(Newser) – Harrison Ford is 30-plus years removed from his Han Solo heyday, and the actor ended up in the hospital today with an ankle injury while shooting a scene for the upcoming Star Wars movie. It's not clear what happened or how serious it is, but the Hollywood Reporter thinks the mishap took place near the spacecraft Millennium Falcon, which Han Solo pilots in the original movies. The Wrap, meanwhile, reports that Disney has a special insurance policy for Ford, given his age of 71.

It's a good thing he didn't trip and land on a Light Sabre.
