Over the weekend, a rumor popped up that all three main cast members from the original Star Wars trilogy are set (with contracts) to return in Episode VII. Today and interview with Carrie Fisher in Palm Beach Illustrated seems to confirm that she is definitely coming back as Leia in Star Wars Episode VII:
Disney is going to continue the Star Wars saga, producing movies set to hit theaters starting in 2015. Can you confirm whether you’ll reprise the role of Princess Leia?
What do you think Princess Leia is like today?
Elderly. She’s in an intergalactic old folks’ home [laughs].
I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle.
And still wearing the bagel buns?
The bagel buns and the bikini, because probably she has sundowners syndrome. At sundown, she thinks that she’s 20-something. And she puts it on and gets institutionalized.
Sounds pretty set there. We just have to wait for official word from Lucasfilm now.
