Kevin Smith, known for directing movies like "Clerks" and "Dogma," was allowed to visit the sets of the popular upcoming movie "Star Wars: Episode 7." In a post on his Instagram account, he hinted at the Sith.
Members of a Star Wars fan club in Thailand, dressed as Stormtroopers, interact with children during a Star Wars Day celebration at the Phayathai Babies Home in Nonthaburi province, on the outskirts of Bangkok, June 7, 2014.
In a teary-eyed post on Instagram, Kevin Smith confirmed his visit to the sets of "Star Wars: Episode 7." His tears, however, were tears of joy. He had nothing but praise for the upcoming movie. He also said he had signed a non-disclosure agreement and would not drop any spoilers of the movie.
"The Force is WITH this movie. Holy Sith..." said Kevin Smith in the post (click here to see the picture). Fans of the franchise may find it interesting to note the mention of Sith. Perhaps one of the biggest questions about "Star Wars: Episode 7" is whether or not it will mark the return of the Sith. This question will remain unanswered as of the moment though, as there is no official confirmation regarding this.
Meanwhile, IGN speculates the Mandalorians and Sith witches, also known as the Nightsisters, will be the new enemies in the movie. Fans of the franchise who have been following the animation series will be acquainted with both these possible foes. However, as there is no official confirmation about this, fans should take this rumour with a grain of salt.
Another rumour concerns a report from The Mirror regarding the actress who will play the role of a younger Leia Solo. According to the post, Carrie Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, will be taking on her mother's role for "Star Wars: Episode 7." She will reportedly appear in flashback scenes. However, fans will have to wait for the movie or official confirmation to find out the truthfulness of this rumour.
In related news, J. J. Abrams, the director of the upcoming movie, posted a video from the sets of "Star Wars: Episode 7." The video showed the film may use actual constructed sets and alien species rather than relying too much on computer graphics.
Meanwhile, the injury of Harrison Ford, playing the role of Han Solo, may lead to problems in the filming schedule. There are concerns by fans that the character's role in the movie may be scaled down in order to meet production deadlines.
With the actual plot details yet to be revealed, some of the fans of "Star Wars: Episode 7" are jealous of Kevin Smith for getting a chance to visit the sets and learn about some of the most nagging questions about the upcoming movie.
