Harrison Ford Injured on Set of New “Star Wars” Movie (VIDEO)
Harrison Ford might need some more time to brush up on his Han Solo skills.
E! News is reporting that the 71-year-old actor “sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates.”
The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the news of Harrison’s injury. A source said the actor was hurt by the door of the Millennium Falcon — which we all know is Han’s famous spaceship in the original trilogy. We had hoped jumping back into the saga would be like riding a bike for Harrison, but maybe he just needs more time back on his ship.
Also returning to the upcoming J.J. Abrams movie are the original castmembers: Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. Most of the new cast are relative unknowns, with the exception of Lupita Nyong’o (fresh off her big win at the Oscars this year), Gwendoline Christie (who is busy slaying everything in sight on Game of Thrones), and Adam Driver (Lena Dunham’s onscreen, awkward boyfriend in Girls).
