‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Resumes Production After Harrison Ford Injury

After taking a hiatus for several weeks from filming, J.J. Abrams has resumed production on “Star Wars: Episode VII” in the U.K.

The break was taken for holiday in August when many Europeans take time off, and also allowed for Harrison Ford to recover from the broken leg he suffered while filming in May. In July, Disney released a statement saying that production would pause “while adjustments to the current production schedule are made.”

Ford was recently seen at the “The Expendables 3” premiere walking without any help and looked in good shape to get back to filming. He also did his own ALS ice bucket challenge, standing on his own in shorts without a cast or crutch.
