‘Star Wars: Ep. VII’ Resumes Production, Harrison Ford HealingPublished on August 29, 2014. Updated October 15, 2014
You cannot keep Han Solo down. Forget the fact that Harrison Ford is in his 70s, he’s healing quick, and production on the latest chapter of Star Wars has resumed.
Rest assured, fellow space nerds…there will be plenty buzz about all things Star Wars, as well as the Christopher Nolan space epic, Interstellar — which is set to open this fall — coming your way via Fame10.
There are so many exciting things about Star Wars Episode VII. For starters, J.J. Abrams is a filmmaker, and the man is shooting on film. Good ole industry standard, 35mm film. Awesome. And there are sets. And costumes. All opposed to screens and cartoons.
Addressing the hiccup.
When Harrison Ford broke his leg — reportedly while filming scenes on the famed Millennium Falcon — it sent fans into a tizzy. Would this effect the release date? Would they have to rewrite the script? Would Harrison Ford still be able to be in the movie?
Not to worry. Ford isn’t 100 percent, but he’s good enough to be back in the mix. (He was also in good enough form to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge last week.)
The production team has been quite secretive about the latest intergalactic adventure, but it is rumored — and all but accepted as truth — that the story centers around the character of Han Solo. As everyone is aware, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are back in the mix as the Skywalker twins, and whose to say how big this happy family has become? Are Leia and Han married? Are they common law? The potential is so exciting.
This will be…the biggest movie-opening ever. A true, world-wide, sub-culture phenomena. And yes, we’re thrilled Harrison has recovered rapidly!
