Carrie Fisher Confirms She’s Back for Star Wars Episode 7

Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in Star WarsWhat are the chances J.J. Abrams, the upcoming director of “Star Wars: Episode VII” and a self-professed huge “Star Wars” fan, won’t be doing all he can to bring back the original three stars of the first trilogy? We’re talking about Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and of course, Carrie Fisher. And unless “Episode VII” takes place, say, 100 or so years after the events of “Return of the Jedi”, there’s really no logical reason not to bring all three back, if just for a cameo.

After Hamill all but said that he’s expected to reprise Luke Skywalker in the sequel, Carrie Fisher is now saying the same thing about her Princess Leia. When asked about her possible return to the sci-fi series by The Palm Beach Illustrated, Fisher answered in the affirmative, then added:

She’s in an intergalactic old folks’ home. I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle.

So is it Queen Leia now? I’m just wondering. Surely she’s graduated from Princess to Queen since the original trilogy, right?

Anyways, so what can we expect from Leia in “Episode VII”? I’m guessing less gold bikini action adventure and more motherly caring. After all, didn’t she and Han Solo hook up and had twins? I think that was the story in the comics. Or novels. Or possibly both.
