According to Fox News on Sunday, "Expendables 3" and "Star Wars 7's" Harrison Ford not only suffered an ankle injury at the entry door to the Millennium Falcon, but also a pelvis injury. Broken bones aren't uncommon when it comes to arduous activities in regards to filming certain action sequences, and Ford is not immune. Hopefully the force will be strong with the 71-year old Ford as he also under goes a chest x-ray which is likely the standard operating procedure for senior citizens.
Wife Callista Flockheart flew out to the location in England where the film was being shot at a British Pinewoods Studios location. Though some sources may have reported her flying out to the location gave a feeling of it being an emergency situation, it wasn't necessarily the case as Flockheart had planned on going out to see Ford anyhow.
Shooting of J.J. Abrams epic continuous George Lucas saga started shooting in the desert of Abu Dhabi and then further reached the Pinewood Studios in the UK. It seems that there is some form of realism that is to mirror the original "Star Wars" movies as filmed by Lucas and Abrams gave such a demonstration or inference in his UNICEF public service announcement. He was promoting a contest that allowed for an opportunity to fly a winner out to the set of "Star Wars" to actually be in make-up and costume. The contest hopeful will get a chance to actually be in the movie.
During the middle of the promotion, a sample tidbit of the film made its presence in what appeared to be an alien creature walking into the background carrying a cage of what could have been fauna of the region. This was a hint of how there will be more physical effects than CGI imagery. Such effects that would be synonymous of the original "Star Wars" trilogy.
"Star Wars 7" is to open in theaters come Dec. 18, 2015.
