'Star Wars: Episode 7' - Carrie Fisher Says She's Ready to Return TooMike Sampson |
First Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill and now Princess Leia herself says she's ready to return for 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' So with Luke, Han and Leia all game for another round of 'Star Wars,' will we actually see them in the films?
Fisher was spotted in Los Angeles yesterday and was asked by TMZ if she'd be interested in returning for 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' Her answer? "Yes, sure. Wouldn't you?" Well yeah, but frankly no one's asking.
And while Hamill, Ford and now Fisher have expressed their interest in returning, it's unclear how exactly they'll be introduced in the new films. After all, Harrison Ford is 70 years old (Mark Hamill is 61 and Carrie Fisher is 56). But if you're going to make a new trilogy of 'Star Wars' films, you almost need to have Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo at least involved in some capacity to bridge the gap.
This also raises the question of what other characters from the original trilogy would return. One would think that C-3P0, R2D2, Yoda and Chewbacca would be back, but what about Lando Calrissian? Can someone track down Billy Dee Williams to see if he'd return? And what about Admiral Ackbar or another one of the Fett family?
