Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Poster

Lupita Nyong'o: Maz Kanata



  • Maz Kanata : Han Solo!

    [all music and conversations stop] 

    Han Solo : [softly]  Oh, boy.


    Han Solo : Hey, Maz.

    [music and conversations start up again] 

    Maz Kanata : Where's my boyfriend?

    Han Solo : Chewie's working on the Falcon.

    Maz Kanata : I like that Wookiee.

  • Maz Kanata : [to Rey]  That lightsaber was Luke's. And his father's before him. And now, it calls to you.

  • Maz Kanata : [to Finn]  If you live long enough, you see the same eyes in different people. I'm looking at the eyes of a man who wants to run.

    Finn : You don't know a thing about me. Where I'm from. What I've seen. You don't know the First Order like I do. They'll slaughter us. We all need to run.

    Maz Kanata : Hmm.

  • Maz Kanata : Dear child. I see your eyes. You already know the truth. Whomever you're waiting for on Jakku... they're never coming back... But... there's someone who still could.

    Rey : Luke.

    Maz Kanata : The belonging you seek is not behind you... it is ahead. I am no Jedi, but I know the Force. It moves through and surrounds every living thing. Close your eyes... Feel it... The light... it's always been there. It will guide you. The saber. Take it.

    Rey : I'm never touching that thing again. I don't want any part of this.

  • Maz Kanata : I've had this for ages. Kept it locked away.

    [hands Solo Luke's light saber] 

    Han Solo : Where did you get that?

    Maz Kanata : A good question - for another time. Take it. Find your friend.

  • Rey : What fight?

    Maz Kanata : The only fight. Against the dark side. Through the ages, I've seen evil take many forms. The Sith. The Empire. Today, it is the First Order. Their shadow's spreading across the galaxy. We must face them. Fight them! All of us.

  • Maz Kanata : Who's the girl?
