However, despite the star’s injury, it’s now believed producers have managed to reschedule filming, meaning Harrison’s recovery shouldn’t disrupt filming too much.

In fact, Yahoo Celebrity has reported that some scenes could be filmed from the waist up while he recuperates from his broken ankle.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Harrison’s wife Calista Flockhart has confirmed to The Telegraph that she is “en route” from America to Oxford so she can be by her husband’s side while he recovers from his injuries.

The seventh ‘Star Wars’ film is currently slated for release in December 2015.
