Star Wars filming resumes
30 August, 2014, 12:00 am
Filming on the new Star Wars sequel has resumed in the UK after director J.J. Abrams stalled the project to allow Harrison Ford to fully recover from a broken leg injury sustained on the set in June (14).
Abrams and his cast and crew regrouped at Pinewood Studios earlier this week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ford broke his leg when the Millennium Falcon spacecraft his character Han Solo pilots rolled onto him.
The actor underwent surgery and production stalled earlier this month as cast and crew waited for Ford’s return.
Executives at Disney and Lucasfilm insist Ford’s injury and the shooting hiatus will not delay the film’s release. It is scheduled to hit cinemas all over the world in December, 2015.
