Lupita Nyong'o is someone who's been getting more attention ever since she got hired in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and she just posted up this fun new video of her dancing around the SDCC floor in disguise as a pink Power Ranger (sort of).

Check it out:

To be honest, since Maz Kanata was the first role I ever noticed Nyong'o in, I had it in my head that she was an older middle-aged woman who looked really good for her age. Nyong'o is actually pretty spry in the video, and it's fun to see her go wacky all over the convention.


Going incognito at Comic-Con seems to be the best way for celebrities to enjoy themselves without being bothered by a crowd of fans. John Boyega did it, Daniel Radcliffe did it, and so did Jared Leto. Let's also not forget the celebrity king of cosplay, Adam Savage.

Nyong'o is currently set to appear in next year's Black Panther where she plays Nakia, a possible love interest of T'Challa. She's also set to reprise her role as Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as Episode IX.

I'm actually eager to see more of Nyong'o onscreen as herself. She's been working on some really big movies, and it's only a matter of time before she takes the center stage herself.

Black Panther comes out Feb. 16, 2018.
