The nerd world is buzzing with rumors and possibilities of what could be with Star Wars Episode VII. Many of the talk surrounds the original cast. Carrie Fisher has been hounded by press and geeks alike with the question will she reprise her role as the infamous Princess Leia? After a recent appearance on the show The Talk (don’t worry we don’t know what it is either) we may be closer to a real answer, sort of.
When asked if she would return her response was the hilarious self deprecating alcoholic humor we’ve come to expect.
She has never been gone. As far I know, she has been with me forever!
The story she’s set for her character?
I like to think of it as ‘old Leia’, like, sway-backed old Leia the horse. I like the idea of being Mrs Solo, and we’ve just fought and fought and…I killed him, but I’m sorry. I’m sorry – that’s right, I feel badly and I probably had an affair with some general.
So maybe it’s not a real answer, but it’s better than what we’ve had so far. We would be elated to see any of the original cast return, just keep her away from the gold bikini…and the booze.
In other Star Wars news!
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly the head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy stated the company would like to produce ‘..Two or three films a year.”. Before we get all excited/nervous/angry remember that includes possible Indiana Jones flicks, original content, or if we’re lucky a sweet ass sweet Clone Wars, Pixar mashup. Whatever they decide there is nothing we can do to sway their decisions, so we might as well sit back and enjoy the ride. Splash Mountain to be specific.
