The Hollywood Reporter reports that 71 year-old Han Solo was “injured by the door of the Millennium Falcon, the spacecraft that his character pilots in the original films.”

The memo in the picture tweeted out by Bad Robot says, ”I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie.” This was probably just a joke sent by J.J. to add to the hype. Well with the news of an injured Han Solo i think its safe to say that the Millennium Falcon will definitely be in the movie. May the force be with you Harrison Ford.
