Carrie Fisher has confirmed she will reprise her role as Princess Leia in the upcoming 'Star Wars: Episode VII', 36 years after she first donned those bagel buns.

Asked whether she'll be in the next 'Star Wars' film, directed by JJ Abrams, Fisher told Palm Beach Illustrated: "Yes".

Adding that she sees the present day Leia as: "Elderly."

"She’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," Fisher quipped.

Fisher was previously asked whether she'd take on the role that has defined her life one more time last year, on CBS daytime show 'The Talk'. She joked: "I like the idea of being Mrs. Solo, and we’ve just fought and fought and I killed him.”

Fisher is not the only star returning from the original 'Star Wars' trilogy of the 1970s and ’80s...

Mark Hamill, who starred as Luke Skywalker alongside Fisher's Princess Leia and Harrison Ford's Han Solo, recently revealed they have all been approached about the eagerly anticipated Episode 7.

He told E'ntertainment Tonight': "They're talking to us. George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we'd be interested.

"He did say that if we didn't want to do it, they wouldn't cast another actor in our parts, they would write us out. I can tell you right away that we haven't signed any contracts."

Disney bought Star Wars' maker Lucasfilm last year for more than four billion dollars.

The last 'Star Wars' trilogy, a prequel to the original films, was released from 1999 to 2005 and now Walt Disney chief executive Bob Iger has said they are working on stand-alone 'Star Wars' films - as well as the new trilogy already in the works.

  • Sam Claflin

    Forget it, everyone; it's Claflin-town. (See "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," "Snow White and The Huntsman," "Catching Fire" and his vest.)

  • Chace Crawford

    When you stop laughing about Crawford, consider that before "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope," Harrison Ford was best known for playing horndog hotshot Bob Falfa in "American Graffiti."

  • Garrett Hedlund

    Give <a href="">CinemaBlend editor Katey Rich</a> credit for this one: "Hedlund is 29 and could play younger if need be, and has both the good looks and the physicality to convincingly grow up to become Harrison Ford."

  • Dane DeHaan

    DeHaan looks like a young Leonardo DiCaprio IRL and <em>acts</em> like a young Ryan Gosling in "The Place Beyond The Pines." He's sneaky old (27), but why couldn't he grow up to be Harrison Ford, too?

  • Taylor Kitsch

    Because Josh Holloway and Nathan Fillion are too old.

  • Jeremy Jordan

    Squint and he kind of looks like Harrison Ford. (Also, thanks to the terrible "Smash" season premiere ratings, he'll have some free time on the calendar soon enough.)

  • Liam Hemsworth

    Because every list of young actors under 30 needs two Hemsworths.

  • Chris Hemsworth

    Here's No. 2.

  • Eddie Redmayne

    Eddie Redmayne looks nothing like Harrison Ford, and is so British that he probably bathes in Earl Grey. That said, the "Les Miserables" star is knocking on the door of franchise stardom: he was on the "short lists" for "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Hollywood executives want to give this guy a big shot -- and his work with the Wachowskis in "Jupiter Ascending" could be the launching pad to "Star Wars."

  • Jim Sturgess

    Find and replace on the Redmayne blurb.

  • Zachary Levi

    Call him a poor man's Redmayne. Levi has been on the cusp of fame for awhile, and -- better yet -- has instant cred with the Comic-Con crowd thanks to his role on "Chuck." Unfortunately, he might be too old to play a guy younger than Harrison Ford in "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope." (He's already 32.)

  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt

    <a href="">That scene in "(500) Days of Summer."</a>

  • Jai Courtney

    From John McClane, Jr. to young Han Solo?

  • Zac Efron

    After getting peed on by Nicole Kidman, Efron deserves a break.

  • Michael Angarano

    Not only could he pass for young Harrison Ford, but he possesses a youthful enthusiasm despite his age (25) that suits the character.

  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson

    No movie would suffer from having Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the lead. (Except maybe "Savages.")

  • Matt Lauria

    If Kitsch is busy.

  • Skylar Astin

    Real talk for one second: Skylar Astin is your next big movie star. He oozes charisma, looks the part of a space smuggler <em>and</em> gives the Han Solo movie a connection to "Pitch Perfect."

  • Shia LaBeouf

    If at first you don't succeed ...
