Another day, another Star Wars rumor -- though this one is more trustworthy than most.
In a new profile in Bloomberg Businessweek, George Lucas and Disney executives discuss the long road that led to the purchase of Lucasfilm in October. Of particular interest for fans of the movies is the fact that Lucas confirms that he had begun talks with original Star Wars stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford to have them return to the franchise for its new films -- before he had even begun the process of the corporate offloading.
"We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison -- or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation," Lucas told the magazine. "So I called them to say, Look, this is whats going on.' Maybe Im not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-dee-doo, but we were negotiating with them.
I wont say whether the negotiations were successful or not."

So is Carrie going to come back as Jabba the Hutt?
“Star Wars: The Search For Jenny Craig”
Well it did have a ramp.
Ford is the only one who remembers what its like to act.
Maybe they’ll film Carrie the way the obese Brando was in Apocalypse Now.
Mostly in shadows.
You had to go for the fat angle. How easy was that.
Me, I was going to go for the crazy angle.
Does that make us both bad people?
They better find Hamill some teeth.
“So is Carrie going to come back as Jabba the Hutt?”
It was reported that her boobs were taped down in the fist film to keep her from being too “curvy”.
My guess is that won’t be a problem now......
May the Poligrip be with you
with no gravity in space, those thing flopping around would scare a Mynock
You all can crack jokes but this had to be done. Replacing them with other actors wouldn’t work and Carrie Fisher is by no means fat.
They don’t need those roles at all do they?
It’s not like the Episode VII will pick up right where Episode 6 left off. It can’t UNLESS they re-cast the roles.
Which, now that you mention it. Might not be a bad idea.
This has turned into the ‘Carrie is fat’ thread. LOL Hey, she needs the work.. May the force be with her. Have at it, FReepers!
Hamill does some pretty good voice acting for cartoons. I was surprised.
Good for her. It’s the other two I worry about.
Did you see what Bruce Willis looked like in "Surrogates" And that was made 4 years ago, 4 years is pretty far back and the technology is much better now.
Yes. Also, it will keep its left turn signal on throughout the entire movie.
Last time I looked she looked like Chaz Bono and had the same kind of politics.
Has she lost some weight and some ugly?
