Carrie Fisher talks returning for Star Wars: Episode VII

Carrie Fisher has been talking about reprising her most famous role in Star Wars: Episode VII and admits that she and her original co-stars "all look a little melted".

While talking at the Hay Festival in Wales, she admitted that, 31 years after they all worked together on Return Of The Jedi : "We all look a little melted. It's good to see other melted people.

"And it is good to have us all in a room because it's unique. I mean, I don't suppose they have reunions for the Gone With The Wind gang."

As for Leia's distinctive look, Fisher revealed that she wants the Chelsea buns back. "That hairdo can never really be repeated without gales of laughter," she says.

"I've begged them to put the hair back on in grey and just catch me cooking with the hair, like Granny Leia."

As if you needed reminding, JJ Abrams is currently hard at work on Episode VII , last seen shooting in Abu Dhabi, which is doubling for Tatooine.

Star Wars: Episode VII blasts into cinemas on 18 December 2015.
