Well, it looks like Carrie Fisher will be reprising her role as Princess Leia in the new Star Wars movie…but how far down memory lane will her character go?
Fisher recently teased a return to “the bagel buns and the bikini” in the J.J. Abrams-helmed “Star Wars: Episode VII.” From Palm Beach Illustrated:
Q: What do you think Princess Leia is like today?
A: 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.
Q: And still wearing the bagel buns?
A: The bagel buns and the bikini, because probably she has sundowners syndrome. At sundown, she thinks that she’s 20-something. And she puts it on and gets institutionalized.
Suddenly, this new Star Wars film becomes a whole lot more interesting to me. Can Han Solo be the Lebowskiesque stoner-dude with the earring, spiked white hair, and space-Winnebago?
