Harrison Ford Injured On Set Of New "Star Wars" Movie

(Undated) -- Han Solo is nursing an ankle injury. Harrison Ford was rushed to a hospital Thursday after suffering a setback during filming on the set of the new "Star Wars" movie. In a statement, Disney said the 71-year-old actor was receiving care and that shooting would continue as planned while he recuperates. Perhaps offering up a small spoiler for the closely guarded movie, a source tells "The Hollywood Reporter" Ford's ankle injury was caused by the door of the "Star Wars" spacecraft the Millennium Falcon, which Ford's character Han Solo piloted in the original "Star Wars" films.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" is said to be set 30 years after the events of the last film in the original trilogy, "Return of the Jedi." The movie is on track for release in December 2015.
