Leia, Han, and Luke to hit new 'Star Wars' set this spring

According to TV Guide, the three big stars of the original "Star Wars" trilogy plan to arrive on set for Episode VII in March or April.

It's unclear if they'll be arriving onboard the Millennium Falcon, but Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill will be hitting the set of "Star Wars Episode VII" this spring.

According to TV Guide, Fisher said that she, along with Ford and Hamill, will be arriving on set to reprise their roles as Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Luke Skywalker, respectively, in March or April.

But in a Reddit Ask Me Anything today, Hamill would not confirm his involvement in the film.

Will they look the same on-screen when the film opens in December 2015 as they did in 1977 when the original "Star Wars" debuted? Could be, albeit with updates that account for the passing of 38 years. "I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again -- but with white hair," Fisher told TV Guide. "I think that would be funny."

Recently, word has come out that Episode VII director J.J. Abrams has decided to shoot the movie on film rather than digital. Abrams also said that he'd finished the script for the hugely anticipated seventh major installment in the "Star Wars" franchise.

Update (Wednesday, 7:44 p.m. PT): This story now reflects Hamill's Wednesday Reddit Ask Me Anything.
