Ford was injured after the hydraulic door of the Millennium Falcon reportedly fell and hit him on the “Star Wars” set at Pinewood Studios in England last Thursday, breaking his ankle. The actor was airlifted to hospital shortly thereafter. Thanks to the film’s ensemble cast, shooting is set to continue and “Episode VII” is expected to stay on schedule for its December 18, 2015 release.
Ford is reprising his iconic role as Han Solo in the “Star Wars” sequel, alongside fellow original cast members Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill and franchise newcomers including Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver. J.J. Abrams is directing the film.
News of Ford’s “Star Wars” break was first reported by British newspaper The Mirror. »
