Thirty years after donning those famous hair buns as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, Carrie Fisher is set to reprise her star-making role in the series’ seventh installment.
The 57-year-old also confirmed that former co-stars, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, are expected to be apart of the project as well and will report for shooting in either March or April.
“I’d like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again — but with white hair,” the actress joked to TV Guide. “I think that would be funny.”
Neither Disney nor the film’s director, J.J. Abrams, have spoken about bringing the original cast members back, but the “Super 8” director did reveal that the script for the highly anticipated installment is complete and is expected to be released on December 18, 2015.
Star Wars fans have already experienced a bit of nostalgia this month when actor Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca alongside Carrie, Harrison and Mark, posted over 100 behind-the-scenes photos from the franchise’s set, including a photo of Carrie in that infamous gold bikini!
Will Peter be joining Episode VII as well? We’ll have to wait and see!
