Majority of the rumors and speculation about the forthcoming Star Wars: Episode VII has been about the return of the original trilogy’s main cast members, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher. Ford was the first one that was reported to have re-signed, and the actor himself has now come out and confirmed that it’s almost a done deal.
“I think it’s almost true,” said Ford of his involvement. “I’m looking forward to it. It’s not in the bag yet, but I think it’s happening.”
Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, while not confirmed yet, have already been approached, and George Lucas himself confirmed that the deals were already on the table. However, we won’t know for sure if they signed until Disney themselves announce it.
