The Star Wars: Episode VII rumor mill continues to churn away as new plot details have possibly surfaced. But before we get to those, let’s get to some production rumors following Harrison Ford‘s leg injury. According to the less-than-reliable New York Post, Oscar Isaac‘s role is being expanded to make up for less Han Solo. However, another source tells the Post, “‘The basic story line will not change that much.’ The source said no characters were being dramatically expanded, but ‘the order of filming scenes could be shifted’ to work around Ford’s absence.” This seems far more likely, and the source adds that “Shutting down the movie is impossible,” and I believe that as well. I’m not sure the movie’s insurance would cover such a shutdown, and even if it did, Disney seems determined to hit the release date no matter what.
