The BBC has run an update on the Star Wars: Episode VII injury to star Harrison Ford. What was once thought was a broken ankle is actually much worse. Han Solo has a broken leg!
The good news is that Ford will not miss any more than the previously announced eight weeks and that the film’s December 18, 2015 release date will still be met by director J.J. Abrams.
Ford’s publicist released a statement reflecting how her client did with his surgery to repair the leg.
"His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly," his publicist said in the statement.
"He's doing well and looks forward to returning to work."
We wish Ford a speedy recovery and can’t wait to see him back in the Star Wars: Episode VII cast alongside old mates Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher -- oh, and those newbies that you can meet below in our slideshow!
