Carrie Fisher Teases The Return Of The Iron Bikini For New Star Wars Movie

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?

This far?:

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?
