Carrie Fisher has discussed her preparations for reprising her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars Episode VII.
And the 56-year-old actress has revealed that she is being provided with a personal trainer to help her get into shape for the movie.
Speaking at the Calgary Comic Expo, she said: "I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before.
"I'm glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape.
"So I'm really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything."
And according to the Calgary Herald she also talked about her experiences making the original Star Wars trilogy - particularly the scene where she kills Jabba The Hutt.
"What was his name? Jabba The Hutt? I always get his name mixed up with other boyfriends.
"Oh God, I loved doing that. You know, they ridiculously asked me if I wanted a stunt double to kill Jabba The Hutt. Can you imagine? I got to saw that neck off, it was really, really fun and one of the highlights of my career."
Fisher is expected to be joined by Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill in the new movie, which is being directed by JJ Abrams.
