Harrison Ford has been spotted using a wheelchair after breaking his leg on set of the new 'Star Wars' movie.

The veteran actor's leg was crushed by the door of a spacecraft prop during filming of Star Wars: Episode VII at Pinewood Studios in England earlier this month. He was admitted to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, and underwent an operation to fix the damage.

Now the first pictures of the Indiana Jones star since the accident have emerged. In the snaps, Ford is being pushed in a wheelchair by an aide and is seen sporting a lower leg cast on his left ankle. The pictures were reportedly taken as the actor was preparing to leave the U.K. and travel back to the U.S. for rehabilitation treatment. According to reports, the star will be out of action for up to six months.
