RUMOR: Princess Leia being re-cast for Star Wars: Episode VII?

February 18th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

I hope you’re ready for another Star Wars rumor.

Jedi News are reporting that an inside source has told them that a casting call is set to take place in Soho, London for the role of Princess Leia Organa on February 26th.  

So that was unexpected. Hasn’t Carrie Fisher confirmed her involvement multiple times? The most recent being in January, when she told TV Guide she would begin work on the film in March or April.

I think there could be a case where this could possibly be true. What if Episode VII will be the first movie to feature flashbacks? 

You might be thinking spin-off films, but Kathleen Kennedy seemed to make it clear that the characters involved in the spin-offs will not cross over with the saga trilogy.
