Princess Leia is confirmed for Star Wars Episode 7, but actress Carrie Fisher has her own, rather far-fetched ideas for the plot. “Han Solo and I have been unhappily married for many years, and so we speak through the wookies and use a translator,” she told Oliver Pfeiffer at Sydney Supanova.
“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!
“There’s also a lot of shopping 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?”
We’ll have to wait until 2015 to see if director JJ Abrams uses any of her ideas, but it’s been rumoured that the new saga will be centered around Han and Leia’s twin Jedi teens from the Expanded Universe books, Jacen and Jaina Solo.
The casting breakdown, as reported by Bleeding Cool, includes two girls in their late teens and two 20-year-old men, two middle-aged men and a 70-something male.
