That's right, the female population in the Star Wars movies just doubled.

You can read the full announcement here.

I'm not familiar with these actors, but they sound good/more well known. Good news I think.

Well Gwendoline Christie wasn't that much of a surprise as they'd been looking into some of the women on Game of Thrones for Star Wars since the casting rumors began.

Lupita Nyong'o actually won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave... Not really thrilled about her but if she can bring an Oscar-worthy performance then I could live with this choice.

I honestly haven't seen enough of these two to make a solid judgement one way or another but these are certainly some unique choices.
I know if you look deep into your heart- which is currently all over that tree- you'll find a way to forgive me.

Aww, geez you look like a puppy! A blonde, eviscerated puppy!

Lupita is quite graceful in her work, so it should be exciting seeing her in this. Would be amazing to see her as a Sith.

I'm not Welsh, so it might be a fairly common name but... who goes and names their child Gwendoline?
Is Galadriel her godmother? King Arthur?

What are you more afraid of?
A weapon that could destroy you?
Or a weapon that could turn you into a monster?
