Carrie Fisher Confirms Princess Leia Role in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII

Carrie Fisher has always just kind of dodged questions regarding her potential return as Princess Leia in J.J Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. But this time when she was asked about returning to the franchise by Palm Beach Illustrated, she gave a very clear answer...

Q: 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? 

A: Yes.

So there it is! Fisher has officially confirmed that she will be back as Princess Leia in the exciting new Star Wars film! Which basically tells us that Mark Hammill and Harrison Ford will be back as well. She does have some fun with it saying what Leia would be 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.

I guess we all figured that this was going to happen, but it's nice to see confirmation like this. It's excited to see that the gang is all coming back together! I'm so excited to see what comes of all this!
