The great thing about this piece of news is that it gives us an excuse to re-run this classic pic of Carrie Fisher sunbaking with her stunt-double on the set of the original <i>Star Wars</i> film.

Numerous websites are this morning reporting that Carrie Fisher is set to reprise her role as Princess Leia Organa in the upcoming flick Star Wars Episode VII.

The 56-year-old actress confirmed the news and shared, “She [Princess Leia]’s in an intergalactic old folks’ home [laughs]. I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle.”

It's a little hard to tell whether she's joking, isn't it?

It has also been reported that Harrison Ford will be reprising his role as Han Solo in the J.J Abrams-directed film.

This is great news. Now we just need confirmation that Jar-Jar Binks isn't returning. Because the force is not strong with that one.
