Harrison Ford is back after an on-set injury in June, and cameras are rolling yet again on the set of the J.J. Abrams directed Star Wars: Episode VII.

The film's production took a short hiatus when Ford – who plays the space smuggler Han Solo - was rushed to the hospital after a door on the Millennium Falcon – Han's ship – broke the actor's ankle.

The 72-year-old Ford plays a large role in the upcoming installment in the beloved series, and his injury necessitated a restructuring of the production schedule.

People predicted that the star, due to his age, would take months to recover and could jeopardize the production. However it seems those doomsayers have been proven wrong as Ford was recently seen walking the red carpet at the Expendables 3 premiere, and appears to be able to use his leg without a cast or even support.

The film, which is being shot at Pinewood Studios near London, is still scheduled for a December 18, 2015 release and has not, at this point, pushed back that date despite the two-week production hiatus.
