George Lucas: The Whole Band's Back Together For Episode VII

By Sam Gibbs on at

We've already had Harrison Ford inked for a Han-Solo return, then Carrie Fisher said she was in with her hair buns and all, before Disney forced her to deny she'd said anything. But now this chap called 'George Lucas' has let slip that everyone's in, including Mark Hamill. What does he even know, anyway?

Lucas told Bloomberg, "we had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison -- or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation" before realising he probably shouldn't have said anything. He apparently then went on to say, "maybe I'm not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do."

So, as io9 points out, I think we can call this one as sealed, unless someone carks it. Mind you, Lucas has sold up and moved on, so maybe he's just shit stirring. Nah, not even he's that big a douche, right? [Bloomberg via io9]
