Carrie Fisher expects to begin filming her role in Star Wars: Episode VII this March or April

Jan. 22, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Can you believe that we still have not gotten any official confirmation on the casting of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, or Mark Hamill for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII? It seems that with filming set to commence this year that we would have heard something about the beloved cast of the original trilogy reprising their roles in J.J. Abrams mega-sequel. But, Disney seems to be holding all of their cards close and may be waiting to announce the entire cast at the same time. But, that doesn't mean the iconic stars won't accidentally spill the beans.

In a recent interview with TV Guide, Carrie Fisher let slip that she expects to start filming her part as Princess Leia this March or April alongside Ford and Hamill. She also said

"I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again — but with white hair," she says. "I think that would be funny."

Now Fisher has been known to run her mouth and is pretty damn funny, but I doubt that she would have made this comment if it weren't true. Fisher is a veteran of movies both in front and behind the camera, so I don't think this is being taken out of context. We have known that STAR WARS: EPISODE VII was going to shoot soon, this is just icing on the cake.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII hits theaters on December 18, 2015.

I dunno, take this one with a grain salt. You can put up a quote about her wanting to wear her bun hairstyle again. But you don't put up a quote regarding her own words stating she will be in front of the cameras with Ford and Hamill this April? Just seems like more conjecture that will ultimately lead nowhere.

She makes a valid point, over and over again lol. Lucas has been nothing less than a tyrant with his reign over Star Wars, passing it along to Disney has opened things up and assured us of at least getting some type of representation of our favorite characters on screen for many years to come! The Star Wars universe is a vast territory, and I'd prefer even mediocre films for years to come rather than nothing at all. But I have high hopes for JJ, if he gives even half of the reinvigoration he

And I'm not making fun. I loved Star Trek Into Darkness and the twist didn't bother me at all like some people on this website.

Star Trek Into Darkness is still my favourite 2013 summer blockbuster.

I'm getting tired of this

I really wish Carrie Fisher would just shut the hell up. This is the third time she has "confirmed" her involvement in the new movie and it will probably get retracted again. For those that are curious, Hamill did an AMA on Reddit and was asked about this. He said the only character he had heard of returning is R2-D2.

This is cool news if it's true. I would be nervous with some directors handling such iconic roles as the ones Fisher, Ford, and Hamill played, but I enjoy JJ Abrams work and I think he will do good with it.

I wouldn't have minded if Leia, Luke, and Han Solo were in minor, supporting roles. Sure, bring them back for some fan service and for nostalgia's sake. But with the apparent rewrites to the script, it seems like they'll be front and center, at least in the first film. That's a big mistake, IMO. Everyone's expecting the lovable characters that we remember from the 80's...but they're not like that anymore. They've aged, they're older, they've changed. If this ends up being as cringe-worthy as

What would possibly make you think this? There is absolutely nothing that has been confirmed about any aspect of the plot whatsoever, so I don't know what you're seeing that would indicate that. And Fisher has a history of lying about this stuff, so I wouldn't take anything she says with a brick of salt.

Not surprised

With JJ announcing the script was finally finished, I knew it was only a matter of time before shooting got under way. We should be hearing more casting news in the coming month or so.

Didn't she write an open letter 'to Princess Leia" a year or so ago regretting having ever portrayed her? ...

I guess people can change their mind, and I'm sure the money doesn't hurt either.
