We’ve known for some time about Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill’s supposed return to the franchise helmed by J.J. Abrams. A few days ago Metro and some other sources also reported that Carrie and Mark are both on fitness regimes so that they will more closely resemble their former lean, hungry selves. Harrison Ford, 71 (there is nothing more annoying and clichéd than sticking ages in right after the person’s name, but you’ll pardon this exception as it is relevant) is already in good shape, but that’s hardly surprising as the demand for his talents has driven him to stay in shape. There’s a shot of Hamill over at Metro where he’s looking a mere shadow of his post-Star Wars, and quite normal, middling years bulge. Amazing! I just hope that this isn’t some kind of horrible red herring, because I’ve been waiting years for a return of the old team.

“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
