Well well well, it looks like Princess Leia herself has let some tantalizing Star Wars news slip recently, and it has us jumping up and down with glee!
Carrie Fisher has recently stated that she will be reprising her role as Princess Leia in the upcoming Star Wars - Episode VII. Although, it's been a while since we've seen Leia, so she might have risen above the rank of Princess since Episode VI.
Other actors that Carrie said will be coming back include Mark Hamill who plays Jedi legend Luke Skywalker, and Harrison Ford, the man behind the quick-witted Han Solo. No word has come from Disney, so it still might be a while until it's officially confirmed, but considering George Lucas let on as much last March, it seems like it's for real. And they've been very tight-lipped when it comes to plot details.
Star Wars - Episode VII starts filming this spring, and is slated for a December 18, 2015 release. Stay tuned to KidsPickFlicks for the latest news on all things Star Wars!
