Carrie Fisher officially dusts off metal slave bikini for Star Wars VII



Break out the Halloween costumes ... and a walker: Carrie Fisher is officially back on board with the Star Wars movie franchise. The 56-year-old actress confirmed she'll appear in the upcoming Star Wars sequel.

In an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated (where all the best sci-fi news is broken), Fisher FINALLY was asked point blank if she was reprising her role of Princess Leia.

"Yes," she responded. See ... was that so hard?

But when asked how Leia is doing today, Carrie slipped back into her usual joking self.

"Elderly. She's in an intergalactic old folks' home."

Yeah, but you're still in the movie, right? Right??

Star Wars: Episode VII is tentatively set for 2015 release.
