Carrie Fisher says she’ll be in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII… again.

Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford have been in and out of J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII about a dozen times now. Ford “thinks it’s happening,” George Lucas says they’re “pretty much” signed on for the upcoming sequel, and now Fisher has reiterated her involvement in the film. In November, she said she was on board, but a publicist said the comment was “tongue-in-cheek.” In March, Fisher flat out said she’ll reprise her role as Princess Leia. Speaking to fans at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, Fisher said, “I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before.”

According to the Calgary Herald, Fisher told the crowd:

“I’m glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape. So I’m really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything.”

There’s been no official word from Disney yet, but that’s not surprising. It sounds like there may be a verbal agreement, but nothing concrete.
