When you’re a huge “Star Wars” fan, visiting the set of the next movie in the iconic franchise could easily bring you to tears. Don’t believe that? Just ask Kevin Smith.
The podcaster, filmmaker and “Comic Book Men” head honcho stopped by the set to visit fellow director J.J. Abrams and couldn’t contain his emotions. “Visited JJ and his ‘EP VII’ set. I signed the NDA so all I can share are this old Bantha-Tracks subscriber’s tears and snotty nose of joy,” he writes. “The Force is WITH this movie. Holy Sith.”
In the photo, a clearly emotional Smith gives a thumbs up after seeing his childhood obsession come to life. If his reaction is any indication, perhaps “Star Wars” fans will be pleased with what Abrams and his team are creating.
