Counting down the 289 days until The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.
In the days leading up to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, And There Came A Day will present links, images, videos, art, memories, laughs, theories and thoughts leading up to the big day… which happens to be on my birthday! ENJOY and may the Force be with you, always… or at least until 12.18.15!
HAPPY (LATE) BIRTHDAY LUPITA NYONG’O
Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o turned 32 on March 1. This Countdown would have celebrated her birthday on that very day but the death of Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy, occupied the last few days.
It is unknown who Ms. Nyong’o is playing in The Force Awakens. In fact, we don’t even know if she is a hero or villain in the movie. There is plenty of speculation, but precious few facts. What is known is that this star of 12 Years a Slave is a very talented actress whose star will only continue to rise following December’s release of Episode VII.
Happy belated birthday, Lupita!
