We had a feeling the new Star Wars flick would include the chapter from our fanfic where Han Solo becomes part robot, and it turns out we were totally right!
OK, so that's not entirely true. BUT, it turns out that Harrison Ford is making some major progress after injuring his leg last month!
Last time we saw 71-year-old actor, he was riding solo in a wheelchair! But now, it looks like Harrison has ditched his wheels and exchanged them for a iWalk crutch!
Brad Hunter, the creator of the hands-free crutch, says it's a great way to recover by keeping you injured leg active:
"When you use normal crutches, you're passive in your recovery, and you're not using your leg, so you're atrophying from day one. With this, you're not. So it's a very active way to do recovery."
That sounds like a lot of work! But according to Brad, Harrison is already walking on his peg-leg like he's had it his entire life!
We're still not exactly sure how this is going to affect the movie or how much screen time Han gets, but hopefully it's a good sign he's on the road to recovery!
