Harrison Ford Injured on the Set of ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′? Our Interview With Chewbacca

Star Wars Episode 7
Lucasfilm

On Wednesday, it was reported that while on the set of ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘, a door to the Millennium Falcon fell on Harrison Ford’s ankle. Ford is reportedly fine and is recovering in a London hospital. Considering Harrison Ford’s already, let’s say, prickly relationship with Star Wars, it’s hard to envision this incident doing anything to change Ford’s perception – not just being injured on the set, but being injured by the Millennium Falcon itself.

To give us an update on this situation and others involving ‘Star Wars: Episode 7,’ we spoke to Chewbacca.

First thing, congratulations on ‘Star Wars: Episode 7,’ Chewbacca.

Nngaarrr.

This is your fifth ‘Star Wars’ movie, right?

Nngaarrr.

Well, I don’t think most people count the Holiday Special.

NNGAARRR!

OK! OK! It’s six movies! I’m not arguing!

Nngaarrr.

Were you there when the accident happened yesterday?

Nngaarrr.

What happened?

Nngaarrr.

I see.

Nngaarrr.

Oh, really?

Nngaarrr.

That’s interesting.

Nngaarrr.

Well, I can only imagine.

Nngaarrr.

How was Harrison’s demeanor after the accident?

Nngaarrr.

Hm. What do you think he meant by “To hell with everyone here”?

Nngaarrr.

Well, Harrison does like to point.

Nngaarrr.

Oh, that finger.

Nngaarrr.

I’m sure he didn’t mean it, Chewbacca.

Nngaarrr.

Then yes, he probably did mean it.

Nngaarrr.

How has the rest of filming been going?

Nngaarrr.

Wow, I would not have expected that to be a plot point.

Nngaarrr.

That’s quite a scoop.

Nngaarrr.

Remember when you danced on ‘The Muppet Show’?

Nngaarrr.

Yeah, you did look really silly.

NNGAARRR!

What was Kermit like?

Nngaarrr.

That’s disappointing. Remember when you met Yoda?

Nngaarrr.

Han Solo doesn’t believe in the Force when we first meet him in ‘Star Wars,’ why didn’t you just tell him about Yoda?

Nngaarrr.

You’re right, life is full of mysteries. Well, I know you have to get back to filming. Thanks for joining us today, Chewbacca?

Goodbye.
