Harrison Ford has already said he’s interested in reprising his role as Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, and now his Star Wars co-stars Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are looking to revive their characters Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia as well, according to reports.
Hamill tells Entertainment Tonight they’ve been approached by George Lucas about returning for the upcoming film, though no contracts have been signed. Lucas assured the actors that if they didn’t want to participate, their characters would be written out of the film rather than recast, he added.
In talking with Lucas, Hamill told ET he’d prefer that the new trilogy revisit the “carefree and lighthearted and humorous” tone of the original, and that he wouldn’t commit to the project unless more of his former castmates did.
Will wheelchairs, walkers and private nurses be on hand for the aged actors during filming? Guess we will have to wait and see….
