Lupita Nyong’o Secretly Danced Her Way Through SDCC as the Pink Ranger

That’s it, from now on we’re just going to assume that every anonymous cosplayer at Comic-Con is really a celebrity, because it turns out Adam Savage wasn’t the only one who went incognito in San Diego. Star WarsLupita Nyong’o was also there, anonymously dancing her away across the expo floor as the Power Rangers‘ Pink Ranger.

Nyong’o shared a video on Twitter of her busting a move at last week’s SDCC, where she was dressed as the Pink Ranger, but with a white mask to hide her real identity. So yeah, if you were there and saw some mighty morphin’ dancing you were actually watching Maz Kanata herself and an Academy Award winner grooving for no reason other than it was fun.

We doubt at 1,000 years old Maz Kanata can move anywhere near that well, but now we are thinking about a Star Wars standalone prequel. The Young Maz Kanata movie would explore her time as a dancer at the hottest club on Coruscant, a place Yoda liked to frequent. It was there the two met, her a struggling artist, him a young padawan….

….We have some problems.

But Lupita Nyong’o is not one of them. Our only complaint about this is we missed an opportunity in San Diego to dance with her.

We won’t make that mistake again. At next year’s Comic-Con we’re going to ask to take pictures and dance with every anonymous cosplayer we meet. And each time we’ll just whisper, “I love your work,” just to be safe.

Were you at SDCC? Did you see the dancing Pink Ranger? If you weren’t, do you think you would have known it was her under that mask? Dance into our comments below to tell us your thoughts.
