First Look at Lana Condor As X-Men’s Jubilee

We couldn’t contain our excitement last month when X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer revealed that newcomer Lana Condor would be playing the teenage mutant, Jubilee. Although Jubilee was a popular character in the 90’s X-Men comics as well as the animated television show, she barely made an appearance in the previous X-Men films. It seems the tides are turning and we definitely have high hopes for a bigger Jubilee presence in the films with Condor now on board.

And even more exciting is to actually see it all come together. Filming for X-Men: Apocalypse officially began last week and thanks to social media, we were lucky enough to get a look at Condor dolled up in Jubilee’s trademark yellow jacket and the bright colors of 80’s fashion.


Condor also seems to have picked up a familiar face as a friend. Sophie Turner, most known for her role as Sansa Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones, has been casted in X-Men: Apocalypse as Jean Grey. It’s truly hard not to be excited seeing the two of them interact.

“It’s been reported that the new movie, which follows ‘X-Men: First Class’ and last year’s ‘Days of Future Past,’ is at least partially set in 1983, and Singer looks keen to evoke the fashion of the era,” The Verge points out. “Condor and Turner also sport period-appropriate dress in the new snapshot, making both Jean Grey and Jubilee – in her signature yellow jacket – look like they’ve just stepped out of an ’80s disco at Professor X’s famous school for the gifted.”
