Harrison Ford has been injured on the set of Star Wars. The actor injured his ankle on Thursday, and was taken to a local hospital.

A statement from Disney reads: "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."

A source tells THR that the actor, who reprises his role as Han Solo from the original franchise, was injured by the door of the Millennium Falcon, the spacecraft that his character pilots in the original films. The spaceship looks to be making a return in the sequel.

Glad he seems to be okay! It sucked (and really hurt) that time I missed a step and twisted my ankle a few months ago (my whole foot was literally bruised).

Tomorrow, I plan on marathoning the first trilogy since hearing all this news about the new movie and seeing gifsets on Tumblr put me in the mood to watch.

Get better soon, Harrison! I just rewatched the original Indiana Jones and Star Wars trilogies this week. Harrison was such a babe in the 80s. <333

See? Only bad things can come from these movies.

Still not a fan of the earring
jediknightmuse 12th-Jun-2014 10:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of it either.

I'd still hit it. It's Han fucking Solo. I bet he has got some knowledge in the bedroom.
donotstalk 12th-Jun-2014 07:38 pm (UTC)
That earring is terribly unattractive on Pawpaw over there.
shinagara 12th-Jun-2014 07:39 pm (UTC)
he must've hurt himself trying to flex some acting muscles he hadn't bothered using since the 90s
kidviciousdonna 12th-Jun-2014 08:20 pm (UTC)
I always imagine him being like his Morning Glory character irl
tucker 12th-Jun-2014 10:00 pm (UTC)
same tbh, he doesn't look like fun to me lol
jediknightmuse 12th-Jun-2014 10:15 pm (UTC)
Lol, I'd love to know how this happened...I'm guessing he might have tripped over something and landed the wrong way or something. Glad it doesn't seem to be super serious.
prophecypro 14th-Jun-2014 07:43 pm (UTC)
