UPDATE: Carrie Fisher Reportedly Confirms Her Involvement In STAR WARS EPISODE VII

<font color="red">UPDATE:</font> 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.

Awesome! Btw, is it just me, or does she always sound like a batch...?

@Wingding: Maybe you just read things in a bitchy tone of voice.
polarkyle - 11/16/2012, 12:50 PM

For future reference:

NEVER take AAAANYTHING TheForce.Net takes as confirmed. That site has been put on blast for inaccurate reporting countless times.

BuzzKiller - 11/16/2012, 12:56 PM
I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THESE LAME ARTICLES DON'T GET TAKEN DOWN! Is this website that hard up to have postings that it's okay with whatever anyone puts up on the headlines?! Fact check and erase it if it is misleading. C'Mon MANNNNNNN!

Optimus83 - 11/16/2012, 1:19 PM
¡¡¡Good!!!. ...Princess Leia back for the galaxy far, far alone

Batz, thsi isn't "rumor". It's quote from Fisher that turned out to be just her taking the mick. The general rule is never to delete anything that can be updated because then people just wonder where the story went without an explanation.

That Wasp article on the other hand was literally just some dude on Twitter saying "hey, wonder is Sosak will be Wasp in Iron Man 3!"..and that turned into one site running with it as a "rumor" and hey presto. The thumbs up are clicked when people like a story.. doesn't always matter if it has any business being on main or not sometimes ya know?

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

NOMIS!!! You have ruined something that was very special to me! Eww!!

LOL!
MyInnerDork - 11/16/2012, 1:54 PM
Exactly why you don't believe what some dude on the street says.
Alvahnomicron - 11/16/2012, 2:27 PM
Somebody find the pic like above, where luke, Leia, and Han have the actors' old faces photoshopped in? I think it was an ad in Wizard or Toyfare...

Yet you post Rumor articles on Main based on an IMDB update (which are many times some user dude updating IMDB) and you don't see the double standard and irony in what you just said? Sure...lol
DrRockso - 11/16/2012, 2:47 PM
I choose to ignore the update. She is confirmed.
gaikinger - 11/16/2012, 3:43 PM
Great news.....now its te for her to really tighten up that body. She will never be what she wad but if she sheds some poundsge she could still get. Milfy.
XavierLehnsherr - 11/16/2012, 3:47 PM
Matt Davis for Han. Maggie Gyllenhaal for Leia. Topher Grace for Luke.

I'm sorry, but Carrie Fisher is the one part of this new Star Wars series that I could ABSOLUTELY live WITHOUT!!!

I loved, loved, loved her in the originals, as we all do, but seeing her in the public eye since then, how she is in real life, what she has become now, my view of her has turned a complete 180.

She has tarnished beyond repair, the legacy that was Princess Leia.

If anything, I say have her already be dead, or get killed at the very beginning of the Ep. VII as the motivator for the old crew to get back together and rally some young blood.
OptimusPrimeTime - 11/16/2012, 4:03 PM
Let the hazing and stoning begin. I'm ready for it.
BlazinTexan - 11/16/2012, 5:01 PM
Anyone saying they should reboot need to never ever under any circumstance Procreate.
gaikinger - 11/16/2012, 5:17 PM
They actually could kill off Lea pretty quick and roll out the daughter....Fisher is kind of a deuche.
Battabing - 11/16/2012, 7:16 PM
Is she gonna be someone's grandmother?
Battabing - 11/16/2012, 7:17 PM
None of the original stars are looking that great today. I mean, have you seen Mark Hammil lately?
Harrison Ford with his lame-ass earring?
CapWriter - 11/16/2012, 8:15 PM
She has to be in it. All the original cast has to be vague and coy at this point till the ink dries on the Disney contracts.
parkerray - 11/16/2012, 8:21 PM
Wanna lick? Psyche. And no one is more upset than Buster.
zachman2013 - 11/16/2012, 10:57 PM
Please no. Recast. Same goes for han and luke.
GhostZillaRider - 11/17/2012, 6:06 AM
You mortals are so petty...


and tiny.
PeterParker1991 - 11/17/2012, 6:01 PM
Sorry, Miss Fisher, but the "Slave Leia" days are long gone
Dunejedi - 11/17/2012, 6:40 PM
She has not handled her celebrity well. She seems to crave the spotlight, yet openly disdains her fans. If they do get her, I hope it's only for VII. I imagine her behaving like a middle aged Lindsey Lohan on set.
