Carrie Fisher says she's returning to Star Wars

There have been plenty of rumors about the original Star Wars cast returning for the Disney movies. And now it seems we have a confirmation straight from the Alderaan princess' mouth.


In an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated Carrie Fisher was asked point blank if she was returning to Star Wars and she answered quite frankly.

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?


What do you think Princess Leia is 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.


We all know anything can happen at this point, but that sounds a lot like a pretty solid confirmation.

Why do people hate Episode 1 so much? Honestly I watch it in sequence with the rest of the series at least once every year or so. Just don't get the hostility toward it. Is it really that bad? Maybe I'm just easily entertained.
