Princess Leia is making a return.
In an interview posted Wednesday with Florida's Palm Beach Illustrated, Fisher confirmed she will return as the iconic character. Other returning characters have yet to be announced, but rumors are flying. Casting for the films has not been completed.
The 56-year-old Fisher replied with a simple “yes” when asked if she would return as Leia, and joked that the Princess is now in “an intergalactic old folks' home.”
“She’s just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle,” Fisher said.
Fisher's representative may be causing a disturbance in the Force however. “Nothing has been announced,” one of Fisher’s representatives told CNN Thursday.
Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill have reportedly all been approached by Geoge Lucas about stepping back into their roles from the original films.
Walt Disney Co. is rolling out three new episodes of a "Star Wars" trilogy, with the first movie set to release in 2015. The episodes will pick up where the 1983 film “Star Wars – Return of the Jedi” left off.
J.J. Abrams, director of the acclaimed 2009 rebooting of the Star Trek sagas, will direct the first film.
