Harrison Ford, Han Solo himself, sustained an injury on the set of J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII". The 71-year old actor broke his ankle and now we know what the means for the production.
Ford will be out of commission for two months while his ankle heals. It's never good hearing about injuries that occur on set but this shouldn't set the production too far back. Abrams and crew can shoot the other scenes first and then come back to film the scenes Ford is in when he returns.
In addition to Ford, other series regulars are returning including Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Peter Mayhew to name a few. They will be joined by new stars Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis and Max von Sydow.
True to Abrams' way, we don't know a whole lot about the upcoming saga. We do know that the film is supposed to take place 30 years after the events of "Return of the Jedi". How much of a role will the originals play? Only time will tell. I'm just glad Ford didn't incur a more serious injury that would derail the production in a big way.
