"We all look a little melted. It's good to see other melted people," Fisher said at the Hay festival, according to the Guardian newspaper. "And it is good to have us all in a room because it's unique. I mean, I don't suppose they have reunions for the 'Gone With The Wind' gang."

Fisher, 57, originated the role of Princess Leia in the 1977 film "Star Wars." The details of the new movie are being kept secret, including the plot. However, she joked, this time around, expect Princess Leia to lose her accent and look a little different.

"That hairdo can never really be repeated without gales of laughter," she said. "I've begged them to put the hair back on in grey and just catch me cooking with the hair, like Granny Leia."

Her character's wardrobe is going to change too. When asked if she still had Princess Leia's gold bikini, Fisher scoffed.

"Why would I keep a stupid outfit like that, so that years later I could say to you I have it?" she said. "No, I wear it on special occasions. I've got it on underneath this. I wear it always, for luck."
