Kevin Smith Says He Visited the Set of Star Wars: Episode VII
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.06.2014



Kevin Smith says that he visited the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. The filmmaker and geek culture aficionado revealed on Instagram that JJ Abrams invited him to the set last month and that he "absolutely loved" what he was seeing there.

Smith spoke with THR about his set visit, saying, "[Abrams] had sent me an email out of the blue while they were shooting in Abu Dhabi last month."

He continued, "So we go to the set and they're actually shooting, and they're shooting -- and this is what I can't tell you what they were shooting -- But what I saw I absolutely loved. It was tactile, it wasn't a series of f---ing green and blue screens in which later on digital characters would be added. It was there it was happening.

"I saw uniforms, I saw artillery that I haven't seen since I was a kid. 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 an f--ing Star Wars movie."

Smith said he toured "Stage M" and saw the full-scale Millennium Falcon, noting, "[Abrams is] building a tactile 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."

The film releases on December 18th, 2015.
