San Diego Comic-Con was loaded with Black Panther posters and merchandise, but you might not have noticed that a star of the film was also walking around the convention center.
No one could blame you though for missing her, but she was hiding in plain sight. Black Panther star Lupita Nyong'o happened to be on the show floor, cosplaying as her own version of the Pink Ranger from Power Rangers.
Nyong'o shared a compilation of her dancing and moving around the show floor in a full costume, including at one point gesturing towards a statue of Maz Kanata, who she played in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
After posting the video plenty of fans and vendors posted replies saying how they actually talked to her at the show and had no idea it was her.
You can watch the full video below.
You can find the descriptions for Power Rangers and Black Panther below.
"Saban's Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late."
As part of the 24-year-old global phenomenon and based on the five Rangers from the original TV series, "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,", the reimagined movie features a modern generation of Rangers including Dacre Montgomery (TV's "Stranger Things") as Jason the Red Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, and Becky G. (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, as they attempt to stop the evil and unpredictable Rita Repulsa (played by Elizabeth Banks, The Hunger Games Franchise) from destroying their city…and ultimately the world. Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") as Zordon, and Bill Hader (Finding Dory) as Alpha 5 train the Rangers to morph and master their powers as a united team.
