Los Angeles - Harrison Ford is "doing great and working hard" after being involved in a plane crash last month.

The 72-year-old Star Wars actor suffered injuries in a small plane crash in Los Angeles at the beginning of March, but according to Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams, Harrison is making a good recovery from the accident.

The director said: "He's doing great and working hard.

"I had respect for him all my life, but I never had more respect for him than when I saw how he landed that plane.

"He's more of a hero than anyone he's played [on film]."

Earlier this week, filmmakers released a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which shows Harrison's Han Solo alongside his sidekick Chewbacca.

The trailer starts with a car speeding through a desolate landscape past the crashed spaceship, and a mysterious voiceover, thought to be Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker.

The unnamed character announces: "The force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too."

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to be released on December 18.
