Carrie Fisher says she’ll return as Princess Leia; Rep says she was ‘joking’

UPDATE: Sure enough, Fisher’s rep told CNN that the actress was joking: “Nothing has been announced.”

In an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated, Carrie Fishers answers the question “Can you confirm whether you’ll reprise the role of Princess Leia?” with a “Yes.” Of course, Carrie being Carrie, it continues something like this:

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.

We’ve always thought it was pretty likely that Fisher – along with Mark Hamill, who’s confirmed there are ‘talks,’ and Harrison Ford – will return, and we still do, but until we hear this from Lucasfilm, nothing is set is stone… Or fully confirmed.

After all… We’ve been here before. I recognize that tree.
