Carrie Fisher open to 'Star Wars' return


"Star Wars" icon Carrie Fisher is eager to make an appearance in Disney's new take on the sci-fi franchise.

Bing: George Lucas planning 'little personal films'

Creator George Lucas has sold the production company behind the phenomenally successful movie series to Disney in a deal worth a staggering $4 billion. The newly-owned Lucasfilm team will now get to work on three new films, of which the first, "Star Wars: Episode Vll," will follow 1983's "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" in the franchise's timeline.

The news has sent fans into a spin about the possible return of original stars Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford, and the actress -- who played Princess Leia -- seems willing to reprise her role. When asked if she would like to return to the series, she tells TMZ, "Yes, sure. ... Wouldn't you?"

I think Disney should cast Jessica Alba as Leia's daughter and have her runaround in the slave outfit that was made famous in Return of the Jedi.

Yes, would love to see her back in it.  And it makes sense for her to reprise the role.  It means MONEY.

Of course EVERYTHING hinges on what the writers do with the story and what the directors think is an acceptable style for story-telling.  There are a lot of ways it could go terribly wrong, and a few ways it could be right.  I think today the message being carried away from a successful "sci-fi" show are that shaky cameras and fake angst are good things - that it's always okay to overdo it on style (even if it's film school drop-out cheap tricks that are supposedly gritty) and skimp on real substance.  How about this: a story that is character driven where there isn't a reset button at the end of the film?  How about special effects we can actually look at?  Why take the visual out of visual effects?  We don't need pan-ZOOM-refocus-pan-ZOOM-track-pan-OH, WAIT, WE MISSED IT CGI shots.  We also don't need reimagining of this material - the designs, look, and concepts of the original trilogy are quite good enough.  If they weren't, why make more?
