Why Chewie Won't be in Episode VII




"You wookie sack of sh*t!" Classic.

Maybe they can write him in as a crutch for Solo.

Harrison Ford injures ankle on set of 'Star Wars'

Harrison Ford was hospitalized after being injured on the set of "Star Wars: Episode VII."

Disney said the 71-year-old actor was being treated for an ankle injury that happened during filming Thursday. The "Star Wars" sequel is being filmed at Pinewood Studios outside of London.

The accident wasn't a stunt sequence, but involved the door of a spacecraft from the film. A local police report on the incident cited a "garage door" injuring a 71 year-old man, but didn't name Ford.

The Millennium Falcon, which Ford's Han Solo piloted in the first "Star Wars" trilogy," was recently disclosed as part of "Episode VII."

Ford is one of several original "Star Wars" stars returning to the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel. He's joined by fellow alums Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew.

Disney said shooting will continue as planned while Ford recuperates.


I'd like to think the Bobby went with "garage door," mostly because he didn't want to have to be the one to write about a spaceship in an official report. But the discretion was probably meant to benefit others, not him.

THE ARTICLE IS NOT SAYING THE MILLENIUM FALCON HATES HAN SOLO. But let's face it, we'd all understand if she did.

Apparently, they are now saying that Ford broke his leg.
