Carrie Fisher confirms ‘Star Wars Episode VII’ return, Spring start date

Star Wars rumors are always swirling and while the original cast are considered a lock to be part of the new trilogy, it took Carrie Fisher to confirm the news for fans fever to explode.

Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia surrounded by StormtroopersDuring an interview with TV Guide about upcoming appearances on Legit and The Big Bang Theory, Fisher said she’s set to battle the Empire again in March or April with her old co-stars Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford.

“I’d like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again — but with white hair,” she told TV Guide. “I think that would be funny.”

It has been rumored that Fisher, Hamill and Ford will reprise their roles as Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, respectively, for the new J.J. Abrams-directed Star Wars movie, but their involvement has not been confirmed.

Back in April, Fisher joked about getting the role in Star Wars Episode VII and getting in shape, but the news has been mixed ever since.

Abrams has said that the movie will begin shooting in May. “That’s the current plan,” the director said this past weekend at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “We have our script and we’re full steam ahead.”

Star Wars Episode VII is set for theaters December 19, 2015.
