Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens

Lupita Nyong’o pulled triple duty Saturday at Disney’s D23 Expo — she was promoting Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Jungle Book and The Queen of Katwe at the event — and from the looks of her Instagram she had a great time doing it.

The Oscar winner said she was “Geekin’ out” at the annual event (see above), and happily showed off posters for two of her projects in another photo.

Nyong’o also got to meet one of her Jungle Book co-stars for the first time on Saturday. “Met my #TheJungleBook son #Mowgli for the first time today, Neel Sethi,” she wrote. “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 — based on the true story of 12-year-old chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi (Nyong’o plays the young girl’s mother) — does not yet have a release date set.
