So according to BBC news a garage door fell and broke his ankle.

F**king stupid garage door. It destroyed my adulthood!

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I guess this will be similar to when he was injured during the filming of Temple of Doom in 1983 when he wrenched his back riding that elephant and needed surgery. He's not the main star of Episode VII so they can film plenty of stuff while he recovers, but this will probably delay the completion of the film a few months.

It's not like Han Solo is a physically demanding role like Indiana Jones. Han mainly just shoots people.

I guess they could film cockpit scenes, but anything showing him on his feet will have to wait.

They could write his ankle fracture into the script too. Stockard Channing, playing Abagail Bartlet on the West Wing in real life injured her foot while hiking - they wrote the accident into the script on the West Wing, having the First Lady have a skiing accident.

Why didn't Joker Jester Abrams personally check the garage door himself to make sure it was safe and wouldn't hurt anyone before even letting The Harrison Ford get a look at the thing? The man has proven he cares nothing about his cast, and by extension the movie, the franchise and most importantly its fans.

We have all the proof we need now to know that Episode VII will suck! It will be a steaming pile of Bantha poo-doo which will rape our childhoods. I have lost all faith in Disney and humanity.

First injury on set. Looks like Ford hurt his ankle. Link

The new's outlets make it sound like he's broken his back or had his foot chopped off.

They could, but that would suck.

Apparently Han never heard of making a stop in the Lanacane system.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Over thirty-five years later, those 13 seconds still fill me with excitement. Part of it is because everything but the lasers seems to be real. Part of it is that I care so much about the characters. Part of it is the fun, zippy tone. Part of it is just how exciting that they want the doors closed and then immediately opened. Part of it is that this is really high-spirited adventure that holds up, especially when compared to today's super-cynical times. I hope the new films have a similar feel.

I think my favorite scene in Star Wars from when I was a kid is in that section of the film, and it's the moment where Han is chasing storm-troopers while screaming like a maniac. Even ata very young age when I saw it, I remember laughing. A lot. And realizing that this movie is so fun to watch, so fun to get involved in, and made me feel like I could just kick back and enjoy everything about it.

They just need to get Rob Liefeld to direct. You'd never see anyone's feet.

Perhaps it's a sign.

Half the doors in the Star Wars galaxy do seem as if they're trying to kill the characters walking through them.
