Fans were worried he wouldn't be able to return to the sets of some his biggest films after a major leg injury in June, but Harrison Ford has successfully managed to get rid of all those fears and prove he's made a full recovery.

The 72-year-old actor walked without a limp and looked to be extremely healthy as he strolled the red carpet at the L.A. premiere of his newest movie, Expendables 3-proving that he did manage to recover nicely after breaking his leg when the door of his Millennium Falcon spaceship fell on him on the Star Wars: Episode VII set back in June.

Now, it appears everything is back to normal, and a studio spokesperson for the film has confirmed that the actor would return on-set this month.

His rapid turnaround with recovery is also good news for fans of his work in the Indiana Jones franchise, as a fifth film for that one has been the cause of much speculation-specifically whether or not the actor would be able to resume playing the role due to his age.

The latest reports however seemed to suggest that Ford could resume the role for a fifth film-but would hand off the duties of his character to a younger supporting actor for future installments-allowing Disney to truly capitalize on owning the franchise by making more than just one film.

Ford himself has acknowledged the fact in the past that he is no longer as young as he was when he made the first Indiana Jones films, and has said that while he loved playing the role, he does realize hes much older.

"I would do it in a New York minute, yes...I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart," he said at the time. "I'm old enough that we don't need (Sean Connery) any more. I'm old enough to play my own father!"
