NEW YORK » Harrison Ford was hospitalized after being injured on the set of "Star Wars: Episode VII."

Disney said the 71-year-old actor was being treated for an ankle injury that happened during filming Thursday. The "Star Wars" sequel is being filmed at Pinewood Studios outside of London.

The accident wasn’t a stunt sequence, but involved the door of a spacecraft from the film. A local police report on the incident cited a "garage door" injuring a 71- year-old man, but didn’t name Ford.

The Millennium Falcon, which Ford’s Han Solo piloted in the first "Star Wars" trilogy," was recently disclosed as part of "Episode VII."

Ford is one of several original "Star Wars" stars returning to the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel. He’s joined by fellow alums Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew.

Disney said shooting will continue as planned while Ford recuperates.
