When Disney acquired Lucasfilm in the fall, the new leadership, quarterbacked by Lucasilm’s new President Kathleen Kennedy, made their intentions very clear. Star Wars is not only going to get new movies, but it’s going to continue the story crafted by George Lucas, meaning familiar universe, familiar timeline and familiar characters.

Mark Hamill confirmed that he’s in talks to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker and Harrison Ford has already reportedly signed to return as Han Solo. And if there’s a Han Solo, there’s a Princess Leia, and that holds true when the Star Wars saga returns in 2015 with Episode VII.

In a recent interview with Palm Beach Illustrated, Carrie Fisher straight-up confirmed a multitude of rumors and reports that she will be reprising her career-defining role as Leia Organa in first of many upcoming Star Wars movies.
