|Clay maquette at Pinewood for the developing character of Maz Kanata.|
Very much the Yoda-esque figure of the new sequel saga, Maz Kanata would be a welcome addition to the STAR WARS universe, with acclaimed and versatile actress Lupita Nyong'o imbuing the CGI figure of the wily space bar host with the gift of powerful wisdom and experience of the galaxy and its peoples, and with a big appreciation for a certain wookiee!
Maz will be back for some crucial revelations during the spectacular events of EPISODE VIII.
