So maybe there was something to Simon Pegg’s tweets from last month. That’s when J.J. Abrams’ Scotty posted a photo of himself pulling into Harrison Ford’s parking spot, setting off speculation that he was visiting the Pinewood Studios set of “Star Wars: Episode VII.”
Now, an unverified Twitter account seemingly belong to Anthony Daniels, the actor who plays C-3PO, shares that Pegg has been to the set and that they’ve had a lovely chat.
He’s referring, of course, to this College Humor sketch Pegg did with his Cornetto compatriot, Nick Frost.
Is Pegg just swinging by the set to see what’s going on or are the fanboy theorists onto something? We’ll probably find out on December 18, 2015, when “Star Wars: Episode VII” opens in theaters.
