Leia Is Back: Carrie Fisher in New Star Wars

Not just wishful thinking: Carrie Fisher says she'll be in next Star Wars

Break out the Jabba slave costumes.

Trot out the scruffy-looking jokes.

Your only hope has arrived.

Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy in a role that defined the rest of her dramatic career, told a Florida publication that she'll appear in the next edition of Star Wars.

She was asked point-blank by the Palm Beach Illustrated if she would return to play Leia in the new "Star Wars: Episode VII."

"Yes," she said.

No word on whether Fisher was joking or not.
