The J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" news started to slow down for a while, after all the constant back and forth of which actors would be returning. Now Carrie Fisher, who of course portrayed Princess Leia in the original films, once again confirmed that she will be reprising her role in the next installment.

At the Calgary Comic Expo this weekend, Fisher stated:

"I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before. I'm glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape. So I'm really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything."

She also discussed what it was like to choke Jabba the Hutt to death:

"What was his name? Jabba the Hut? I always get his name mixed up with other boyfriends. Oh God, I loved doing that. You know, they ridiculously asked me if I wanted a stunt double to kill Jabba the Hut. Can you imagine? I got to saw that neck off, it was really, really fun and one of the highlights of my career."

Well there you have it folks. This does feel like a pretty solid confirmation that Fisher and the original cast including Harrison Ford as Han Solo and Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, will be returning. I'm very excited to see how this all unfolds and how Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and crew will choose to reintroduce us to those classic characters.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
