Lupita Nyong'o Joins 'Episode VII'

The actor, 62, will be at the Florida theme park for Star Wars Weekend from today until Sunday. However, his work is really just beginning: He's also preparing to shoot scenes for the new "Episode VII" film, hitting theaters next year.

"I've altered my diet. I’ve started working out. There’s that," he told the Orlando Sentinel. "But on the film itself: I toured the departments, I’ve looked at wardrobe, and I saw the creature shop. I went around and met all the cast people, saw the technicians working on some new things."

And while he said it was "wonderful" to re-unite with his former co-stars Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, Hamill added that he didn't expect to. He also never thought he'd step into Skywalker's shoes again.

"In my mind, there was a beginning, and a middle and an end for me and my association with George [Lucas]’s trilogy," he said. "It was firmly in the past. When the prequels came out, I watched from a distance, but I was totally fine."
