Lupita Nyong'o Really Wants to Be In a Comedy

Lupita Nyong’o wears a Charlie Brown t-shirt while making her way through JFK Airport on Thursday (August 27) in New York City.

The 32-year-od Oscar-winning actress recently spoke to People about the type of movie she’d like to make next.

“I’m really dying to be in a comedy,” Lupita said. “I’d love to be in a love story! How about some of that?”

Lupita has three Disney movies on her schedule for the next couple years – Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, The Jungle Book, and The Queen of Katwe.

“I’ve been lucky to work so extensively with Disney,” she said. “Star Wars is another world altogether. And to be able to have that experience and be a part of that continuation of Han Solo and Luke and Leia’s journey is really a blessing, to be able to play a small part in that. And then Jungle Book is another world altogether as well.”
