ABC Celebrates "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"
Not sure if you heard, but there's a little movie coming out on December 18 called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will be an addition to the ridiculously popular, world-famous Star Wars universe! ABC is celebrating this momentous occasion in a couple of ways. Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel Live will feature SW:TFA's director J.J. Abrams and cast Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Carrie Fisher (who played Princess Leia in the original trilogy). And right here, right now, you can watch a montage of some of your favorite ABC characters having some Star Wars moments, including Emma and Hook from Once Upon a Time!
After time traveling through a portal, Emma and Hook find themselves in the Enchanted Forest and score an invitation to a ball at King Midas' castle. Emma introduces herself to the king as "Princess Leia." Watch this and many more hilarious moments in the clip below!
You'll also recognize characters from other ABC comedies, like Modern Family's Phil Dunphy, Adam Goldberg from -- wait for it -- The Goldbergs, and Dre and Junior from black-ish, as well as the ABC drama Castle's Richard Castle hoping to get a gift of lightsabers.
Harrison Ford joined the American Music Awards last night on ABC and introduced a scene from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. ABC's Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder recently discussed Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the ways their characters have had parallels to Star Wars in one way or another. Here's Scandal's Kerry Washington discussing Olivia Pope's Luke Skywalker moment:
