The Force is back with “Star Wars: Episode VII.” The new sequel to the legendary space opera franchise is back in production now that Harrison Ford has recovered from an on-set injury.
The film, which has resumed filming at the U.K.’s Pinewood Studios, had faced a setback when Ford had a serious injury during production. According to sources, states The Hollywood Reporter, Ford broke his leg in an accident involving the Millenium Falcon, the spaceship owned by Ford’s character, Han Solo (and called a “piece of junk” by Luke Skywalker).
Ford underwent surgery and, in order to let Ford recover, the production went on a two-week break. Now, though, it’s time for Han Solo to get back into action.
Ford is starring in the film alongside “Star Wars” veterans” Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and Anthony Daniels. Newcomers to the film franchise include John Boyega, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow. The film is set 30 years after “Return of the Jedi”.
