The two stars’ roles in the hotly-anticipated film have been confirmed in a new Vanity Fair shoot, in which Adam and Lupita feature alongside a number of their co-stars.
As suspected, Adam will be taking on the role of a villain, Kylo Ren, and the first official snap of him in character, also features two stormtroopers.
Meanwhile, Lupita will play the CGI-rendered Maz Kanata, though it is not clear whether she’s fighting for good or evil.
