“I do want to say this,” Smith said while speaking of the set,  “number one, J.J. is doing the lord’s work. This movie looks fantastic. It’s a year away, but man it looks fantastic.”

Brought To Tears

Smith was so strongly influenced by his experience, in fact, that he even shed tears. “I wept on set because I saw somebody give a career-best performance, somebody I’ve seen in these movies before,” Smith recounted, “I rolled a tear, it was so darn powerful.”

Judging by Smith’s recounting, it seems safe to say that at least some aspects of Episode IX live up to the hype.

Tightly Sealed

Kevin Smith was not able to say much more about what he saw on the Star Wars set, as the movie-makers surely do not want too much of the upcoming film’s information to get out. “They make you sign so many nondisclosure agreements that if I said anything, somebody with a lightsaber would pop out and cut my hand off,” said Smith.
