It's being rumored that Lupita Nyong'o has been cast as Asajj Ventress in Star Wars: Episode VII.

Nyong'o's name has previously surfaced and said to be attached to Star Wars.

While Lupita Nyong'o wasn't a part of the recent casting announcement, it's been said that Disney and J.J. Abrams still had at least one major female casting announcement to make.

Possibly it's Lupiya Nyong'o as Asajj Ventress, the villain from the animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Lupita Nyong'o recently won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for 12 Years A Slave.

Movie Pilot even went and created a fan-made mock-up:
