Guys, Princess Leia Is Going To Be In The New Star Wars



leial Once upon a time, there was a young girl filled with dreams of being a smart-talking heroine, who may have been born a princess, but ended up becoming a warrior. And this young girl, perchance, had a name an awful lot like the Princess Leia, so immediately she was drawn into the world of Star Wars, much like many other young boys and girls of her age. So, while the news that Carrie Fisher is set to revise her role as the leader of Alderaan may not be huge news yet to everyone in the world...it will be. It will be .

When interviewed for Palm Beach Illustrated, Fisher said:

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."

And still wearing the bagel buns?
"The bagel buns and the bikini, because probably she has sundowners syndrome. At sundown, she thinks that she’s 20-something. And she puts it on and gets institutionalized."

Oh Carrie, what a character. (Huffington Post)
