There are a lot of rumors flying around about "Star Wars: Episode VII," but there hasn't been a whole lot confirmed as of yet from Disney or anyone. Rumors have already been out about Darth Vader making his return, but now George Lucas came out and spilled the beans on something even bigger on Thursday, March 7, 2013, to Bloomsberg Businessweek. Lucas revealed that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill are all coming back for the sequel.
"We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison -- or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation. So I called them to say, 'Look, this is what's going on,'" Lucas (accidentally?) told Bloomberg Businessweek.
"Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them. I won't say whether the negotiations were successful or not."
J.J. Abrams will be directing the newest installment into the "Star Wars" franchise, and Disney is now in control of everything, but Lucas may have slipped up here. It's possible that Disney was even looking to reveal this big information at their "Star Wars Weekends" due to begin in May 2013.
Fisher even appeared to confirm to CNN earlier this week that she was coming back as Princess Leia, but her rep then said "she was joking." Ford and Hamill admitted to being open for a comeback so expect this "Star Wars" to be absolutely huge.
"Star Wars: Episode VII" is set to hit theaters in 2015.
