It’s not clear how Ford was injured yet, either, though Variety editor Marc Graser tweeted that he was “injured by the door of the Millennium Falcon.” Here’s hoping the iconic fighter ship doesn’t injure any other cast members as shooting continues.
Lucasfilm has provided the following statement on the situation to Entertainment Weekly:
“Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates.”
