Star Wars 7: Han and Leia to get marriage counselling?

A lot will have changed for Han Solo and Princess Leia by the time we see them in J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode 7', but could the couple be facing marriage counselling?


Well, probably not if we're being perfectly honest here but that hasn't stopped actress Carrie Fisher, who played Leia and will reportedly play her again, from joking about what she wants to happen to the couple in the new film.


Speaking at the Sydney Supernova pop culture expo and reported on by Enstars the actress said: "Hans Solo and I have been unhappily married for many years."

"We speak through the wookiees and use a translator," she continued. "I regularly say to R2 'Tell that son of a b****!'


Fisher is a notorious for joking around and even though little of what she's said about the film over the last few months has been true, it's entertaining and we love the actress for it. Sure is better than another po-faced thesp.

Taking the gag and running with it she added: "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!"


If reports are to be believed the pair's children will be the stars in Disney's new trilogy, with a recent leaked casting call looking for dual teenage leads.


Fisher and her on-screen partner in the galaxy far far away Harrison Ford are all-but confirmed to return to the series alongside Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. No official word has come from Disney or LucasFilm as of yet but something concrete could come as soon as next month.
