Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill & Carrie Fisher To Reprise Roles In Upcoming ‘Star Wars’ Sequel

The original core cast of Star Wars appears to be coming back for its sequel.



Since Disney acquired LucasFilm Ltd., and the Star Wars franchise, several news leaks and rumors about the upcoming, new installment of the movie series have surfaced without any substantiation.  The latest leak/rumor is that that original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are set to return to reprise their roles as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Pincess Leia, respectively.

Apparently, the news isn’t supposed to be out yet, but LucasFilm founder, George Lucas, let the cat out of the bag during a recent interview with Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek and seemed to realize he had made a mistake.

He confirmed that the actors will reclaim their famed characters in Star Wars: Episode VII. “We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison — or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation. So I called them to say, ‘Look, this is what’s going on,’ ” Lucas said.

He would backtrack though, saying, “Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them.”

“I won’t say whether the negotiations were successful or not,” he’d add.

The upcoming Star Wars installment would be the first under the Disney umbrella.

According to Yahoo! Movies, Fisher also confirmed she was returning as Leia only to take it back.  Her rep told CNN that “She was joking… Nothing has been announced.”
