For “Star Wars: Episode VII,” director J.J. Abrams has tapped numerous members of the original trilogy cast, including Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Harrison Ford as Han Solo, and Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.
Not returning for the sequel: Princess Leia’s hair buns.
In an extensive interview with The Guardian, Fisher talked about all manner of “Star Wars” topics, including her character’s iconic look from the original film, “A New Hope.” Fisher said that fans shouldn’t bank on seeing that look again in the upcoming sequel.
“That hairdo can never really be repeated without gales of laughter,” she said. “I’ve begged them to put the hair back on in grey and just catch me cooking with the hair, like Granny Leia.”
Fisher’s lips were sealed when it comes to specific “Episode VII” details — “I would get in trouble no matter how I answer that question” — but she did weigh in on what it was like to reassemble with her old castmembers.
“We all look a little melted. It’s good to see other melted people,” she joked. “And it’s good to have us all in a room because it’s unique. I mean, I don’t suppose they have reunions for the Gone With The Wind gang.”
Fisher, Ford and Hamill are just some of the “Episode VII” cast, with newcomers including John Boyega, Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley.
“Star Wars: Episode VII” lands on December 18, 2015.
