'Star Wars: Episode VII' resumes filming as Harrison Ford recovers from injury

By Kevin Kryah,

Hopefully, Han Solo will be at the helm of the Millennium Falcon once again. Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed filming.

Entertainment Weekly reported that the next installment of the sci-fi franchise has officially began shooting again. The shoot is currently on track to continue through mid-fall.

Harrison Ford broke his leg on June 12 while shooting the film, which was what caused a lengthy delay in the production schedule. While reports back in June speculated that Ford would require six months of rehab, the Force was clearly with Ford.

The actor has recovered much more quickly than anticipated, as he recently walked on the red carpet at The Expendables 3 premiere with only a slight limp. He also took part in the ALS ice bucket challenge without any visible leg supports.

While Ford was recovering, Disney and Lucasfilm have held firm on the set Dec. 18, 2015 release date of the film. Throughout the summer, other cast members have been filming scenes that didn’t include Ford.
