With only a year away from release, fans are very much curious to see what is in store for the next Star Wars movie. Die-hard Star Wars fan and cult favorite director Kevin Smith got to experience some insight on the next installment in the Star Wars franchise.
Smith couldn’t go into much detail considering the film is still only a year away, so major details are yet to be revealed. Smith however mentioned in an interview on Good Morning America that J.J. Abrams is, “Doing the lord’s work” and compared Abrams’ directing to not a movie, but “directing a small country”. This is especially apparent when Smith mentioned that he saw an actor from previous movies gave a performance so good, it made him shed a tear. Some may say due to Kevin Smith’s loyalty to Abrams and being a hardcore Star Wars fan, there is a strong bias to his claim for this newest installment. However, career best performance of a regular cast member in these movies is still an incredibly bold claim.
Obviously, Smith didn’t go into much detailed outside of what was mentioned above, not even which actor gave the career best performance due to non-disclosure agreements. Whatever the case, fans are still curious on what Abrams has in store for this next installment, especially due to the highly mixed reactions of The Last Jedi. It is clear Disney is trying to play it a bit safe with bringing Abrams back after how successful The Force Awakens was. Only time will tell if Abrams can strike lightening twice with Star Wars Episode IX.
