Carrie Fisher Confirms Her Return As Princess Leia In STAR WARS EPISODE VII

Fisher has been dismissive of any questions about her possible involvement in the new trilogy in the past, but in a new interview she is once again asked if she'll return as Leia, and her response couldn't be any more cut-and-dry..

We've heard from Carrie Fisher on a couple of occasions regarding her possible reprisal of Princess Leia in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Wars flick and its follow-ups, but she's always been a bit sarcy about it and seemed hesitant to give a straight answer. Well in an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated the actress finally just comes out with it..

Q: 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?

A: Yes.

Notice that's a "yes" to reprising the role, not a "yeah I'm in talks" or a "yes, there's been meetings." - Fisher flat out states she'll be back to play Leia again. Unfortunately she doesn't elaborate any! However she does reveal what she thinks Leia is like today though: "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." Click the link below for the interview in full.
