Carrie Fisher will return as Leia in new “Star Wars” films

Carrie Fisher was undoubtedly noticed for her role as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy.

Recently she sat down with Palm Beach Illustrated for a Q&A session. They asked her if she could confirm her return as Leia in the new saga with Disney and she said “yes”. They also asked her what she thinks Princess Leia would be like today and if she would still be rocking the famous buns, and she answered, “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. The bagel buns and the bikini, because probably she has sundowners syndrome. At sundown, she thinks that she’s 20-something. And she puts it on and gets institutionalized.”


Rumors are still going around that Harrison Ford will return as Han Solo. So What about Mark Hamil? He said last month that George Lucas has spoken to the main cast, and he would not re-cast any of their roles if they decline to return.

The new “Star Wars” saga is to be in theaters in 2015.
