UPDATE: Carrie Fisher Reportedly Confirms Her Involvement In STAR WARS EPISODE VII
The actress who portrayed 'Princess Leia' in the original Star Wars trilogy, apparently confirmed that she will return for Episode VII at a recent book signing. More after the jump...
Now, we are not really sure how reliable this report is, so take it with a grain of salt. Acccording to TheForce.net, Carrie Fisher confirmed her reprisal as 'Princess Leia' for Star Wars Episode VII, at the recent booksigning in Cherry Hill. Fisher was a big part of the original Star Wars trilogy, and she was asked in a couple of interviews whether or no she would like to return, and her answer was very optimistic and positive. Here is what she apparently said at this book signing event:
"One of our rebel readers, Curt, wrote in with the following: "I was at Carrie Fishers booksigning in Cherry Hill, NJ on November 15, and the interview she did started with the question 'Are you really going to be in a new star wars movie?' and Carrie answered quietly 'Yes....I thought it was already common knowledge.' She did not elaborate, as she probably doesn't want to crow too loudly at this point in the project development."
Again, it's probably best to wait for an official confirmation.
UPDATE: Well, that was fast. Thanks to E! Online, it seems this is not true after all:
"She hasn't confirmed anything," a rep told me this morning. "Everything you've seen has been tongue-in-cheek."
Walt Disney bought LucasFilm last month, and with that, they plan to release Episode VII in 2015, followed by a new Star Wars film every two to three years.
