Lupita Nyong’o to Star in Disney Movie

Over the weekend, Lupita Nyong’o made an appearance at Disney’s D23 event to promote three new projects including Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Jungle Book and Queen of Katwe.

While her Star Wars role is no shocker, the other two are surprises.

In The Jungle Book, the 32-year-old will play the mother of wolf Raksha. As for Queen of Katwe, she’ll star alongside David Oyelowo in a real life story about a Ugandan girl who has her eyes set on becoming a champion chess player.

Lupita has a busy year ahead of her. All of the projects are slated for 2016 releases.
