Carrie Fisher would return for “Star Wars: Episode 7”

Harrison Ford is “open” to joining “Star Wars: Episode 7,” and he’s not the only one of the original cast members ready to hop on board. Carrie Fisher has now come out to say that she’d like to have a role in the upcoming “Star Wars” movie.

“Yes, sure. Wouldn’t you?” she told TMZ when the gossip site cornered her about it.

Of course we would. If you watch the TMZ video, you’ll see that Fisher seems like she is just giving the paparazzi the answers she thinks they want, but we also don’t doubt that Fisher will be a part of the upcoming Disney “Star Wars” movie. Unlike Ford, Fisher has remained an active part in the “Star Wars” fan culture, even taking roles in projects related to the franchise like “Fanboys,” “Family Guy Presents: It’s A Trap” and “Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II.” If the opportunity arose, we have no doubt that Fisher would again play Princess Leia.

In fact, the same report that said Ford is interested in returning for “Star Wars: Episode 7” also said that Fisher and Mark Hamill were game as well. The latter two have certainly had enough time to think about it, as Hamill revealed to Entertainment Weekly last week that George Lucas told them about the future “Star Wars” movie last year.

“Last August, he asked Carrie and I to have lunch with him and we did. I thought he was going to talk about either his retirement or the ‘Star Wars’ TV series that I’ve heard about — which I don’t think we were going to be involved in anyway, because that takes place between the prequels and the ones we were in and, if Luke were in them, he’d be anywhere from a toddler to a teenager so they’d get an age-appropriate actor — or the 3-D releases,” Hamill recalled. “So when he said, ‘We decided we’re going to do ‘Episodes VII,’ ‘VIII,’ and ‘IX,” I was just gobsmacked. ‘What? Are you nuts?!’ … It’s one of those big decisions that at first seems unusual but then the more you look at it, the more it makes sense.”

“Star Wars: Episode 7” is planned to come out in 2015 and will be an original story.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
