Movie News - Filming for 'Star Wars Episode VII' has resumed following Harrison Ford's recovery from injury. The Hollywood icon suffered an accident on set earlier this month, which meant he had to undergo surgery on his leg and led to a postponement of filming. However, the 72-year-old actor has made a recovery and filming has restarted at Pinewood Studios in the UK, according to The Hollywood Reporter. What's more, it's been revealed that the break in filming has not caused a delay in the release of the much-hyped film, which is set to open in the UK on December 18, 2015. The film will feature the stars of the original trilogy, including Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, as well as Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew. The cast has been supplemented by the additions of Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega, Max von Sydow and Daisy Ridley. »
Not even a broken leg can keep Han Solo down. Production on Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed this week at London's Pinewood Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter, following Harrison Ford's on-set injury (allegedly involving Han Solo's Millennium Falcon) and subsequent surgery, which put the sequel on a two-month filming hiatus.
Ford, who was healed enough to take the Als Ice Bucket Challenge last week, will reprise his role in the film, along with original cast members Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. »
According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming on Star Wars Episode VII restarted earlier this week at Pinewood Studios in the UK. Harrison Ford broke his leg on the set of the movie back in June, and with Han Solo set to play a key role in the J.J. Abrams helmed movie, there was a lot of concern that the release date would have to be changed to accomodate his recovery. In case you somehow missed the news, Ford broke his leg while shooting a scene on the Millennium Falcon. The 71-year-old actor would have to undergo surgery, but he's fine now and Star Wars Episode VII is still expected to hit on December 18th, 2015. The movie also stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and newcomers to the franchise, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o and Max von Sydow. »
The production shut down for two weeks earlier this month to accommodate Ford, who underwent successful leg surgery after suffering an accident on the film set.
The break has not delayed the release date for Star Wars Episode VII, which is due to open on December 18, 2015 in the Us and the UK.

Good news for Star Wars fans – after shutting down production for several weeks in the wake of Harrison Ford’s leg injury on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, it has now been announced the filming on the eagerly-anticipated first chapter of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy has now resumed in the U.K.
Ford suffered a broken leg back in May during an accident on the Millennium Falcon set, forcing director J.J. Abrams to rejig the schedule for Episode VII, before taking a break throughout August. However, with Ford now seemingly fully recovered from his injury, it looks like the film is back on track to meet its December 2015 release date, much to the relief of fans.

Als Ice Bucket Challenge is the meme that can't be stopped. But unlike planking, or owling, or whatever came after owling, the Ibc is doing a lot of good. So far this year the Als Association has raised nearly $80 million. The uptick has been so sharp that think pieces are being written about if blending narcissism with charity has forever changed the fundraising landscape (for the better). So behold the power of this fully operational social media challenge. From Han Solo to Luke Skywalker to Chewbacca and beyond, the denizens of a galaxy far, far away are helping raise awareness for Als. The elusive Daisy Ridley performed her Ibc in the safety of the shower. Harrison Ford kept it short and sweet. Mark Hamill adorkably tried to game the system and utterly failed. Peter Mayhew brought along his wife for moral support. Awwww. Oscar Isacc allegedly had Adam Driver and »

It is a fascinating moment to be a "Star Wars" fan. Right now, there is arguably more energy being expended on all things "Star Wars" than ever before. I remember the feeling in the early days of development on what became "Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace," when there were just rumbles of a possible new film or even *Gasp!* a new trilogy of films. Hell, I remember when the Special Editions were just a rumor. I remember when a friend of mine called and said, "They're not a rumor. I have something to show you." He came by my house with a videotape, and on that videotape was the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition," the very first new "Star Wars" footage in what had been fourteen years at that point. It was mind-blowing. It made me reassess »

The upcoming animated TV series Star Wars Rebels is the first canon installment in the Star Wars franchise under Walt Disney Pictures’ watch. For that reason, it’s long been rumored that Rebels – which bridges the gap between Star Wars: Episode III and Episode IV - will include elements that lay additional groundwork for the seventh live-action Star Wars movie, arriving in 2015 (see: the latest unconfirmed Episode VII plot details and the rumored connection to Rebels).
However, the promotional campaign for Rebels has, by and large, resisted highlighting direct links between the series and either the established and/or future Star Wars mythos – save for the cameos by Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3Po and R2-D2 in the show’s trailers. Instead, the main concern of the Rebels‘ marketing has been to promote its cast of new characters – making them seem all the more appealing to the show’s younger target demographic. »

The summer blockbuster season isn't what it used to be. We no longer have to wait until July for Hollywood's epic spectacles, with studios now lining up their tentpole releases as early as March - this year we saw the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theatres before the calendar had ticked over to May.
With The Expendables 3 out in cinemas now and pretty much bringing the curtain down on the summer's biggest releases, Digital Spy has flicked back through the calendar to rank this summer's box office big guns from worst to best.
Despite an ever-expanding cast list that hoovered up Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas, Sylvester Stallone's third Expendables outing landed with more of a whimper than a bang. Franchise favourites like Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren were criminally underused, leaving us »
It’s been a busy day for Star Wars fans, what with our possible first look at the redesigned Imperial Stormtroopers and some alleged Han Solo concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII, and now we’ve got a tonne of alleged plot details for the eagerly-anticipated first instalment of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy. However, it should be noted that these come by way of rumour specialists Latino-Review and Badass Digest, so there’s also a good chance the post is pretty much spoiler free…
So, we’ve all heard the reports that Episode VII will open with Luke Skywalker’s severed hand floating through space before coming into the possession of Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who then set off on an adventure to find Luke with the help of Han Solo and Chewbacca. Well, according to Latino-Review, it turns out that Luke hasn’t just been missing since »

This morning we brought you a couple of images reportedly showing the new-look Stormtrooper designs for Star Wars: Episode VII, which made their way online via Indie Revolver, and now the site is back with some alleged concept art featuring Harrison Ford’s space scoundrel Han Solo. The second image in particular will be familiar to anyone who’s seen The Empire Strikes Back, and if genuine, it may support those earlier rumours that we’ll be heading back to Hoth in the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel. Take a look…

Apart from the odd glimpse here and there, J.J. Abrams has been keeping Star Wars Episode VII safely contained within his Mystery Box. What we have seen so far though certainly points to the Star Trek director taking inspiration from original trilogy production concepts by Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston.
The following images – which are apparently the new Stormtrooper designs from the upcoming Star Wars trilogy which kicks off with Episode VII on December 18th – are another good indication of that, and this new look for the Imperial Forces seems to blend both the classic design with a modern twist which should work perfectly.
The final image is said to be either an updated version of the Snowtrooper’s last seen on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back, though there has also been speculation that it could be a Jungle Trooper.

Last week artist Tom Hodges posted a sketch of what he said was the redesigned Stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars: Episode VII, and now the website Indie Revolver is claiming to have got its hands on a couple of images showing the new-look, Ralph McQuarrie-esque Stormtrooper, along with another design which is allegedly being referred to as the ‘Jungle Trooper’. Check them out…
Update – Here’s another look…

If you were concerned that Harrison Ford’s injury could potentially delay the planned release of Star Wars: Episode VII in December of next year, then you’ll no doubt be delighted to hear that the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel is to resume filming later this month.
THR is reporting that production had been delayed for a fortnight owing to Ford’s broken leg, which he suffered during an on-set accident on the Millennium Falcon. However, Ford was out and about in Hollywood on Monday at the premiere of The Expendables 3, and is reportedly ready to resume work on the eagerly-anticpated first chapter of Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy.

Star Wars VII was hit with a slight problem back in June when returning star Harrison Ford broke his leg whilst on set. It was reported that the actor would be out of commission for eight weeks. In the blink of an eye though those eight weeks gone, and filming is set to recommence later this month.
In a bid to keep the project on schedule director J. J Abrams had to shuffle filming around as Ford’s alter-ego Han Solo is rumoured to have a very pivotal role in the upcoming franchise re-jigger. The entire production has just been on a fortnight long break but now that Ford seems in good health – he attended the star-studded Expendables 3 premiere in Hollywood on Monday – it would seem like its back to work for the entire team. Let’s just hope he’s a little more careful this time around.
