So Carrie Fisher and the Palm Beach Illustrated sat down for a quick chat. When Fisher wasn't talking about redecorating her bedroom and being "an old bag," she was seemingly point-blank confirming her participation in J.J. Abrams's new chapter of Star Wars, giving a simple "yes" to the question. Asked what Leia will be like when we next see her, Fisher opened up a little: "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 the wardrobe? "The bagel buns and the bikini, because probably she has sundowners syndrome. At sundown, she thinks that she’s twenty-something. And she puts it on and gets institutionalized." Save for when she's hashing out the rougher parts of her past, Fisher seems to be joking around — but this also isn't the first time she's talked about Star Wars: Episode VII. Pair these new comments with Mark Hamill's hope that "everybody's on board here, rather than just one," plus Harrison Ford reportedly being "open to the idea" and "upbeat about it," and a future for Luke, Leia, and Han seems bankable. Maybe. UPDATE: She was joking. Ugh.
