Princess Leia’s Gold Bikini ‘Making A Comeback’ For Star Wars Episode VII As JJ Abrams Confirms John Williams For Score
Looks like Princess Leia’s gold bikini will be getting another airing as Carrie Fisher, who played the original sci-fi babe in the 1970s Star Wars trilogy has revealed she’s been sent a personal trainer ahead of the release of Star Wars: Episode VII in Summer 2015.
The actress, who caused many a teenager fantasy with the iconic bikini scene admitted she was over-joyed that Star Wars would be returning to the screens in all it’s glory.
“I’m glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape,” the 56 year-old told a Canadian Comic Book Convention according to The Sun.
“So I’m really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything.”
Disney purchased the rights to Lucasfilm for $40.5 billion on cash and stocks last October and have since enlisted Star Trek director J.J. Abrams to direct the next installment.
While being interviewed at a press conference for Star Trek Into Darkness earlier this week in Berlin, the Lost creator confirmed John Williams, famed composer, would be coming back to create the score.
“Again, for Star Wars, it’s very early days, but I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film because he was there long before I was,” he said according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Well we’re excited! John was behind the legendary original score and we’re pretty sure the movie wouldn’t be the same without the theme!
