Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie have joined the cast of JJ Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII....

The casting process for the now-shooting Star Wars: Episode VII is clearly ongoing, as two more faces have joined the cast of JJ Abrams' film.

First up is the already-rumoured Lupita Nyong'o. She had been linked with the film previously, and earlier this year won an Oscar for her outstanding performance in Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave. She's now definitely on board.

Then, Brienne of Tarth herself, Game Of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie, has also been added to the line up. Their exact roles in the new film have not been confirmed.

Star Wars: Episode VII is out in cinemas on December 18th 2015.
