Now breaking box office records all around the planet is director J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unlike most movies where everyone knew all the twists and turns before opening day, Disney and Lucasfilm did an amazing job keeping the secrets of The Force Awakens under wraps. It’s actually a small miracle they did it considering the speed at which things leak on the internet.
Knowing the cast was extremely guarded with what they would say about their characters and the film, when I attended the recent Los Angeles press day, I decided to have fun during my TV interviews. As you’ll see during my interview with Lupita Nyong’o – who plays Maz Kanata – we talked about her best and worst day on set, whether BB-8 is a boy or a girl, her personal ranking of the Star Wars movies, if Han or Greedo shot first, and what color lightsaber would she have if he was a Jedi.

- Who shot first: Han or Greedo?
- If she was a Jedi what color lightsaber would she have?
- What’s her rank of the Star Wars movies?
- Can she do impressions? Can he do Chewbacca, Jabba and J.J. Abrams?
