Kevin Smith: Disney Recently Showed Footage from The Force Awakens to European Distributors!

Kevin Smith

Actor/Director Kevin Smith is at Comic Con right now and didn’t miss the chance to share again his experience visiting The Force Awakens set and the Millennium Falcon in particular. In an interview with Hero Complex, Smith also revealed that recently Disney showed new footage from TFA to European distributors, and that he is ready to bet $10 000 that Disney will show a new footage during their panel in Hall H later today…

 

First, if you missed Kevin Smith’s detailed description of his The Force Awakens set visit from last Comic Con, check it out HERE.

 

 

From latimes:

In our exclusive interview with Smith about Comic-Con, the director dismissed rumors that Disney would not show new “Star Wars” footage as “shenanigans.”

 

He then changed gears and got personal, revealing what it felt like to stand inside the Millennium Falcon. It’s a great, long “Star Wars” tale. Seriously, watch this, and try not to get choked up as well.

 

 

You can watch the full video HERE.

 

 

So obviously there is a new footage being shown around. I don’t know why, but many sites reported the “no new trailer” news from Entertainment Weekly as “no new footage will be shown at SDCC”. That’s not what EW said. They said there won’t be a new trailer or clips. This doesn’t mean there won’t be new footage at all. I agree with Kevin and I am ready to bet that we will see new footage from TFA.

 

We’re just 12 hours away from the panel and if the rumors we’ve been hearing are true, prepare to be amazed. We heard that the team will again stress on the practical side of the effects, and they will show us things from the creature shop. Also we’ve heard that they might show us how Daisy Ridley handles herself in a certain fight scene…

      Kevin Smith… Colin Trevorrow….. Obi Wan spin-off being a fake….. how much heartburn can we take before we get some comic con news?????

        I hope Comic Con dies. Info is very disappointing.

  • JeffG

    It’s going to be be a long twelve hours.

    It would be surprising if they didn’t show anything. Mostly because the two recently leaked frames would be easily explained if they were preparing/sharing a preview. It’s worse news for them and a more serious leak, otherwise.

    • Derth Nadir

      Those photos were described and had artist renderings back in April. So they aren’t from recent footage for SDCC.

    This better not be Con-exclusive footage!

      enough of the practical effects. We get it, they’re going back to puppets. Now how about something about the STORY?????

      I may be wrong, but a little bird told me once that story was everything in a movie, not the visuals.

      • David

        Agreed. But try telling that to the Mad Max Fury Road fans.

  • Kraven

    IMO, SW can market itself. If there is a 3rd trailer, hopefully its kept to a minimum and doesn’t reveal too much of the plot.

    • Anonymous

      I agree, there won’t be a lack of hype so less is probably more in this case.

    • Anonymous

      Nobody wants much of the plot, but I still want to see another trailer and clips. If you don’t, don’t watch them. Those of us who want clips or trailers currently don’t have the option to watch them.

        I hate to break it to you and change your perception of the world…. but EVERYBODY wants to know about the story and plot.

        • WalrusMan

          Well I don’t, so your statement is erroneous. It should read everyone except that one random guy on the internet.

    What time is that in CEST?

  • Master Raze GolladioOd

    I’d love to be in the crowd and see Kevin Smith cry joyful tears as he watched the new footage. Then I’d say, “man up, little bitch!” :D

  • Burkeus

    I have a feeling we will see an Official Theatrical Trailer. After all, we are five months out and Disney’s biggest blockbuster before this is going to be Ant-Man, which comes out this week! So yes, it makes perfect sense from a marketing standpoint!

  • Bantha Voodoo

    Kevin Smith looks like a complete tosser dressed like that.

    • Hard Case

      He almost always looks like that. It’s his style…oversized jerseys and a backwards cap. Granted it’s a little bit grade school, but to each his own, I guess.

    • Anonymous

      It…ah…it’s not the clothes. He’s just a giant jackass.

      • Yoda Hosier

        Ah, try for this is what a hockey fan dresses like…so neck face and chest all day SiR dude.

  • SPACEBALL

    I hope he didn’t spend half the time talking about his sex life. = p ( He normally does )

    Sorry, I’m getting mixed messages. Is the panel going to be live streamed or not?

    • Anonymous

      Maybe.

    • StarWars.com will be doing a live blog of the event.

      • Anonymous

        so what does that mean? just text or would photos come through as well?

    • Anonymous

      No live stream video.

  • SPACEBALL

    Man i’d LOVE to see stuff from the creature shop, Masks, puppets, I love it all. = P

    P.s I hope they show what Supreme Leader Snoke looks like.

    If they show footage we proletariat won’t get to see it. CCSD locks that stuff down tight.

      Unless it’s Star Wars we’re talking about.

      We will see a bad leaked video of it.

        Like what happened with Batman V Superman? Maybe with Star Wars it will be different.

  • ELIZAN SLEAZBAGGANO

    So who gets the ten grand when he’s wrong?

    • Dude in a hat

      The IRS or Donald Trump’s “Hair”.

      Take your pick.

    Damn, I love Kevin Smith! I hope he’s right about tonight. Already downloaded the AWESOME app and am checking reports/”leaks” in between some serious gaming today! What a grand day to be a geek or nerd!

    I found this great fan tribute video on Youtube. I think it sums up the life of Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader brilliantly.
    Check it while your waiting for the big event. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VdcMWWh3s0
