Harrison Ford hurt in Millennium Falcon-related injury on Star Wars set

1 year agoby:

Go ahead and say it: I have a bad feeling about this.

Harrison Ford, reprising his famous role of Han Solo in J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, hurt his ankle on set and was taken to a local hospital. While it does not appear serious, Ford will be out of commission for an unspecified length of time during which filming on the highly anticipated movie will continue. Ironically or not, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the injury was sustained due to an issue with the door on the Millennium Falcon. The Falcon being included in the new film was part of rumors for a long time and officially confirmed by a tweet from Abrams himself last week.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII has been under highly scrutinized security since filming began several weeks ago with some images leaking online. To this day we still do not have an official plot synopsis or character listing for the film. Abrams' trademark secrecy seems to be working but for how long we do not know. Hopefully we will learn more soon.

In STAR WARS-related news, Disney's first STAR WARS tie in product now has an official release date. Disney Channel series PHINEAS AND FERB will air a STAR WARS special episode on July 26th that features the titular brothers in a parallel universe that drops them into the events from A NEW HOPE. MYTHBUSTERS Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman will guest star as officers of the Galactic Empire while Simon Pegg will voice a Rebel officer and C-3PO as well. Pegg was the subject of rumors himself for a secret role in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Coincidence?

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII hits theaters on December 18, 2015.

Oddly prescient words from the Princess.

+1 for that reference! I remember actually reading a fairly serious forum discussion about whether or not he really did staple the hat to his head.

Before they began filming, J.J. tried to tell him what the odds were of getting injured but Harrison wouldn't let him.

Fan boys are going to be pissed when they see he phoned in this role too. I'm starting to think Ford hates doing movies but owes the mob money or something.

Doesn't sound like a huge problem

Viggo Mortensen broke his toe in filming THE TWO TOWERS and he kept going with few problems. I can see a lot of Harrison Ford's scenes taking place when he's sitting in a chair, though.

I don't know what's with the thumbs down. I love Han and Harrison even more. Why would I want him injured and possibly out for a while?

Actually, there were a lot of sets built for the prequels. A lot of people worked very hard on constructing those, so I think that we should maybe respect that. Just a thought.
