J. J. Abrams and crew have started filming Star Wars: Episode VII and it looks like we already may have a delay. Harrison Ford has broke his leg on the set is expected to have an 8 week recovery time. The 77 year old actor is coming back to don the space chaps as Han Solo again in the newest film but this will take a serious toll on him and Chewie doing any Kessel runs in the Millennium Falcon.

“His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly.  He’s doing well and looks forward to returning to work.”
Robert Downey Jr. went through a similar problem on the set of Iron Man 3. He was out for 6 weeks, and through the use of CGI and a stunt double, made his hiatus not as noticeable on the final film. We wish Ford a fast recovery and can’t wait to see him back in the role next Winter!
