“I had some specific ideas about how she would work and what she would do,” JJ Abrams says to Entertainment Weekly. “I had this pitch about these goggles that she wore. Her eyes are an important aspect of her character, and you’ll see how it plays out.

“She was a pirate for a long time. She’s lived over a thousand years. She’s had this watering hole for about a century, and it’s like another bar that you’d find in a corner of the Star Wars universe… In the movie, you don’t learn these things, but I know that these are things that are coming out in other venues.”

also opened up about the character and working with Andy Serkis to bring her motion-capture performance to life.

“The biggest advice gave me,” sats Nyong’o of the mentoring she had from moviedom’s master of motion capture performance Andy Serkis, “is a motion-capture character you develop the same way as any other. You have to understand who the character is and what makes them who they are. As an actor for films, your eyes are a lot of the way you communicate anyway. So it was definitely a gift to have that be the means to her magic as a motion-capture character.”

Also, there are two new TV trailers to enjoy.
