Harrison Ford healing after surgery on broken leg

NEW YORK (AP) — Harrison Ford is recuperating after surgery to heal a broken leg suffered during production on "Star Wars: Episode VII."

The actor's publicist said Thursday that Ford is doing well after surgery and will soon begin rehab. Ford was injured a week ago during filming of the much-anticipated sequel at Pinewood Studios outside of London.

The accident involved a spacecraft door falling on the 71-year-old actor's leg. Ford's Han Solo pilots the Millennium Falcon, which is returning in "Episode VII." Disney has said that shooting is continuing while Ford recuperates. He is expected to be sidelined up to two months.

Ford is one of several original "Star Wars" stars returning to the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel. He is joined by fellow alums Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew.
