Kevin Smith Visits 'Star Wars Episode VII's Set & His Words Will Ease Your Worried Soul
We don't know exactly what we gotta do to nab an invite to the set of Star Wars Episode VII, but it certainly seems like a fun time. There was Chris Colfer jumping for joy outside of the set Saturday, and now we've got Kevin Smith talking about his Episode VII visit and all the ways it threw him back into a fanboyish tizzy. We would like in, please. Pretty please?
Smith — who apparently as a famous nerd just gets to, like, have access to the secrets of things like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and what Leia and Han are up to these days (not that we're bitter) — snagged an invite to the set. It's a mystery as to how he snagged this invite, as it's a J.J. Abrams set and the director tends to try to keep things pretty close to the vest. But he did it, and then he went to a film festival in Switzerland and gave a Q&A, in which a fan asked what is was like "being on-board the Millennium Falcon" and Smith responded properly, AKA with a minute spanning longer than ten minutes.
Here is one small part of what he said, lovingly transcribed by First Showing:
We'd bet a good amount of money at least one of the old friends he's talking about is Carrie Fischer. Oh, and what he says later about the difference between the (generally hated) prequel movies and this one will probably ease some worried hearts and minds:
And here is a picture of his (proper) reaction to being on the set in the first place:
