The worst kept secret in Hollywood just got a little less secretive. According to Carrie Fisher, she expects to report to work on Star Wars Episode VII in March or April, reprising her role as Princess Leia. She also said that Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford will be reprising their roles as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, respectively. Her expectation of March or April is in line with today's report that the movie would begin shooting in May. The Carrie Fisher news was reported by TV Guide, as Fisher spoke about her upcoming roles in The Big Bang Theory and Legit.
Fisher joked that she'd like to once again wear Princess Leia's signature hairstyle from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. "I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again – but with white hair. I think that would be funny."
As always, we won't say that the return of the original trilogy heroes is officially confirmed until announced by The Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm, but I think we all know that it's going to be happening—and soon.
