Han Solo has been compromised.

Disney confirmed today that Harrison Ford was injured during the filming of Star Wars: Episode VII, saying via press release that the veteran actor hurt his ankle and was taken to a hospital in London.

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

Details are scarce, but the star - reprising his beloved role of Han Solo for the wildly anticipated follow-up - was filming a scene near the door of the Millennium Falcon when the incident occurred.

J.J. Abrams, of course, is directing the Star Wars reboot, which will set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

It will return original stars Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill and also feature up-and-comers such as Lupita Nyong'o, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.
