael Kogge's Young Readers adaptation of THE FORCE AWAKENS gives us a pleasing goodbye-for-now type scene involving Maz with Finn on Takodana, after the battle- no longer seeing the eyes of a man who wants to run, she tells Finn that he now bears the eyes of a hero.
