It seems like a foregone conclusion given everything we have heard so far about the development of the new Star Wars sequel trilogy, but Princess Leia herslef, Carrie Fisher, has confirmed that she will be returning to a galaxy far, far away.
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise
Of course, Fisher has a bit of a sense of humor as to what her character would be like all these years later after defeating the evil Galactic Empire –
Elderly. She’s in an intergalactic old folks’ home. I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle.
Presumably screenwriter Michael Arndt is working away on something that will fully utilize the returning cast members as well as introducing a new generation of heroes and villains. Will the older cast be there to just hand things off to the new kids? Will the script compliment or contradict what has been established in the Expanded Universe of comics and novels? We will see.
