IVER HEATH, England, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Filming for Star Wars: Episode VII is once again back on track after it was halted due to an on-set injury to Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford.

Filming got back under way earlier this week at Pinewood Studios in England.

Ford broke his left leg on the set of the movie back in June. He reportedly broke it in an incident involving the Millennium Falcon, which fans of the famed franchise know as the ship Ford's character pilots. Production of the film was put on hiatus after Ford had surgery so he could recover.

Both Disney and Lucasfilm said Ford's injury will not push the release date of the latest installment of franchise, which is set for December 18, 2015.
