While there’s STILL no official confirmation as to the involvement of Hamill, Ford, Fisher and co in STAR WARS EPISODE VII, by this point it’s pretty much a given. Need further proof? Over to Freddy Kruger: 

“They’ve got Mark [Hamill] in the gym, because Mark’s coming back as Luke Skywalker. They’ve got him doing his sit ups,” gossiped Robert Englund recently at a Nashville Comic Expo (Englund is buds with Hamill after working together on voice-over projects). Seems producers were concerned that his appearance was a little, um, un-Jedi like, bulk wise. To be fair, they may have had a point...

(Only because he's meant to be playing a Jedi Master, we're not having a pop!)

We’ll get to see whether Hamill's new regime (which probably doesn't involve yoga to be honest, we were just trying to be clever) paid off when STAR WARS EPISODE VII hits cinemas sometime in 2015.
