Earlier this week, we speculated that 'Star Wars: Episode 7' could see its release date pushed to 2016 due to the severity of Harrison Ford's on-set injury; once thought to be a broken ankle that would keep him out two months, now confirmed to be a broken leg that might mean upwards of six months of rehab. Disney and Lucasfilm would like to do everything they can to avoid having to move the release date again, and one of the things they're reportedly ready to do is expanding Oscar Isaac's role in the film.
Now, comes word that the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' production team convened early this morning to discuss the nature of Ford's injury and how it will impact the shooting schedule. The early word from those meetings was that 'Star Wars: Episode 7' "could be pushed back by a substantial amount of time."
When J.J. Abrams was brought on to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' and eventually to rework the script with Lawrence Kasdan, he was not guaranteed to work on the other installments in the new trilogy -- that job will be (partly) going to 'Looper' director Rian Johnson!

Last week, the internet couldn't stop talking about Harrison Ford's 'Star Wars: Episode 7' injury. Oh, the jokes! Oh, the memes!
