The gang is getting back together for the next Star Wars movie. We already knew Harrison Ford was going to become an old Han Solo and now, Carrie Fisher is saying that she’ll reprise her role as Princess Leia. Is this a good thing?

Carrie Fisher confirmed with the Palm Beach Illustrated that she’ll be back as Princess Leia in Episode VII and explained where she thinks her character is now, saying:

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.

Fisher joked that she would still wear “the bagel buns and the bikini” in Episode VII which, well, probably wouldn’t spawn a million Halloween costumes like it did after Return of the Jedi. Fisher had previously said she’d back in Episode VII last year but later claimed she was speaking ‘tongue in cheek’. This time feels a little more solid. So if Princess Leia is in the fold now and with Han Solo already committed, does that mean old man Luke isn’t so far behind?
