Since Disney and Lucasfilm first announced that there will be new Star Wars movies, it’s been assumed that the big three from the original trilogy will be back. We’re of course talking about Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), and though it hasn’t been officially confirmed, we’ve taken this as a forgone conclusion. What remains to be seen, however, is how big a part they will play. According to the latest Internet scuttlebutt, they could all have substantial roles, and may spend a fair amount of time filming on the London set.
Getting a straight answer out of Fisher about whether or not she’ll be in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII has been like trying to catch a greased weasel. She has indicated that she’ll be there a couple of times, and according to Australian comedian Jim Jefferies, she plans to be on set for almost half a year.
