A source has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that production on the highly anticipated J.J. Abrams film resumed earlier this week.
The film had been delayed a few weeks following the on-set injury of Harrison Ford, returning to the iconic Star Wars franchise as Han Solo, back in June. Sources claimed the injury involved Ford and the Millennium Falcon, the spacecraft piloted by his character in the original trilogy. The actor later underwent successful surgery and the film went on a two week hiatus to await his full recovery.
Plot details surrounding the seventh chapter in the Star Wars franchise have been kept tightly under wraps, but we do know the film will be picking up 30 years after the events seen in 1983's Return of the Jedi.
Shooting under the direction of J.J. Abrams (Into Darkness), Star Wars: Episode 7 stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and series newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o and Max von Sydow.
[Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) is set for release on December 18th, 2015 and Disney and Lucasfilm have assured fans Mr. Ford's injury, and the project hiatus, will not affect the release date of the movie.
