Fisher - who plays the iconic character of Princess Leia in the franchise - has now told TMZ that she would accept a role in the new movie if it was offered.

"Yes, sure," she said. "Wouldn't you?"

Fisher also said that becoming a Disney princess is "fantastic", adding: "It made my day."

However, she suggested that Lucas should have been paid more for the Lucasfilm company, saying that it was worth $4.5bn.

Recent reports have suggested that Harrison Ford is open to reprising his role as Han Solo in Episode 7, while Matthew Vaughn is thought to be in the running to direct the movie.
