There’s a disturbance in the Force. Disney Studios confirmed this week that Harrison Ford was injured on set of the new Star Wars sequel, but that filming will continue as scheduled.

“Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates,” studio Disney said a statement to THR

A police report said an unnamed 71-year-old man was injured by a “garage door,” but THR quoted a source saying it was a door on none other than the Millenium Falcon that hurt Ford. The famous spaceship was recently confirmed as part of Episode VII.

JJ Abrams is directing the sequel, starring the original cast (including Ford), as well as newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson,  Max von Sydow, and the recently announced Lupita Nyong’o. It is currently filming in London.
