SPOILERS BELOW! DON’T READ ON IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW DETAILS ABOUT STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS!
In Star Wars: The Force Awaken’s second teaser, we get a brief glimpse of what Maz Kanata looks like. In the teaser we can only see a few details. I have a feeling at SDCC we may get a real look at Lupita Nyong’o’s new character. Indie Revolver’s look at the character is the general vibe most of the concept art had for a very long time and I like that piece a lot. But the character in the teaser looks different:
The capture from the teaser above is not unlike this piece of concept art for Maz Kanata back when she was codenamed “Rose”:
The checkmark on this piece means it was given approval and probably produced in some way. So far the pieces with checkmarks are the pieces I’ve seen in official photos for other aliens and such. Since I haven’t seen Maz in the finished film and I have seen several dozen different designs so far, I cannot say for sure if that is what Maz looks like. But upon looking at Maz in the teaser, I can see some slight design connections and think it is worth considering that the creature in the design above may be Maz.
Hopefully very soon we get a good look at Maz Kanata from the actual film!
