Carrie Fisher to reprise role in Star Wars



Carrie Fisher has confirmed she will be reprising her iconic role as Princess Leia in JJ Abrams' Star Wars movie at Disney.

Palm Beach Illustrated recently interviewed Fisher:

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?

Yes.

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.

Don't be too surprised to see Carrie Fisher joined by her Star Wars co-stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo) for further adventures in Episode VII. What about the droids?
