After two months of healing from an on-set injury, Harrison Ford is ready to resume filming Star Wars: Episode VII. His injury temporarily stopped production on the film, which die-hard fans are eager to see. Filming reportedly continued this week at Pinewood Studios in the U.K.
Reports say Ford, 72, broke his leg in an accident involving the Millennium Falcon. The Falcon is the spacecraft that his character, Han Solo, drives in the original trilogy. "His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly," Ford rep told E! back in June 2014. "He's doing well and looks forward to returning to work."
In July, Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm told the media: "while adjustments to the current production schedule are made." It would not affect the film's release. Ford was recently spotted in attendance at The Expendables 3 premiere. He walked the red carpet without any assistance. The legendary actor embraced the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in August. During the challenge he stood without the help of a cast or crutches.
The plot of Star Wars: Episode VII is top secret. The story is set 30 years after Return of the Jedi.
Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are featured in the film playing their classic roles of Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. There are some new faces to add to the cast, which include Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o as well as Oscar Isaac.
During Ford’s recovery, Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Co. have stood by the Dec. 18, 2015 release date of the movie. Photography is set to go into the mid-fall. Many of the cast members have been working on the scenes that do not include Ford.
