Carrie Fisher is returning to her role as Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars Episode VII. In preparation for her return to a galaxy far, far away, Fisher lost 40 pounds, according to her mother, the actress Debbie Reynolds. Reynolds, who is known for her Hollywood auctions, revealed this during an interview with Extra about her final auction. "She came down," said Reynolds, "and she says, 'Mother, I've been asked, we're going to do another Star Wars. She and Harrison, everybody, the original cast. They're in London now. She's very excited about it. She's been on a diet ever since, because you have to be up to par. So she looks terrific, she's lost 40 pounds, and she's very excited as we all are because we all love Star Wars." Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill will all join new cast members in Star Wars Episode VII, set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi. The film comes to theaters December 18, 2015.
