“Star Wars” creator George Lucas let slip that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill could be firing up their old lightsabers in “Star Wars: Episode VII.”

When asked by Bloomberg Businessweek if the original actors from the sci-fi phenomenon would return, Lucas revealed, “We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison—or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation. So I called them to say, ‘Look, this is what’s going on.’”

“Maybe I’m not supposed to say that,” he continued after a pause. “I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them.”

He added, “I won’t say whether the negotiations were successful or not.”
