Lucasfilm Confirms That Harrison Ford's Injury Won't Delay 'Star Wars: Episode VII,' Adds Two to Its Cast

After Harrison Ford's injury on the set on Star Wars: Episode VII, there's been a lot of Internet chatter that Lucasfilm could push the film back to accommodate any production delays. I mean, Ford did have to have surgery on his leg, so that would be entirely plausible. Any talk of a delay is false, though.

Lucasfilm announced on Sunday that Episode VII is still on track for its Dec. 18, 2015, release date.

Meanwhile, principal photography continues at Pinewood Studios in London after wrapping on location in Abu Dhabi in May.

In August, the team will take a brief two-week hiatus while adjustments to the current production schedule are made as actor Harrison Ford recovers from a leg injury. Harrison is doing well and is looking forward to returning to the set soon. Shooting remains on track to wrap in the fall with the film scheduled for release on December 18, 2015.

The studio also announced the addition of two new members to Episode VII's cast, revealing that Crystal Clarke and Pip Anderson would join the previously announced group.

Crystal Clarke is an American actress studying in Glasgow, UK, who has both stage and screen acting experience and is soon to be seen in her first feature, The Moon and the Sun (to be released in 2015). British actor Pip Andersen is a skilled practitioner of parkour, a discipline that involves propelling oneself through any given environment with incredible grace and agility. Pip recently demonstrated this remarkable skill in a Spider-Man ad for Sony.

Both actors were found through an open casting call. Like just about every other bit of Episode VII casting news, Lucasfilm didn't announce who Clarke and Anderson will be playing in the next Star Wars movie.
