They’re getting the band back together! First we heard rumors via Latino Review that Harrison Ford was planning to reprise his role as Han Solo in the 2015 Star Wars films, and now Carrie Fisher has officially confirmed that she’ll be coming back as Princess Leia.
Fisher spilled the beans in an interview with Jennifer Pratt of Palm Beach Illustrated. Check it out: it’s pretty funny.
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.
And still wearing the bagel buns?
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.
