LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Carrie Fisher is excited about her "Star Wars" return, even if she can't say much about it.

The 57-year-old actress said she would "get in trouble" for discussing "Star Wars: Episode VII." Fisher appeared at a party Wednesday celebrating her mother, Debbie Reynolds, whose collection of Hollywood memorabilia is up for auction this weekend.

Production begins this month on Disney's "Star Wars" film by director J.J. Abrams. Fisher said it's "trippy" to make a sequel 35 years later. Fisher's last Millennium Falcon voyage was 1983's "Return of the Jedi."

The original Princess Leia did reveal that she was asked to lose weight for her upcoming role, saying "they hired me minus 35 pounds."
