Today we wish a happy birthday to actress Carrie Fisher who turns 57 today. Be sure to stop by Facebook or Twitter and wish her a happy birthday. While there still is not official announcement yet on whether she’ll be in Star Wars Episode, let’s keep our fingers crossed that she doesn’t get her way and end up married to Chewbacca.
Posted By: Skuldren for Roqoo Depot because the working title for Episode VII is really The Revenge of Mallatobuck.

“Han Solo and I have been unhappily married for many years, and so we speak through the wookies and use a translator. I regularly say to R2 ‘Tell that son of a bitch to ***!’ And we have children, but one of them looks a lot like Chewbacca, and we use Yoda, who’s regenerated on a planet somewhere, for marital therapy. I urge Chewie to get waxed for sure!
“There’s also a lot of shopping because there’s cool things to buy and giant planets that are shopping malls. Alderaan means shopping mall by the way. And then I start sleeping with robots, how about that?”
Of course, it is Carrie, sooo… But isn’t this a lot better than the usual no comments, or details will be released in 2014?
Thanks to Jedi News for spotting this one.

In light of George’s retirement (and sale to Disney), we thought Carrie Fisher’s speech at the AFI lifetime tribute presentation to George Lucas an appropriate Monday Funny. Enjoy Carrie at her wittiest.

Former Star Wars author Kevin J. Anderson is at Disneyland, and with the recent acquisition of Star Wars by the Mouse, we can only speculate at what sort of inside deals are going on but we’re laying our bets on new ideas for super weapons for Episode VII like The Nostril of Palpatine.

Day 3 at Star Wars Celebration VI, or in more dramatic terms, The Penultimate Day! I honestly didn’t have a whole lot on my schedule today, which was kind of nice as it gave me more time to look around and take pictures. Plus I finally got to check out the Rancho Obi-Wan Experience. However the first point on the agenda was the DK Booth. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 3…

Today Roqoo Depot wishes a very happy birthday to actress Carrie Fisher! Forever famous for her portrayal of Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, Carrie has gone on to establish herself as a successful writer with six books, three screenplays, and two plays.
Carrie was born in Beverly Hills, CA to singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds. Her parents divorced when she was two, and she attended Beverly Hills High School before going off on the road with her mom. At age 17 she appeared in the Broadway play Irene alongside her mother. That same year she attended London’s Central School of Speech and Drama. Two years later she got a part in her first film, Shampoo. It took only two more years for her to land her biggest gig ever, Star Wars.
After Star Wars she did TV, film, and even hosted Saturday Night Live with a memorable sketch as the “Beach Blanket Bimbo from Outer Space” alongside Billy Murray, Gilda Radner, John Belushi, and Dan Aykroyd. In 1980 she was in the Blues Brothers, the Broadway play Censored Scenes from King Kong, and Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
More films and plays followed, along with her first book in 1987, Postcards From the Edge which was a bestseller. She went on to movies like When Harry Met Sally, The ‘Burbs, Scream 3, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Behind the scenes she’s worked as a script doctor, a person who polishes off screenplays. She’s also done voice work as Peter Griffin’s boss Angela in Family Guy, as well as parts for Robot Chicken and Family Guy’s Star Wars specials.
Currently Carrie has a new book coming out on November 1st called Shockaholic and her play Wishful Drinking is on tour with dates available on her website. If you’d like to wish her a happy birthday, be sure to drop by her Facebook or Twitter pages.

Chris Jones from the Chicago Tribune conducted an interview with Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher the other day. The interview focuses on Carrie’s book and play “Wishful Drinking” which is available on DVD (via HBO).
Q: Among Hollywood celebrities with famously complex childhoods, you are an uncommonly good writer.
A: I fell in love with words early on. Books were my first drugs, they were a perfect escape. They’re structured, organized and they have happy endings. There is an internal life, whereas showbiz is so external. The books I liked most were novels. They make you an observer. I always was an observer.
The interview is actually kind of harsh with some cold sounding questions, however Carrie adamantly answers every one of them and some of the answers are pretty insightful. You can read the full interview here.
