Carrie Fisher’s ideas for Star Wars: Episode VII

Will Han and Leia live happily ever after?

After confirming (and then denying) that she'll be appearing in 'Star Wars: Episode VII', it seems that Carrie Fisher has had some ideas for the highly-anticipated sequel…

It's been thirty years since we last saw Carrie Fisher as the feisty rebel princess… but while she's already confirmed her return in 'Episode VII', a lot has changed in the galaxy far, far away. We've seen the death of Darth Vader and the Empire destroyed at the hands of our plucky rebel pilots. But while we've been busy speculating about what's to come in the 'Star Wars' universe it looks as though Princess Leia has her own ideas…

Speaking at the Sydney Supanova pop culture expo, Carrie Fisher revealed her soap-opera-style ideas for 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.

"Han Solo and I have been unhappily married for many years," she explained. "And so we speak through the wookiees and use a translator."

Of course, C-3PO is fluent in over six million forms of communication. But even then, I'm not sure he'd get through to a woman in the midst of a relationship crisis…

"I regularly say to R2 'Tell that son of a bitch to ***!' And we have children, but one of them looks a lot like Chewbacca, and we use Yoda, who's regenerated on a planet somewhere, for marital therapy. I urge Chewie to get waxed for sure!"

I'm not sure how Han would feel about his particularly hairy offspring, but I'm sure Jeremy Kyle would have a field day.

"There's also a lot of shopping," she explains. "Because there's cool things to buy and giant planets that are shopping malls. Alderaan means shopping mall by the way. And then I start sleeping with robots, how about that?"

I'll be honest… I'm not sure that R2-D2 or C-3PO would be entirely pleased by that last bit. Although the state of some of those gonk droids, I'm sure they could do a lot worse.

Obviously, Carrie's comments are a tongue-in-cheek look ahead at what 'Episode VII' might bring. But will she be on board? After her previous confirmation (and quick retraction by her agent) I'd say it's pretty much a certainty.

What do you think of Carrie's ideas for 'Episode VII'? Do you think she's on board for the sequel trilogy? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
