Smith's confidentiality agreement only goes so far, it would seem
We know a few things from Kevin Smith’s trip to the Star Wars Episode VII set. He cried, we saw that in the selfie, and he gave a strong hint that Stormtroopers would make a return for the reboot. So, having signed a confidentially agreement, what else do we know about his visit?
"I saw uniforms; I saw artillery that I haven't seen since I was a kid," he continued. "I saw them shooting an actual sequence in a set that is real – I walked across the set; there were explosions – and it looked like a shot right out of a fucking Star Wars movie," he said.
Smith also said Abrams is "building a tacticle world, a world you can touch. And he's replicating it with all the love of somebody that has the world's greatest collection of Star Wars figures."
Of course, we all remember the teary-eyed selfie Smith uploaded following his trip to the set. But why exactly did he cry? "It's like Field of Dreams," said Smith, before revealing the tears.
“And if J.J. builds it, we’re all going to come hard because it's amazing. It looks fantastic. So anyone out there wondering if he's going to pull it off: He's pulling it off. He showed me cut scenes; he showed me sequences, images, pictures. I cried, and I hugged that guy. And I’m sure as I was crying and hugging on him that he was thinking 'time is money' because they're making a movie. But he got it. He was very flattered. And I was like, 'Honestly dude, you’re doing it. You’re making my childhood again. You’re doing our Star Wars.' What I saw blew me away."
