Kevin Smith is brought to tears on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII

Jul. 4, 2014by: Sean Wist

While I imagine security is ridiculously tight on the set of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, that hasn't stopped a few celebrities from dropping by to check things out (Simon Pegg and Tom Cruise come to mind). Now, arguably, the biggest Star Wars fan so far has had a chance to check things out: Kevin Smith. Say what you will about the man's career, but he was one of the first to usher in a wave of STAR WARS references in film, and one of the few to defend the prequel trilogy. With that in mind, it comes to no surprise that he would have great things to say about his set visit.

This picture was uploaded to his Instagram immediately following his visit:

Kevin Smith was required to sign a non-disclosure agreement, although that didn't stop him from dropping a few tidbits of information via his Hollywood Babble-On SModcast.

They had a sign at on the stage I cant even say which stage which had the Imperial Starship logo and it said, loose lips sink starships'. Im really excited and you know, people keep saying that I liked the last trilogy and I did. I liked 1, 2 and 3. But I liked them as an adult. When I watched them they didnt give me the same feeling I had when I was seven watching them for the first time and thats fine. This movie though, dude, I cried four times. The seven year old in me came. [J.J] has f*cking captured it, man. He has nailed it.

At one point Smith was asked if he had seen Stormtroopers, to which he replied with a nod and a smile. I suppose that isn't a huge surprise given a lot of the story rumors floating around, but that is confirmation of something. At the end of the day, STAR WARS has always been one of those franchises that disables the pessimistic shields of my heart via Ion cannon, and allows me to be a kid again. The fact that we're getting more films, let alone a continuation of the original trilogy, will probably have me just as excited as Smith is. It's not often I get to say it, but I have a good feeling about this.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will bring many grown men to tears on December 18, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: Happy Independence day, friends!

Huh?

How does Kevin Smith always turn up on other peoples film sets then gives some personal opinion most don't really care for? I always get the feeling like he's trying to attach his name to these films by association.
And PS I am so glad he never even came close to getting his hands on a S. W film and lets hope it stays that way.

super excited for these films! This is what I've always wanted to see, a continuation after episode six. Too bad Darth is gone. I would love to see him again!

I would be excited as well. But looking at him crying makes me laugh.

And Kevin Smith proclaimed Daredevil was the best comic book movie produced since The Rocketeer back before its release. He even said Affleck nailed the Daredevil character, and that his performance was the most perfect personification of a comic book character since Reeve's Superman.

Give Smith a set tour, a cameo, or some candy, and he will suck your movie's dick.

I saw this a couple days ago. In all seriousness, I'm happy that a real fan liked what he saw. Also in all seriousness, I would much rather have the opinion of someone who had half an idea of how to actually make a good scifi film.

Please, take that "slow news day" shit back to TMZ. There's nothing wrong with a post referencing someone's visit to the new Star Wars set. To be quite honest with you, I'm pretty neutral on all things Kevin Smith, but a lot of people like his work and there's nothing wrong with that. Move along dear, if you don't like it.

It's the 4th of July! Of COURSE it's a slow news day! You know guys, sometimes that phrase is just a fact of life that we have to live with. Not every day will be a Fast News Day. Deal with it.

Twice Apricot? The first comment I stated a fact, that he just wrapped production on a film. That did not state I was a fan, it did not state I hated him, just a mere fact that I heard a week ago on a sci-fi radio show. The second comment, well, I guess your reading comprehension skills speak for themselves.

Please, explain SPECIFICALLY how I defended him, because in order to defend someone I would have to say "no he doesn't suck" or something like that to counter the exact opposite

Again, not a fan, and so far I've just stated facts without opinion. I won't even say nice try, because you failed in your assessment.

Maybe Vanity should have said, "Does Kevin Smith even make GOOD movies anymore?"

Seriously, what's it been.....a decade?

Great

Now he is commenting on Star Wars. Now we'll have twice as much of this nonsense to hear about.

He was probably just crying at the Craft Services buffet.

I know a lot of people hate the guy, and he certainly can be really annoying, he promised Daredevil was going to be incredible, but right now I can't bring myself to because we all know we'd probably react in much the same way if brought onto the set of Star Wars Episode VII.
