NEW YORK - Carrie Fisher says she's coming back as Princess Leia for the new "Star Wars" films.

The actress confirmed that she'll return as the iconic character in an interview posted Wednesday with Florida's Palm Beach Illustrated. Casting for the films has yet to be announced, but Fisher answered a simple "yes" when asked if she would be reprising Leia.

The Walt Disney Co. is producing a new "Star Wars" trilogy to take place after George Lucas' original three space epics. J.J. Abrams is directing the first film.

The 56-year-old Fisher joked that Leia is now at "an intergalactic old folks' home."

More seriously, she imagines Leia is "just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle."

A representative for Disney didn't immediately comment.
