Carrie Fisher Confirms Return To Star Wars Franchise

Because Hollywood is full of questionable decision making, Carrie Fisher has confirmed her return to the Star Wars universe, along with Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. DON'T YOU SCREW THIS UP, JJ.

JJ [Abrams] recently revealed the script for Star Wars: Episode VII has been written and work is under way on the highly-anticipated new film.


Now Carrie has told TV Guide she, Harrison and Mark are expected to report to work in March or April. And the actress is looking forward to getting back into character as Princess Leia.

"I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again - but with white hair," she said. "I think that would be funny."

LOLOL, the old cinnamon bun hairstyle but with white hair -- that would be hilarious. And by hilarious I mean too sexy for words. You ever wonder what a shaved Chewbacca would look like? I think about that before I go to sleep at night and it gives me chills.

Thanks to PYY, who's convinced JJ knows what he's doing, which I have no choice but to believe.

    They need the old characters in the movie. Even though they are older. They must be in the movies.

    Who is the prejudiced loser running this crappy nobody website?

    should make her 'mistress' leia, now she can wear leather and be a real nasty old whore

    Why must you be forced to look at old actresses when Jennifer Lawrence

    "...if there's one woman who looks like a grown up Princess Leia, it isn't Carrie Fisher."

    How does one know what a grown up Princess Leia looks like?

    The only real frame of reference we have for what she looked like at whatever age she was in the original 3 movies is what the actress playing her looked like.

    How does one know that in that fictional universe that fictional character did not age in exactly the same way the real life actress did?

    People who originally saw her in Shampoo were probably disappointed that she no longer looked like that in the first Star Wars movie.

    But since JJ will be blinding us with lens flares throughout, it really won't matter what the original cast look like now anyway.

    Besides, wait'll you see how horribly Jar Jar has aged. : - )

    GW, enjoy the pageviews. You've apparently made the shit list of some AARP womyn's lib community.

  • Tigerh8r

    Maybe she will play Jabba's daughter.

  • JimmyThr

    I'm pretty sure this star wars movie is gonna take place in the Jacen Solo period, so that would indicate a fairly old princess Leia, since her son is in his twenties...so yeah I think the casting is being done right.

  • earthlingdave

    Ah, so you're telling me people age then? Newflash, when you're 57 you won't look like a 19 year-old. Hopefully no one will treat you with the same sexist disdain when you get there.

    ...i love how people--who clearly don't ever visit this site--flagged this article to flame, and clearly didn't fucking read it. What a bunch of jackasses. Nothing about this article is sexist. I respect women to the utmost. I believe in equality, to my core. Nothing in this article comes off as sexism to me. Call me crazy, but I feel like a lot of people below(or above, not sure how these comments work) didn't read a single word of this article other than the last sentence.

  • John Harmon

    Don't know about sexist, but certainly ageist.

  • HelenaWayneHuntress

    If you believe in equality, why do you find it acceptable for a writer to egregiously comment on an actress not looking like an older version of a character she played nearly three decades ago, but not hold her male costars to the same standards? The point that you and so many others are missing is that the writer is evaluating (and subsequently dismissing) Carrie Fisher's qualifications to get back into a character she portrayed on the basis of her age but giving her similarly ageing costars a pass on that front. That IS sexism.

  • BlakeyB52

    ...I shouldn't have to defend my comment against someone who, again, CLEARLY DID NOT READ THE ARTICLE.
    He questioned the need to bring back ALL of the previous cast. Not just Carrie Fischer.
    Beyond that, Harrison Ford has aged considerably well alongside Fischer AND Hamill. (Hamill, need I remind you, is a male.)
    It's not sexist to say that one old person looks better than another. The gender isn't even in question. Someone like Sir Patrick Stewart has CLEARLY aged better than, say, Keith Richards.Gender is never even mentioned in the article, other than in passive uses of improper nouns. (Her/she)
    The comments are the only place that gender comes into play.
    As far as qualifications, Fischer was a pretty poo actress, to be completely honest. Ford is the only one of the original 3 that really made a name for himself. (I am perfectly aware that Hamill has done extensive and impressive voice work. But few people actually are aware of that.)

  • Bah - let her lose a little weight, slap on some make-up and she'll do just fine.

  • Jeff

    You're kind of defensive when it comes to Star Wars, aren't you GW?

  • acedick72

    Why all of the serious discussion on a joke site FFS, she's just an old slut anyway.

  • Prometheus

    Wow did someone post this article somewhere else or are all the lurkers just coming out in droves to be assholes? If you actually read the damn article he is complaining about the whole original cast. And makes a statement about Fisher specifically because of the dumb ass comment she makes about her buns. And in all honesty the only one of the 3 that are even decent anymore is Ford the other two are shit now, and even in the past Fisher was shit as an actress.

  • Samantha

    Am I the only Star Wars fan reading this and agreeing because...No one likes Carrie Fisher? Nothing on her looks...just she genuinely was messed up after doing the franchise and ruined it for me?

  • Agreed. But if she was still hot we'd be all for it. Maybe I'm the asshole, but we're all thinking it.

  • Samantha

    I'm sure a lot of others are thinking that too. Be careful though, You might get attacked for saying that. Even if she was still "hot" I wouldn't want her in it. I'm very afraid it will be cheesy and they're going to make inside jokes and look at the cameras when they do it.

  • I'm with you
