Harrison Ford Injured on Star Wars: Episode VII Set

Jun 12, 2014

Harrison Ford sustained a bad ankle injury on the set of the new Star Wars film Wednesday. Ford, who is reprising his role as Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII, was airlifted to a hospital after the incident, according to a statement from Lucasfilm parent company Disney.

"He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates," the statement reads.

The 71-year-old actor was on a set in England when a hydraulic door reportedly fell on him, according to Variety. Hopefully Ford heals quickly, since he's booked to star in two more Star Wars films, a Blade Runner sequel and Indiana Jones 5—all action-packed franchises.

Star Wars: Episode VII also stars Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill from the original films, along with series newcomers John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver. The J.J. Abrams-directed film is set to premiere on December 18, 2015.
