Ian McDiarmid Is Coming to Celebration Europe!

Carrie Fisher to return as Princess Leia

While this certainly not an official announcement from Disney or Lucasfilm It does bode well for the return of the “big three”.

Here’s a brief excerpt from the interview with Palm Beach Illustrated

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?

Yes.

What do you think Princess Leia is like today?

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.

I find it funny that the interview got a HUGE piece of news when Carrie confirmed these rumors  but just moved on to the next question.

No doubt there will be some sort of statement forthcoming saying that this isn’t true, it’s just a slip up… nothing to see here… move along.
