‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens': Adam Driver And Lupita Nyong'o's Characters Revealed In Vanity Fair Shoot (PICS)

‘Star Wars’ fans have been given their first glimpse at Adam Driver and Lupita Nyong’o’s ‘The Force Awakens’ characters.

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.

A third snap confirms that ‘Game Of Thrones’ star Gwendoline Christie will play a stormtrooper.

Her official character name is Captain Phasm.

The eighth film in the ‘Star Wars’ franchise will hit cinemas this December, and the recently-revealed trailer gave fans their first look at the new characters, and the old favourites making a comeback.
