Ford was injured in June of that year while shooting Star Wars: The Force Awakens at Pinewood Studios near London when the door of the Millennium Falcon fell on the actor’s leg, forcing him to undergo surgery and putting production went on a two-week hiatus to await his recovery from an ankle injury.
Foodles Production (UK) Ltd., which is owned by Disney, was ordered to pay a $1.95 million fine, The Associated Press Reports. The production company acknowledged it had breached health and safety laws.
“If only they had included Mr. Ford in all the discussions, he might have at least been alert to the dangers that he had to avoid,” Judge Francis Sheridan said.
Prosecutors argued the Han Solo actor could have been killed in the accident involving a hydraulic door.
Force Awakens went on to gross more than $2 billion when it was released last December.
