Can The Force heal broken bones?

That might come in handy for Harrison Ford  – A.K.A. Han Solo – who allegedly broke an ankle filming “Star Wars: Episode VII,” according to “The Hollywood Reporter.”

The 71-year-old actor was filming the upcoming sequel in the U.K. and was since brought to a local hospital for treatment.

Per “THR,” Disney confirmed that he “sustained an ankle injury” but did not give further information on how badly he was hurt.

He will be back for “Episode VII,” as will original stars Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, as well as the actors behind Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2.

The rebooted cast also includes Adam Driver (“Girls”), John Boyega (“Attack the Block”), Lupita Nyong’o and Domnhall Gleeson (“About Time”).

There continue to be rumors that Disney will be rebooting Ford’s other iconic franchise, “Indiana Jones” after taking control of the rights several months ago.

No casting has been confirmed yet, but we’re guessing Shia LaBeouf won’t be on the short list.
