According to a report out from Showbiz 411, the rumors are true and all three principal cast members from the original Star Wars trilogy–that’s Mark Hamill, Carrrie Fisher and Ford–will return as Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and Han Solo in the upcoming, J.J. Abrams-directed sequel.
The site also reports that while the characters will appear onscreen, it won’t be their story.
“Obviously this new movie won’t pick up where Return of the Jedi ended,” the site reports. “It’s some time in the future. Han, Princess Leia (with a presumably better hairstyle), and Luke Skywalker will be a lot older. Their children will be the new main characters.”
While still technically a rumor, the number of reports all saying the same thing is starting to stack up and point toward a sequel that features most if not all of the surviving original cast. Can Lando be far behind?
