Yet more evidence of J.J. Abrams' returning Star Wars to echoes of its pre-prequels glory, Episode VII will reportedly follow in the Episode VI mold of starting things with Han Solo completely laid out. The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, where they say sources have confirmed that Harrison Ford's injury last week broke the actor's ankle, forcing him to "miss as many as eight weeks of filming" on the new sequel. Nonetheless, it's said that shooting is continuing, and the film is still expected to make its Dec. 18, 2015 release. This is 2014, after all. There's nothing that can't be added in later in post. Like Harrison Ford's distant voice saying, "I'll be right in, everyone. Just checking on my pies."
