Aren't You A Little Short For A Stormtrooper?

Carrie Fisher Will Reportedly Be Filming Star Wars: Episode VII In London For Six Months

What you are about to read is based entirely in hearsay. However, it is also about Star Wars. I think we’re all willing to allow hearsay where Star Wars is concerned.

Follow me, here: Carrie Fisher will be appearing in an episode of the FXX comedy series Legit. The star of that show, Jim Jefferies, was a guest on Sirius XM’s Opie and Anthony Show. There, he told the show’s hosts what Fisher had told him about her upcoming filming schedule.

Carrie Fisher Mentions Getting In Shape For Star Wars VII, We Can’t Tell If She’s Joking

“I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before. 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.”Carrie Fisher speaking to and audience at the BMO Centre via the Calgary Herald.

A few months ago, Fisher seemingly spilled the beans about her involvement in the next Star Wars trilogy then her publicist spoke up to tell us she was only joking. But George Lucas went on record to say she’d basically been signed so we were extra confused. Disney CEO Bob Iger at least admitted there were “discussions.”

So how should we take this latest statement. Fisher is quite the comedian and obviously she was joking about being bought by Disney but them sending her a trainer seems logical if she’s expected to be physical in her role as Leia in J.J. Abrams’ film. An official announcement would be nice, Disney.

For A More Civilized Age

Fanmade Poster for Star Wars: Episode VII Makes a Movie With the Original Cast Look Pretty Awesome

Adam Schickling put together this Star Wars VII poster, and as much as I’d like the new trilogy to focus on a new set of characters and feature the old ones as cameos at most, dang if this poster doesn’t make me feel very nostalgic.

Here’s the Official Word on Hamill, Fisher, and Ford Returning to Star Wars From A Disney CEO Himself

There’s been a lot of back and forth on the involvement of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford in Disney’s planned third Star Wars trilogy. The stars say they’re open, other folks say they’re signed, other folks say there’s nothing official yet (or sometimes Carrie Fisher tells the jerk with a camera who is following her around and grilling her about Star Wars VII while she’s walking her dogs that she’s involved just to get rid of him), and the big voice missing in the conversation is Disney’s. Of course Disney doesn’t have to say anything. Why should they? We’re already talking nonstop about the movie.

But CEO Bob Iger gave some actual official information to CNBC’s Closing Bell yesterday.

Here’s What Mark Hamill Knows About Those Star Wars Sequel Casting Rumors

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about the possibility of some combination of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill showing up in the Star Wars sequels. And we’re taking those rumors with a massive boulder of salt, since there’s been nothing close to an official announcement that any of the Original Trilogy Three will be coming back. There still isn’t. But Mark Hamill said a few things to Entertainment Tonight about the possibility of Luke, Leia, and Han showing up in the sequels that made my ears perk up.

Darnit, Mark. I’m trying to keep a cool head here.
