We can't (yet) see what our old friends Luke, Han, Leia, and Chewbacca are up to on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, but we've already been granted a sneak peek of R2-D2 -- and now, director J.J. Abrams has thrown back the curtain on our first look at the return of the X-wing fighter.
The ship, piloted by Rebel insurgents in their battle against the Empire, seems set to be making a return to action in Episode VII, at least judging from the glimpse we get via Abrams' new "Force for Change" video.

For a film that initially looked to be something of a sausage fest, Star Wars: Episode VII is shaping up to be a rather distaff-friendly slice of sci-fi. In the latest of several recent casting announcements, British actress Christina Chong has been added to the mix.
Chong joins a growing list of new faces in the upcoming sequel, including Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong'o, Gwendoline Christie, and Crystal Clarke; her recent credits include an appearance in the Fox miniseries 24:

There may not be a franchise on the planet (or in a galaxy far, far away) more perfectly made for IMAX than Star Wars, but the format's rise has occurred mostly during the saga's time away from theaters, so they've mostly been kept apart -- although the prequel trilogy shot by George Lucas in the late '90s and early aughts did end up being blown up and projected on those really, really big screens.

Harrison Ford's leg injury on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII may potentially delay the film's release, but Disney is keeping the date no matter what. If Ford dies, he dies.
"Star Wars" good news only lasts so long. The most infamous ankle break in the history of below the waist bone breaks—since Joe Namath of course— is causing so much pain for so many. In case you've been living under an embargo of no ligament-related news, you’ve probably heard by now that Harrison Ford sustained an injury on the set of J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII” ("We have proudly worked 15 6 days with no accidents,” the production work sign said sheepishly).

Could Harrison Ford's leg injury force Disney to push the release date of Star Wars: Episode VII to 2016? According to the latest rumor, that's a possibility.
Ford broke his left leg in the second week of June when the door of the Millennium Falcon fell on him during a shoot.

Reports that Harrison Ford had broken his ankle when a door of the Millennium Falcon fell on him were inaccurate. He actually broke his left leg, the BBC has confirmed with his publicist.
"His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly," Ford's publicist Ina Treciokas said in a statement.
The Millennium Falcon's betrayal of Han Solo was worse than initially thought. Earlier this month, Harrison Ford was said to have broken his ankle when the door of his famous ship fell on his leg on the set of “Star Wars Episode VII.” Now it turns out that the 71 year-old actor suffered a broken leg, which required more intense medical care, as reported by the BBC.
