Star Wars Episode 7 resumes filming after enforced break

Filming on Star Wars Episode 7 has resumed after a recent hiatus as a result of an injury to star Harrison Ford. 

Production on the hugely anticipated sci-fi epic shut down for two weeks earlier this month to accommodate Ford, who underwent successful leg surgery after suffering a nasty accident on the film's set. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, production resumed earlier this week at Pinewood Studios in the UK, with studio bosses confirming that there will be no delay to the film's release date, which is currently scheduled to be December 18th 2015. 

The new film, which is being directed by J.J. Abrams, features newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o and Max von Sydow, who will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker.

Plot details have been kept a closely guarded secret, but it is known that the new film will be set 30 years after the events that take place in the 1983 classic Return Of The Jedi.
