Star Wars Episode VII has resumed filming after a recent hiatus due to Harrison Ford's on-set injury.

J.J. Abrams' production shut down for two weeks earlier this month to await Ford's recovery after he broke his leg.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming restarted earlier this week at Pinewood Studios in the UK.

Disney and Lucasfilm say Ford's injury and the shooting hiatus will not delay the release of Star Wars Episode VII, which is slated to open on December 18, 2015.

Star Wars Episode VII will feature original trilogy stars Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew as well as new cast members Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, John Boyega, Max von Sydow and Daisy Ridley.
