While the full cast for Star Wars: Episode VII was revealed earlier this week, there were reports that director J.J. Abrams still had one unannounced female character to cast in the flick.

That's right! More news and casting announcements are on the way and it seems as though a few big names being purposefully withheld for the sake of surprise.

Well, some sources (whether or not actually reliable) are claiming that there's evidence to suggest 12 Years A Slave actress (and People magazine's most beautiful woman in the world right now) Lupita Nyong'o will be playing a major role in the upcoming Abrams space opera.

Word spread earlier this week that Abrams met with Nyong'o in March to discuss the possibility of her playing one of the remaining, currently un-cast roles in Episode VII. It's not too unlikely for a newcomer to be cast, since relatively unheard of Daisy Ridley was announced as a main cast member on Tuesday.

What do you guys think about this rumor? Will it come to anything? How do you think Nyong'o might fit in with the already-revealed cast members' characters? Hit me up in the comment section with your Star Wars: Episode VII thoughts!

Don't forget - Star Wars: Episode VII is set for a December 18, 2015 release.
