Comedian Jim Jefferies is on the latest episode of the Nerdist Podcast with Chris Hardwick. During their very enjoyable conversation Mr. Jefferies reveals that he recently sat down to record a podcast with Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher. Mr. Jefferies let slip that Ms. Fisher will be in London for six months shooting [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158).
Does this mean that Princess Leia will have a greater presence in the new movie than we initially thought? We have been lead to believe that Harrison Ford would have a central role surrounded by the new younger cast members, maybe this is evidence that the original trio will drive the action in the much anticipated sequel.
