Carrie Fisher

Damn Right I Wanna Be

In the New 'Star Wars'

EXCLUSIVE

The upcoming Disney-owned "Star Wars" movie will star a much older Princess Leia ... at least if Carrie Fisher gets her way -- because the actress tells TMZ, she'd love to star in the next installment.

Carrie was at LAX yesterday when we asked if she'd accept a role in "Episode 7" -- currently in development at Disney -- and she said, "Yes. Sure. Wouldn't you?"

It would make sense too -- because "Episode 7" would follow "Return of the Jedi" in the Stars Wars timeline, meaning Leia could conceivably be a lot older in the new movie.

Carrie also said Disney low-balled George Lucas with its $4.05 billion deal -- saying he should've gotten about $500 million more.

I'm gonna be a little sad when Princess Leia trades in her steel bikini for a steel hip replacement.

Carrie Fisher in her bikini chained by Jabba is responsible for millions of rewind-buttons being worn out on VCR's and remotes across the country :D

A disney "Star Wars" movie? File under "turd sandwich". Since Georgie is done raping his own legacy, Mr. Mouse gets a turn now. They'll probably hire Michael Bay for that crap.

Probably will have a great headlining cast, and the other older people will have cameo roles. It's a great way to introduce Leia's twins, as well, since they will probably take over the next lead roles. People shouldn't really Slag anyone in that lineup either, they were stars in the most prominent Sci-Fi series in film history. And really, have any of you in fact ever accomplished as much as they did in their careers? Moreover, they are old and Carrie has bipolar disorder, which is a neurological illness. Pretty amazing she made a mark in movie history despite that. It's easy to judge and it's TMZ, the ultimate slag-fest. People should take a look at the ketchup stain and fat on their ass before posting, all I'm saying...
