In today's exciting update of "Will They or Won't They Make All the Nerds Happy?," Carrie Fisher said she will be in the next "Star Wars."

During an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated, Fisher was asked point-blank if she would return to play Princess Leia in "Star Wars: Episode VII."

"Yes," the actress said matter-of-factly.

OK, then.

According to E! News, Fisher then joked about what Leia would be like today. "Elderly. She's in an intergalactic old folks' home. I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle." She said Leia's still wearing "the bagel buns and the bikini, because probably she has sundowners syndrome. At sundown, she thinks that she's twentysomething. And she put it on and gets institutionalized."

Fisher was hospitalized last month after a bipolar episode on a cruise ship.

E! News followed up with Fisher's people to see if she was joking about being in the next "Star Wars" and was told they can't comment.
