Are Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia set for a return in Star Wars Episode 7?

It’s unclear thus far just how far after Return Of The Jedi the planned new Star Wars trilogy will be set, although there’s no shortage of theories doing the rounds right now. But, the fact that it’ll be, in story terms, the film set the latest thus far, means that it opens the door for the return of original Star Wars trilogy characters.

In particular, we’re talking about Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia. But would Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher be interested in reprising those roles, all these years later? Well, according to Entertainment Weekly, that’d be a yes.

EW quotes one of its sources as saying “Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it, all three of them are”. That said, at this stage, he won’t press ahead with talks about Star Wars Episode 7 until there’s a script and director in place. Which makes sense.

More on this as we hear it.
