Carrie Fisher Talks STAR WARS: EPISODE VII
Carrie Fisher was asked at the Calgary Comic Expo this weekend if she would return to the Star Wars franchise in 2015's Episode VII, and her response was an interesting one. Read on for details!
Carrie Fisher, who is best known for her role as Princess Leia in the three original Star Wars films, has apparently confirmed that she would be appearing in the seventh film, which will be released in 2015. The Calgary Herold reports:
"Yes, Carrie Fisher confirmed to a rapt audience at the BMO Centre Saturday afternoon that she will in fact be reprising her most famous role of Princess Leia in a new series of Star Wars films, which will be produced by Disney. She was the first of the original cast members to announce her participation back in March, although apparently jumped the gun. Her publicist later said she was joking and that nothing had been confirmed.
However, it seems to be a done deal now. But for fans looking for a sneak-peek of what to expect in the new film, Fisher didn’t offer many juicy details."
Carrie also talked about training and Disney:
“I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before,” she said during a talk at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. “I’m glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape. So I’m really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything.”
So do you guys want to see Carrie Fisher return to the role of Princess Leia? Comment below and let me know!
