May the Force Be With Them

Ford, Hamill, Fisher Returning to 'Star Wars'

Here we go again. In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, Star Wars director George Lucas said his iconic trio—Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia—will return to the big screen in Star Wars: Episode VII. That means 70-year-old Harrison Ford, 61-year-old Mark Hamill, and 56-year old Carrie Fisher are going back to a time long, long ago and a galaxy far, far away. The deal had apparently been worked out even before Lucasfilm’s $4 billion purchase by Disney. “Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do,” said Lucas. Disney, meanwhile, would not confirm: “George couldn’t say whether they were signed or not and neither can we. As Yoda said, ‘Always in motion is the future.’ Stay tuned.”
