After a hiatus following Harrison Ford's on-set injury, it's reported that production on Star Wars: Episode VII is up and running again...

You'll probably recall that, a couple of months ago, Harrison Ford had a little bit of an accident on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. Word from the production was that the Han Solo actor had "sustained a leg injury", which was serious enough to force a pause in production while the damage healed up.

According to The Hollywood Reporter's anonymous sources (probably Bothans, many of whom died to bring them this information), the production started up again this week at the UK's own Pinewood Studios. The Bothans also suggest that Ford managed to break his leg while working on a scene in the Millennium Falcon.

We can only speculate about the nature of a scene that would break Solo's leg in what is effectively his own (flying, space-faring) home. Was he indulging in a spot of intergalactic wrestling with Chewie? Did the pair fall out over a particularly tense game of Dejarik? The mind boggles.

The good news, however, is that Ford's tumble hasn't affected the film's release date.

Star Wars: Episode VII is out in UK cinemas on the 18th December 2015.
