Postcards from the Edge [of the Universe]: Will Carrie Fisher Reprise Star Wars' Princess Leia?

Actress and author Carrie Fisher created quite the stir when she revealed that she would be donning bagel bun ear muffs and flowing white robes (or perhaps a gold bikini) once again as Princess Leia in the upcoming Star Wars movies being produced by Disney Studios. But is it true?

The actress responded with a simple "Yes" when asked if she would be part of the upcoming films expected to land in theaters by 2015 in an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated magazine. Now it seems that perhaps Fisher's famous sense of wry humor has come into play. When asked what the Princess would be like now, Fisher quipped, "Elderly. She's in an Inter-Galactic Old Folks' Home," she responded with a laugh. She continued by saying Leia would "be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle."

Now, Fisher's rep claims that she was only joking in the interview and that no contracts have been signed for her to reprise her most famous movie role. Although there have been rumors that Fisher and her erstwhile co-stars Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill have all been asked to appear in the continuation of the saga, no official announcement regarding the actor's status with the impending project has been announced. 

Perhaps Fisher-the daughter of the late crooner Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds- could be persuaded to slip back into the famous gold bikini she wore as Jabba the Hut's prisoner since losing those 30 lbs. on the Weight Watchers Diet Plan?
