Guys. Guys. Big, big news for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII: Not only will Harrison Ford probably be back as Han Solo, but according to the Palm Beach Illustrated, so will Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher.
The news broke when the magazine caught up with her when she was doing press rounds for her participation as keynote speaker for the "Old Bags Luncheon." Unfortunately Fisher had to step down from giving the speech due to complications from her bipolar disorder, but she spoke with the Palm Beach Illustrated before stepping down.
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.
Yes, this isn't official confirmation, but we're going to go ahead and believe it anyway because it makes us really happy inside. For all you realists out there, though: Lucasfilm and Disney have not made any official announcement as of yet. You guys must be real fun at parties.
