Thirty-one years after the original Star Wars gang last graced our screens in Return of the Jedi, the trio — plus a few more familiar faces — are back to film the franchise's seventh installment. And actress Carrie Fisher had no trouble admitting their appearances have changed drastically!
"We all look a little melted. It's good to see other melted people," Carrie said of herself and co-stars Harrison Ford, 71, and Mark Hamill, 62.
"And it is good to have us all in a room because it's unique. I mean, I don't suppose they have reunions for the 'Gone With The Wind' gang" (That would be difficult, given three of the four main actors from the 1939 classic are dead.)
Having played Princess Leia three times in the series already, we assumed Carrie would be a pro, but the 57-year-old is looking forward to giving the role a fresh interpretation.
"We are doing it over again so I can get Princess Leia right this time," the actress told an audience at the Hay Festival in Wales. "I think less British. I looked a little pretentious faking the accent. It was sort of a viral accent — it came and went," she explained of her character's voice.
The original trio, as well as new cast members including Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac, are already hard at work on Episode VII, shooting in Abu Dhabi before moving to Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England.
The movie is due to open on Dec. 18, 2015, so fans will have to make due with snippets of information and the occasional on-set photo for now.
Though Carrie isn't the best at keeping secrets — she revealed early on she would be involved in the new film — the star has dropped an impressive 40 lbs. to reprise her role as the bun-wearing princess.
Film legend Debbie Reynolds, who also happens to be Carrie's mom, previously revealed, "She’s been on a diet...because you know they have to be up to par, so she looks terrific."
The proud mother also gushed, "She's very excited, as we all are, because we all love Star Wars."
