George Lucas Confirms Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’!

Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hammill are all confirmed to return to Star Wars 7 Neither Lucasfilm nor Disney have officially announced the return of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, or Carrie Fisher in the highly anticipated sequel Star Wars: Episode VII, which is being directed by J.J. Abrams. Rumors have been running rampant though, with all three actors pretty much being confirmed by outside sources, and in Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher's case, the actors themselves.

Today, George Lucas himself confirmed that all three actors will return to that galaxy far, far away. Even though he knows he shouldn't be saying that.

Here is what he had to say to Bloomberg, explaining that the actors were in negotiations even before Lucasfilm sold to Disney.

"We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison...Or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation...So I called them to say, 'Look, this is what's going on.'...Maybe I'm not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them...I won't say whether the negotiations were successful or not."
