    Writer, director, and most importantly super Star Wars fan, Kevin Smith sat down with hosts Jeff Lowe and Ken Jac of the popular movie podcast Lights, Camera, Barstool, where he spoke briefly about his week-long visit to the set of Star Wars: Episode IX. Here is the clip of the discussion as well as a transcript of his quotes.












    Here is a transcript of his quotes from the interview:



    As you might expect Kevin Smith is not spoiling the story for Episode IX, but it is always great to here his takeaway from being on set for that long. I can't imagine being able to be on a Star Wars set for five minutes, let along a week! So to summarize:
    • Two segments he watched being filmed blew his mind.
    • He was awed by specifics he was told about the movie's story.
    • He saw a set bigger than any movie set he had ever seen.
    • One performance in particular is a career best, and one that brought him to tears.


    As a side note, Smith revealed that Lucasfilm ever asked him to create within the galaxy far, far away, that he would want to do a story on young Luke. But before you start screaming for Sebastian Stan, Silent Bob admits he would rather just watch the movies and read the comic books as a fan.

    This set visit summary is a bit of deja vu. As you may recall, Smith had a glowingly positive review of his visit to J.J. Abrams' set for The Force Awakens. By all accounts Episode IX is sounding like it is shaping up to be an epic film that will leave us in awe to close out the Skywalker saga. There is no bigger Star Wars fan than Kevin Smith, so it's always great to hear this kind of feedback from him.

    Whose performance could this be? Daisy’s? Adam’s? John’s? The only one with more of a career of the new actors is Adam Driver.
    Or Oscar Isaac perhaps?

    I completely share your sentiment.

    If he had a bigger role (which I doubt), I would have said Mark, but it's probably one of these two and probably Adam - he has more conflict and more 'actory' stuff to do.

    Actually, now that you say it... :cool:

    Wouldn't it be cool to give Hayden Christiansen a chance to shine after all the hate he got for the Prequels?

    This is a fun one. Here's my list in order of my probability rankings (most to least). Or maybe its just my wish list. I dunno.

    Hayden Christensen
    Billy Dee Williams
    Adam Driver
    Mark Hamill
    The Falcon (I am convinced that we will see her tragic, yet heroic end and I will bawl. Right there I will bawl and none of you can stop it.)
    Daisy Ridley
    Oscar Isaac
    John Boyega
    Anthony Daniels
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    Ewan McGregor

    *ducks out of the way

    Kevin Smith:
    "I do want to say this...while I was there [on the Episode IX set], number one, J. J. [Abrams] is doing the Lord's work, man, this movie looks fantastic. It's a year away, but man it looks fantastic. I wept on set because I saw somebody give a career best performance - somebody I've seen in these movies before - I rolled a tear it was so darn powerful. [It is] the biggest set I've ever seen in my life, like the dude's not directing a movie, it's like he's directing a small country. The thing is so massive. And I sat there for a week and watched this scene - two scenes get filmed - one of them was absolutely amazing - I heard plot details and stuff - the movie's gonna be fantastic."

    Kevin Smith:
    “That was incredible. Like, oh my god, [Episode IX] looks phenomenal. Nobody is talking about it right now because they’re in production and it don’t come out for a ******’ year and stuff but like, I saw things. I was there for a week and watched two scenes get filmed.” “[The things I saw] had nothin’ to do with [Star Wars: The] Last Jedi. The things I saw, that blew my mind are on a Star Wars-level. All universe, all flicks. There were some details I heard that *gasps* since they’re wrapping this up with nine.” “What I saw was spellbinding and heartwarming and, boy did they get the right guy. What I saw was massive too. The biggest thing I’ve ever seen in my life, the biggest set I’d seen in my life.” “Everyone should have a good-ass cry. I watched a performance that was a career-best (Star Wars) performance on set. It’s going to be amazing. That movie, what I saw, we always knew it would be wonderful and J.J. did a great job with Force Awakens, oh my lord.” (December 7, 2018)

    I don’t know... I feel Mark Hammil has already given the performance of a lifetime in TLJ, but it’s a possibility too.

    “Someone I’ve seen in these movies before...”

    Is he referring to the ST only or to the OT or/and the PT?

    He’s really messing with us, this guy! ;)

    With Kevin.. I see two possibilities.

    1. a big character from previous trilogies.. Mark, Hayden, Billy
    2. it’s a private joke.. perhaps he saw Greg Grunberg saying one short line and he’s having a laugh with him.

    you just never know with that sod lol :D
