According to an article appearing in Palm Beach Illustrated, Carrie Fisher has confirmed that she is on board for the next Star Wars film currently being gestated by the Disney Studios.


Ms. Fisher, who achieved fame as the fiesty Princess Leia in the original Star Wars movies, has had quite a rollercoaster of a career.  She gave a brief interview to the magazine in connection with her role as keynote speaker for the Old Bags Luncheon for the Center for Family Services, which she unfortunately had to drop out of doing due to health issues.  Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, has taken her place for the March 7th affair.

However, according to a somewhat more recent article appearing in Parallel Universe, a representative for Ms. Fisher has told CNN that the actress was "joking" regarding her comments to the Palm Beach site, and that any reports of her having signed on to the J.J. Abrams film are "premature."
