‘Star Wars’ Special Coming to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Harrison Ford on Star Wars: J.J. Abrams has ‘made an incredible movie’.

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live will host a special Star Wars: The Force Awakens episode featuring cast members Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and John Boyega as well as director J.J. He’s best known for playing one of the coolest movie characters this side of the Dagobah system, but Harrison Ford proved that he’s got a silly side too as he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel dressed as a giant hotdog. It’s really, really good,” Ford, who wore a hot-dog costume on Kimmel’s show, told the late-night host. (Kimmel himself was dressed as Princess Leia.) “The new cast – Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac – are phenomenal,” Ford continued. “J.J. has made an incredible movie. He also refused to reveal why exactly Luke Skywalker has been so elusively absent from the film’s marketing, but confided that the hugely anticipated movie is ‘really, really good.’ Speaking of how the crash affected his memory, he added: ‘I’m told by the doctors that the amount of general anaesthetic that I got induced a retrograde amnesia.’

At first, Ford didn’t seem to be particularly forthcoming. “What is there to say, and why would you want to say anything?” he rationalized about the hyper-secretive next chapter of filmdom’s most beloved franchise. “I want the audience to experience it, I don’t want them to hear anything.” (Of course, anyone who really can’t wait to find out what happens can watch Stephen Colbert lay it all out.) Ford’s reluctance didn’t stop Kimmel from grilling him on some of the pressing questions that have cropped up in these final weeks before the film’s release. J.J. has given me a chance to have a really wonderful part in a great movie.” In the wake of the Star Wars: Force Awakens trailer release last week, many fans wondered why Luke Skywalker was not featured on the film’s poster (or acknowledged by the trailer). But if Ford wasn’t going to spill any huge secrets, he made sure not to leave without telling fans the one thing they most want to hear about The Force Awakens: “It’s really, really good.

Ford provided a reason on Thursday night: “There wasn’t room,” he joked, before adding that there was “a very good reason” Skywalker did not appear. Trust me.” The film opens on December 18th — until then, we’re going to have to take Han Solo’s word for it. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings.

Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.
