Harrison Ford has been hospitalized after injuring his ankle on the set of the latest Star Wars film.

A representative for Disney has confirmed the drama, but insists the movie star's injury will not affect the filming or scheduling of Star Wars: Episode VII.

The rep tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates."

A source tells the publication that the actor, who reprises his role as Han Solo in the Star Wars sequel, was injured by the door of the Millennium Falcon, the spacecraft that his character pilots in the original films.
