Star Wars: The Force Awakens invades Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Last night, J.J. Abrams and the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens invaded the Hollywood soundstage of Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they revealed many secrets behind the much-anticipated sequel! Okay, maybe not that many secrets. Adam Driver couldn’t even say if we see his face in the movie or not. Here’s a very brief list of the things we learned from the broadcast:
-Except for some minor color corrections and last-minute technical tweaks, the film is done.
-Only a few select friends and family members of J.J. Abrams have seen the movie.
-The first word spoken in The Force Awakens is “This…”
There you have it. Not much in the way of spoilers, but this is J.J. “Mystery Box” Abrams we’re talking about, and the cast have already said there are contractual financial penalties if they reveal any specific details about the movie. However, we still encourage you to watch some of the fun clips below, which includes a reconciliation between Harrison Ford and Chewbacca after their last tense appearance on the show. There’s also cast members Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Carrie Fisher, the latter of whom whispers the ending of the movie in Jimmy’s ear.
Opening in theaters on December 18, 2015, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and features a new generation of swashbuckling heroes and shadowy villains, as well as the return of fan-favorite smugglers, princesses, and Jedi.

Abrams, the highly-anticipated movie stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max Von Sydow.
