A Star Wars Episode 7 cast member Harrison Ford was injured on the set of the new film.

Hans Solo himself sustained a "bad ankle injury" while filming on Wednesday. He was hospitalized in London afterwards, according to a report from Variety.

The incident happened at Pinewood studios "when a hydraulic door reportedly fell down and hit him, possibly fracturing his ankle," Variety writes.

The Hollywood Reporter also weighed in on the injury and claims it happened by the door of the Millennium Falcon.

Star Wars Episode 7 creators recently tweeted out a picture that hints at the Millennium Falcon being a part of the film.

What could be a part of the legendary ship sits in back of the movie's director J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and a shiny R2-D2. Behind them is a heavily scaffolded structure that looks like an incomplete section of the ship's cockpit.

"With #StarWars director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathy Kennedy, talking to a key cast member," read the tweet that was sent out from U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne. He was allowed to tour Pinewood Studios, which is located just outside of London.

Fans have weighed in on the pic and pointed out that the Falcon's cockpit window looks like a tie fighter. This could point to a plot involving the Empire.

However, Star Wars Episode 7 will not feature any appearances from the beloved Darth Vader.

James Earl Jones, the voice behind the character recently discussed the movie franchise in an interview with Variety where he was asked if he was going to play a role in the upcoming sequel.

"Oh no," said Jones. "I've got no illusions that I will or even hankerings to be in them, but I'm very proud to have been part of the original."
