It's time to fire up the engines on the Millennium Falcon (again).

Production has resumed on Star Wars: Episode VII following an on-set accident in June that broke Harrison Ford's leg, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Following his injury, production took a brief hiatus because Ford's character, Han Solo, plays an integral role in the new Star Wars story. The film's schedule also underwent significant rearrangements to work around the 72-year-old actor's rehabilitation.

Although some had feared the worst following Ford's injury, which was caused when a piece of the Millennium Falcon set fell and struck him, the actor has made a speedy recovery. He was seen on his feet just a few weeks later and more recently walked the red carpet for The Expendables 3 earlier this month.

Six days ago, Ford posted his own ALS ice bucket challenge video, in which his leg injury wasn't noticeable at all. His rep tells EW that the actor has not yet started shooting his own scenes yet, but will soon.

Thankfully, the film's Dec. 18, 2015 release date has not yet been moved despite the setback.

The Following's new showrunner has departed before the new season even begins.

Alcatraz executive producer Jennifer Johnson has exited less than three months after getting promoted to oversee the Fox drama for Season 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Who earns what: TV's highest-paid stars

Johnson, who attended the show's Comic-Con panel in late July, will instead focus on developing new projects under her deal with Warner Bros. TV, the studio behind The Following. A trio of executive producers — Marcos Siega, Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley — will take over the day-to-day duties.

Johnson was originally stepping in for creator Kevin Williamson, so that he could devote his attention to his new CBS series, Stalker, which premieres in September.

Johnson's other credits include Lost, Cold Case and Gang Related.

The Following returns midseason on Fox.
