This morning in Episode VII: Kevin Smith says Abrams “has nailed it”

ksmith-pinewoodHe may have signed an NDA, but Kevin Smith has let loose some details about his Episode VII set visit, most notably that the film will involve stormtroopers. (Which has been bandied about so much that it’s not really a surprise at this point.) Also, this:

“I’m really excited and you know, people keep saying that I liked the last trilogy and I did. I liked 1, 2 and 3. But I liked them as an adult, when I watched them they didn’t give me the same feeling I had when I was seven watching them for the first time and that’s fine. This movie though… Dude, I cried four times. The seven year old in me came. [J.J] has f*cking captured it, man. He has nailed it.”

Anklewatch! People is all over Harrison Ford’s crutch situation. “I wish everybody was so easy. He gets it. He’s mechanically inclined,” Brad Hunter, the director of business development for the iWalk crutch told them. “It’s a very active way to do recovery.”

Mystery! Why are there “Star Wars 7” signs in Atlanta? Is someone pulling a prank?

Rumors! Making Star Wars has a couple things that I’m about 99.9% sure are complete and utter bullshit from the same well as that Reclamation treatment from last year. Not buying the Boyega thing, either.

  1. But he’s black. He’s got to be Lando’s son. And Lupita must be playing Lando’s wife/daughter/distant cousin. It’s all so obvious, Dunc! ;)

      1. Okay, let’s make a family tree then. ;-) Mace is the father, Adi Gallia is the mother, Lando is the son, Boyega is the grandson, and Lupita plays Adi’s granddaughter from her earlier relationship with Captain Panaka.
        Finally it all makes sense. :-D

  2. Call me foolishly trusting, but I believe him. I have said, I got more of a “Star Wars” (ie ANH) vibe watching the 2009 “Star Trek” than I did watching the prequels. (Also the commentary on that film which includes JJ and the writers gently snarking at the prequels is confidence-inspiring.) I’m not saying sure, it’ll be great (hello, “Star Trek Into Darkness”, although that failed more because it felt more Wars than Trek than being a terrible movie-right idea, wrong characters) but I’m a lot more confident about THIS director than I would be about a lot of other choices.
