Carrie Fisher Will Return as Princess Leia in New 'Star Wars' Film


Carrie Fisher offers some exciting news to Palm Beach Illustrated:

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.

  1. I hope it's drunk fat Carrie Fisher we get. Seeing that squeeze into Leia's gold two piece would more than make up for the unholy existence of Jar Jar Binks.

  6. Ah, some good news this morning. After spending an hour down an internet rabbit hole, arguing against idiots about gay marriage equality, I *really* needed this. Thank you Carrie Fisher :)

  9. Harrison Ford may have gone on to be a mega-movie star, but Carrie Fisher is hysterically funny. I'm glad she'll be back for a cameo or something, and pleased she's bringing her playful wit to descriptions of her role.

  10. I am hoping for the telling of the yuuzhan vong war, which has twenty somethings jacen and jaina solo as well as the deaths of chewbacca, anakin solo and the fall of coruscant, the burdens of master luke skywalker and his wife mara jade skywalker, as well as the heroism of general han solo and his wife ambassador leia organa solo. That would be awesome! Because now they are about the age of that part of the story plus it is an awesome space battle part of the long saga.

  11. I have never seen Star Wars, and I have never actually seen Carrie Fisher act, but I have read all of her books...and dear Jesus is she hilarious. Dorothy Parker Jr.

  12. She is in no condition - mentally or physically - to make movies again. Her poor sainted mother, Debbie Reynolds, is even having to fill in for her speaking arrangements.

  13. @Scooter

    That does sound amazing. So many freaking spoilers in one short paragraph! What else can you suck all the joy, suspense, and mystery out of?
