After a brief hiatus, Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed production following Harrison Ford's well-publicized injury on set. He joins the rest of the cast in London, where filming will continue at Pinewood Studios.
Filming on the highly anticipated sequel actually began earlier this week under the direction of J.J. Abrams. Things had been quiet at Pinewood for the past couple of weeks after Harrison Ford broke his leg. The actor reportedly had a run-in with the Millennium Falcon ramp, which slammed shut on his ankle. That injury occurred in June.
Harrison Ford had to undergo surgery, with Star Wars: Episode VII taking a two week break in early August while the actor healed.
It is not known who has joined Harrison Ford back on set this week, but we can guess that Peter Mayhew, who plays Han Solo's companion, is back alongside the actor. The cast includes old favorites such as Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels, as well as newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o, Oscar Isaac and Max von Sydow. None of the new characters have been revealed at this time.
The plot of Star Wars: Episode VII is being kept under wraps. It picks up thirty years after Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and is rumored to revolve around Han Solo and Chewbacca's mission to find a missing Luke Skywalker, who may be held captive by Sith Inquisitors.
The delay in shooting will not affect Star Wars: Episode VII's release date. It will still in be theaters next year in time for Christmas.
