As that date approaches, many have speculated openly about the Star Wars films finally coming to Netflix. There were even rumors recently that Netflix was prepping their database for the Star Wars movies, though Netflix denied those reports.

Abrams, who was on set for Ford’s unfortunate accident last year, when a hydraulic door broke his leg.
