As you can see in the video, technology for motion capture and CGI is so advanced now that Nyong'o's CGI character can actually come to life as she's acting on the set.

Her Instagram note reads: 

Thank you so much for that brilliant invite to your formal.Unfortunately I'm locked in an intense staring competition with Luke Skywalker, somewhere in the middle of the galaxy, so won't be able to make it! Let me know how it goes! 


And just to show you what she's missing out on, here's the video invitation:



I guess he'll just have to carry on "making lots of friends and gaining lots of knowledge" without her.

John Boyega went to visit a small Star Wars fan at the Royal London Hospital.  As he explains in the image description he shared on Instagram, Boyega stayed in character the whole time: 

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.

He even found a Rey to hold his hand during the trip:

Daisy Ridley came across a post of her with a speech bubble suggesting that she's too skinny to be a "real woman".  She commented on the post which then got a lot of attention. 
Ridley posted a follow up on her own Instagram after her fans went after the person who posted the original.

According to the video, this 500,000 brick LEGO Death Star took 15 people 3 months to assemble it. This giant LEGO Death Star is part of a Star Wars display in the UK LEGOLAND. According to the theme park's website, the Star Wars area contains seven of the most memorable scenes from Star Wars created at a 1:20 scale.

Star Wars Sound Editor Reveals The Details Behind Those "Additional Voices"

Matthew Wood, supervising sound editor for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has just written a long, detailed list of the voices in the background of the latest Star Wars movie. He writes:

Part of Skywalker Sound’s and John Williams’ job is to complement the visuals ofStar Wars and enhance the storytelling with a rich audio soundtrack. Just as our sound designers have to create sound effects for new weapons, vehicles, and ambiences, the dialogue department will turn to voice actors to populate these new worlds. And so it was with The Force Awakens.

You may have seen a section in the credits of The Force Awakens titled “Additional Voices,” with some familiar names listed. But who or what did all those familiar names play? I’m happy to finally reveal everyone below, running through the film chronologically.

It seems like a thankless job that is pretty important to making the world of the movie seem real. Notable examples of voice contributions include:

“BLAH!” — Matthew Wood and David Acord

“Blast ‘em!” — Matthew Wood

Stormtrooper (fights Finn with riot baton): “Traitor!” (fight efforts) — David Acord

“Hey!” — David Collins

“Ma’am.” — Meredith Salenger

“Hey!” — Nigel Godrich

Very distorted commands — Devon Libran and Sam Witwer

And of course, the Kevin Smith cameo you've probably heard about by now:

Stormtrooper (reacts to incoming Resistance fighters): “We have incoming at 28.6! Move!” — Kevin Smith
