Jay at Indie Revolver has posted our first clear look at early concept art for Lupita Nyong’o’s character in The Force Awakens, the pirate Maz Kanata. She may be orange and with facial markings in the movie, but this is the direction they’re going in for this performance capture-based character.

Simon Kinberg on Star Wars: Rebels (plus concept art galore!)

Two weeks ago we were given a glimpse into Star Wars: Rebels with the Meet Greg Weisman video. Today we have a similar video introducing Simon Kinberg: Kinberg is a particularly important figure in this new era of Star Wars: not only is he Executive Producer on Rebels, he’s also a consultant on Episode VII…
