It's hard not to be jealous of Kevin Smith. The legendary Podcaster and filmmaker made headlines last year when he visited the set of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and subsequently discussed his emotional experience climbing aboard the Millennium Falcon. Now Smith is back talking Star Wars, and this time it seems he's actually seen at least some of the film itself. Epic Stream reports that Smith spoke vaguely about seeing a portion of a certain film on a recent episode of his Hollywood Babble-On Podcast. He's careful not to mention any names or titles for obvious reasons, but it's heavily implied that the film is indeed The Force Awakens. Here's what he had to say:
“I saw a buddy of mine, a fellow filmmaker friend, who is making this movie that is so f***ing wonderful. And I saw a chunk of it. And it was… spellbinding. This is the only way I can describe it. It’s like, I love movies and sometimes I over praise them and s**t, but this is the only way I can describe this: it was like – not figuratively, literally – being transported to the fountain of youth. And having the fountain of youth take me back to 1977. First time I saw a picture called Star Wars. I can’t say much more.”
You can listen to his comments, which happen early on in the episode, by clicking here. But be warned, lots of NSFW language is included in typical Kevin Smith fashion.
Just earlier today we heard from Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, who also had high praise for the film. While I still don't want to set my expectations too high, it's certainly encouraging to hear things like this and makes the wait until December 18th that much harder.
