Court: Accident while filming 'The Force Awakens' could have killed Harrison Ford

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Movie CLIP - Kanjiklub (2015) - Harrison Ford Movie HD

Han Solo faced a lot of danger in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." But apparently, so did Harrison Ford, the iconic actor who first brought the character to life nearly 40 years ago.

An accident on the movie's set involving the Millennium Falcon door could have killed him, The Guardian reports.

It could have killed somebody. The fact that it didn't was because an emergency stop was activated.

In 2014, Ford was knocked to the ground and crushed by the door of the ship.

That door weighs about as much as a small car, a safety expert told a British court.

Ford reportedly walked on a set he didn't think was "live" before the door hit him, pinning him to the floor and breaking his leg. He had to be airlifted to a hospital in Oxford, England.

Now we had lots of money and technology and so they built a f---king great hydraulic door which closed at light speed...

Foodles Production, a Disney-owned company, has pleaded guilty to two British criminal charges related to health and safety. The company will be sentenced Aug. 22.

Britain's Health and Safety Executive said the incident could have been prevented.

Ford showed how he was injured on "The Tonight Show" in December with an action figure.
