Foodles Productions, a Disney subsidieary company involved with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, pleaded guilty on Tuesday in relation to Harrison Ford breaking his leg on set. If things had occurred slightly differently, Ford could have sustained much worse injuries or even been killed during the accident. Apparently he walked onto the set of the Millennium Falcon, and its metal hydraulic door activated, pinning him and breaking his leg.

That means had it pinned his head or neck, he could've been killed. During the case, it was revealed that the Falcon's door weighs as much as a small car. So it would have taken the Force or the strength of an actual Wookiee to lift it from Ford. He did recover, because he can walk away from freak accidents from the Millennium Falcon and plane crashes.

Disney's production company shouldn't have a problem paying the fines related to the set incident, since the movie took in over $2 billion at the box office.
