Would we be having this same convo about a guy getting covered up by CGI?
I've known people who thought it was a shame Roddy McDowall was covered up by foam latex in the orginal Planet of The Apes series. Arguably one of his greatest roles.
And until we actually see Lupita's character on screen, speculating whether or not it's another Jar Jar type character is a little premature.
Where were you in '77?
