Lupita Nyong'o (born March 1st 1983) Lupita Nyong'o is a Mexican Kenyan movie star best known for her debut feature film '12 Years A Slave'.
Film career: Lupita Nyong'o began her career behind the camera working in production in such films as 'The Constant Gardener' and 'The Namesake'. Her first TV role was in 2009 series 'Shuga'. That year she also directed the documentary 'In My Genes'. Her breakthrough role came in Steve McQueen's '12 Years a Slave' in 2013, for which she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. The following year she appeared alongside Liam Neeson in the plane thriller 'Non-Stop'. That year she was also announced to star in 'Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens'.
Personal life: While Lupita Nyong'o was born in Mexico City but grew up in Kenya. Her parents are Dorothy and college professor Peter. She returned to Mexico as a teenager to learn Spanish at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México's Learning Center. She went to Rusinga International school where he first play role was in 'Oliver Twist'. She then enrolled at St. Mary's School in Nairobi before moving to the US and attending Hampshire College. She later went to Yale School of Drama.
'Black Panther' star Nyong'o went completely incognito at San Diego's 2017 Comic Con.
Lupita Nyong’o underwent an ingenious transformation at Comic-Con this week, disguising herself as a pink Power Ranger so effectively that nobody realised it was her.
The 34 year old star fooled onlookers and fans alike as she went undercover at the San Diego convention this year, walking around in disguise with nobody realising who she was. Such a thing has become a minor tradition at Comic-Con, with the likes of Bryan Cranston, Maisie Williams, Daniel Radcliffe and Mark Ruffalo going incognito in previous years.
The Star Wars and Queen of Katwe actress filmed herself walking through crowds and interacting with fans within the convention centre, at one point doing a dance in the middle of the arena. People even posed for selfies with the pink Power Ranger, wearing a white mask, inside the event, oblivious they were in the presence of a Hollywood star.

After the release of The Force Awakens at the end of 2015, Disney and Lucas films didn't mess around delivering the general public its first announcement/teaser for The Last Jedi back at the start of 2016. Now, well over a year later, we finally get to see some proper footage from the upcoming movie.
Many of the key cast from Star Wars: The Force Awakens will feature in The Last Jedi including Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren who famously slaughtered his much-loved father in a face to face battle that made for one of the most pivotal scenes in the history of Star Wars.
As ever with new Star Wars releases, the scrip and the story outline is one of Hollywood's most closely guarded secrets and few official details have been released to the public. We do know that the story will pick up where The Force Awakens ended with Rey going off into a mountainous setting to hunt down Luke Skywalker in a bid to train with him and learn his knowledge.

Disney's Queen of Katwe is set in the slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda where we follow Phiona Mutesi on her journey to dream big and create a better life for her and her family. Her mother Harriet works on the market selling vegetables in order to just provide enough money to keep a roof over the family's head and says to Phiona that she will be disappointed if she 'dares to dream'.
Model and actress Lupita Nyong'o chats about some of the benefits to playing a motion capture character (Lupita even spoke to Andy Serkis, the master of motion capture, for some advice) and what attracted her to the role of Moz in the first place. Speaking about the character, she says there's a great heart at the centre of the character and what might become of the role.

While the new trailer has given away little secrets, fans are freaking out in anticipation for ‘The Force Awakens’.
On Monday evening the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit and the internet nearly broke, thanks to the reactions of excited fans. The new clip is our third look at the upcoming film, but this trailer is by far the most interesting for fans, even if it gives little away.
Han Solo and Chewbacca in Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Newcomer Daisy Ridley is heavily featured as Rey, a scavenger who is thought to be the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia. The actress herself was just as emotional as the franchises’ legion of fans on Monday, while watching the trailer from her bed.
It's been thirty years since the Rebel Alliance; led by the noble Luke Skywalker, the intrepid Princess Leia and the lionhearted Han Solo; finally defeated Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire, alongside his redeemed assistant Darth Vader. The second Death Star was reduced to rubble, and the galaxy was free from a tyrannous evil once more. If only that were true. For there can never be good without evil, and sure enough another Dark Lord, Supreme Leader Snoke, has arisen to take the Emperor's place, with even more brutal plans for the civilians across the stars. But this time there are also new heroes, better equipped to deal with the ever looming terror thanks to an example set by the now ageing former Han, Luke and Leia. They are now preparing to help a vindicated former stormtrooper named Finn, an independent scavenger called Rey, and Poe Dameron who is a Resistance X-Wing pilot.

Mowgli is a human boy known as a man-cub to his peers, among which are an array of jungle beasts. Left in the jungle as a baby, he was taken in by a family of wolves who raised him as their own. However, the older he grows, the more of a threat he becomes to a formidable villain named Shere Khan; a Bengal tiger with a deep fear of fire and loathing of man. Led by an impatient black panther named Bagheera, he is sent away from his jungle home to the safety of a nearby man village, though the journey becomes less straight-forward the further they stray. Mowgli befriends a fun-loving bear named Baloo, but finds Khan is not the only jungle menace as he is set upon by a gang of monkeys led by the orangutan King Louie, and hypnotised by a vicious snake named Kaa.
