Not long after Luke Skywalker himself (Mark Hamill) revealed to ET that he was in talks to join the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII cast, Carrie Fisher has confirmed she will indeed dust off the gold bikini, so to speak, and reprise her role as Princess Leia.
When asked point blank by The Palm Beach Illustrated whether Luke's sister would return for the much-anticipated J.J. Abrams-directed sequel, Fisher said "yes," but warns that filmgoers should not expect a sexy return from the screen icon.
"She's in an intergalactic old folks' home," imagines Fisher of her "elderly" reprisal in Episode 7. "I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle."
