Starwars.com have an interview up with photographer Annie Leibovitz which happens to sneak in a little reveal of what the character name is for the mysterious motion capturing wizard Andy Serkis.
Lupita Nyong’o, who plays the computer-generated pirate Maz Kanata, was photographed close-up, motion-capture trackers glittering her face as she looks slightly off camera. “I asked Lupita to get rigged up for the picture,” Leibovitz says. “That’s a look you don’t see in the film — you’re going to see what happens when they use that system to create a moving character.” It’s an image that creates a counterbalance to the character portraits, illustrating more of the process that Leibovitz admires so much. (It also just looks very, very cool.) A previously unpublished photo of Andy Serkis, also sporting mo-cap gear for his portrayal of Supreme Leader Snoke, is available here exclusively.
