How Might Maz Kanata Actually Look?


Indie Revolver has just reported leaked concept art of Lupita Nyong’o’s newly confirmed CGI character, Maz Kanata, who will debut on December 18, 2015 in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The character almost resembles an adult “ET” alien, except without the retractable neck and glowing finger.  The leaked character design appears to be appropriate to have not been done with practical effects like many of the other sets and props that have been released, most likely because it’s long neck and oval shaped head would be quite difficult to reproduce believably with makeup or other practical effects.

An outline of a face that looks extremely similar to the drawing can be seen very briefly in The Force Awakens trailer number two, which seems to validate Indie Revolver’s report.
