New Star Wars Film Resumes Production After Harrison Ford Injury
It’s time to fire up the engines on the Millennium Falcon (again).
Following his injury, production took a brief hiatus because Ford’s character, Han Solo, plays an integral role in the new Star Wars story. The film’s schedule also underwent significant rearrangements to work around the 72-year-old actor’s rehabilitation.
Although some had feared the worst following Ford’s injury, which was caused when a piece of the Millennium Falcon set fell and struck him, the actor has made a speedy recovery. He was seen on his feet just a few weeks later and more recently walked the red carpet for The Expendables 3 earlier this month.
Six days ago, Ford posted his own ALS ice bucket challenge video, in which his leg injury wasn’t noticeable at all. His rep tells EW that the actor has not yet started shooting his own scenes yet, but will soon.
Thankfully, the film’s Dec. 18, 2015 release date has not yet been moved despite the setback.
