Carrie Fisher STAR WARS promo shot

 

Palm Beach Illustrated had a discussion with Carrie Fisher, and the subject naturally and quickly turned to those nutty STAR WARS movies we've been hearing so much about lately.  

This snippet of discourse seems to confirm what we've suspected/hoped for since the initial announcement of the project came around.  

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.

More of the discussion can be found HERE.  

We recently learned that Harrison Ford would be reprising his Han Solo role in the upcoming film(s?), Billy Dee Williams has openly expressed his enthusiasm for the notion of returning as Lando Calrissian,  and Mark Hamill has mentioned being in talks on a number of occasions...so it sounds like the gang's all here.  

hugely meaningful question I have about all of these shenanigans...one I don't recall having seen anyone ask yet for some inexplicable reason...can be summed up by one simple, profoundly poignant query:  

WHAT OF WEDGE!?!?
