Star Wars Producers Face Charges For Set Mishap Injuring Harrison Ford

February 11th, 2016 by RVNA Production Insurance

Star Wars producers are facing charges due to an on-set accident that severely injured their leading man, Harrison Ford.

The British Health and Safety Executive, the UK’s health authority, announced Thursday it will prosecute Foodles Production (UK), a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Co. and the team that made Star Wars:The Force Awakens, on four charges of violating workplace health-and-safety laws.

HSE Statement

In June 2014, while Star Wars: The Force Awakens was being filmed at Britain’s Pinewood Studios, Ford was struck by a hydraulic door on the set of the Millennium Falcon. Ford, who was 71 at the time, suffered a broken leg and was airlifted to a hospital in Oxford where he underwent surgery.

The first court hearing is scheduled for May 12 at a magistrate’s court near the studio.
