Carrie Fisher to Return as Princess Leia in Star Wars Episode VII

After news broke that Harrison Ford would be reprising his role as Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars film, fans were hoping for just a little bit more. Finally, we have confirmation that Han’s main squeeze, Princess Leia, will be making her return to the series as well. In an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated, Carrie Fisher discussed what role her character may play in Star Wars Episode VII.

“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.”

All we need now is Mark Hamill. Come on, guys—let’s do this!

Star Wars Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams, is slated for a 2015 release.
