Kenya’s famous actress Lupita Nyong’o had a very busy weekend last week at the Disney Expo, she promoted her latest movies, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Jungle Book and The Queen of Katwe at the event. Rocking a serious natural Afro hair style, a tiny spiral coils that casually drops unto her face with a messy side part.
This is her first appearance since she returned from Kenya on a mission to save the Elephants. She attended the press events on Saturday 15th August 2015 in a stunning green, black & white striped Lanvin dress from the fashion label’s Resort 2016 collection.
in a comment, she also said she was “Geekin’ out” at the annual event, and happily showed off posters for both Star Wars and The Jungle Book in another pic.
Nyong’o also got to meet one of her Jungle Book co-stars for the first time at the Expo. “Met my #TheJungleBook son #Mowgli for the first time today, Neel Sethi,” she wrote on Instagram. “And we watched a teaser with the#d23expo crowd for the first time. The world is in for a TREAT.”
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives Dec. 18, while The Jungle Book will open in theaters on April 15, 2016. The Queen of Katwe does not have a release date yet.
