The saga of Harrison Ford's infamous injury from the set of The Force Awakens has finally come to a close. In case you're not familiar with the story, the then-71-year-old actor caught his leg underneath one of the hydraulic doors on the set of the Millennium Falcon, breaking both his tibia and fibula and delaying filming for two weeks.

Now, the court case against Foodles Production company — a London-based Disney company — has finally come to a close. Foodles will be fined $2 million dollars. The judge involved in the proceedings chastised the company for failing to explain to Ford exactly what the on-set risks were:

"The greatest failing of all on behalf of the company is a lack of communication. If only they had included Mr. Ford in all the discussions, he might have at least been alert to the dangers that he had to avoid."

Ford himself admitted that things had certainly changed a great deal since the last time he was on the set of a Star Wars film. He told Jimmy Fallon:

"In the original film, if there had been a door, it would have been closed with a pulley and a stage hand just closing it. But now we had lots of money and technology and so they built a fucking great hydraulic door which closed at light speed."

The budget for The Force Awakens? Approximately $200 million. Harrison Ford's smushed leg? $2 million. Seeing the legend that is Han Solo one last time? Priceless.
