The rumors have been put to rest and it looks like we will definitely be seeing some old, familiar faces in J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII". Carrie Fisher will indeed be reprising her role as the iconic Princess Leia.
When Palm Beach Illustrated asked if her if she would be returning, she replied with a one word "yes". Well one word is all it takes, as long as it's from the horses mouth.
Fisher then went on to elaborate on what she envisions her return to the role would entail, with a sarcastic undertone, no doubt.
"Elderly. 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," said Fisher.
The rest of the original cast members including Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and Harrison Ford as Han Solo, also expressed interest in returning. One could speculate it's only a matter of time before we receive their official confirmations as well.
The wonderful Michael Arndt penned the script and by the way the pieces are all lining up, we may be returning to our favorite galaxy far, far away, the way it should be depicted.
