Director and podcaster Kevin Smith has not been shy with his excitement for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. Today was no exception. Smith took to Twitter today to share his thoughts on the trailer that the rest of us have to wait until ESPN's Monday Night Football game tonight between the Eagles and the Giants to see. Below is Smith's reaction,
Can't say how but I saw tonight's trailer. Easily one of my favorite promos of all time. Breathtaking. Tears of joy. https://t.co/sZswi39ZYp— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) October 19, 2015
Smith got the attention of Star Wars fans when he visited the set last summer during filming. Smith spoke glowingly about his visit, without giving away spoilers. He later gained Star Wars headlines during San Diego Comic Con where he followed up the Star Wars panel in Hall H - only it was mostly empty for his panel because JJ Abrams invited the entire audience to a live outdoor concert of Star Wars music.
We'll all get our chance to see if we have the same reaction as Smith when the trailer airs tonight during Monday Night Football on ESPN.
