In an interview with TV Guide, Fisher casually mentions that she, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill are due to start shooting in March/April for Episode VII.
TV Guide spoke with Carrie Fisher recently about her guest appearances coming up on Legit and The Big Bang Theory.
In BBT, after failing to get tickets to SDCC, Sheldon decides to start his own convention and targets James Earl Jones as a panelist, with Fisher making an "interesting" cameo.
That's all well and good, people that watch the BBT will love it, people that don't will cry about it. We get it, some of you don't like the show. What caught my attention was the casual mention of Star Wars at the end. Telling TV Guide that herself, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are expected to report for filming in March or April for Episode VII, adding:
I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again — but with white hair, I think that would be funny."
Twice before Fisher has made comments about filming for Episode VII and both times her reps said she was joking. It's getting a bit down to the wire with the script complete and filming set to begin however, so this time, the joke excuse might not work.
