Harrison Ford has been injured on the set of Disney and LucasFilm’s new “Star Wars” movie. Disney says the 71 year-old actor was hospitalized after sustaining a bad ankle injury during filming on Wednesday. “He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care,” the statement reads.
Ford was at Pinewood studios in England when a hydraulic door reportedly fell down and hit him. He was airlifted to a hospital shortly after the incident.
The J.J. Abrams-directed “Star Wars: Episode VII,” co-starring Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, will continue shooting at Pinewood while ‘Han Solo’ gets treatment.
The new “Star Wars” movie also stars newcomers John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver and premieres in December 2015.
