Good news, "Star Wars" fans: Harrison Ford is back on his feet and production of the new film will resume later this month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The veteran actor broke his left leg on the set of "Episode VII" back in June, and was seen getting around with the help of a special hands-free crutch.

While Disney said at the time that production would be delayed by two weeks, many fans had a bad feeling about the whole thing -- and some rumors claimed production would be delayed longer, by as much as six months.

However, by the end of July, Ford was spotted without the crutch and wearing just a bandage around his ankle. On Monday, the actor walked the red carpet with no sign of injury while attending the premiere of "The Expendables 3."

Ford is part of an ensemble cast of action heroes in the film, which was written by co-star Sylvester Stallone.

"Break a leg," teased Stallone, according to Variety.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" is scheduled for release on Dec. 18, 2015.
