‘Star Wars’ Cast, J.J. Abrams to Appear on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Actors John Boyega, Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley will join director on Nov. 23 episode of late-night show

The Force is strong with Jimmy Kimmel.

ABC announced Friday that director J.J. Abrams and the young cast member of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Nov. 23.

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver will all appear alongside Abrams on the episode, which will focus entirely on the upcoming entry in George Lucas‘ epic sci-fi saga.

Franchise star Harrison Ford appeared on Kimmel’s show Thursday night. All Ford would say is “it’s very, very good. The new cast — Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver — is phenomenal. J.J. has made an incredible movie. You will not be disappointed, I promise.”

Carrie Fisher, who plays Pricness Leia, recently interviewed Ridley about taking on a female role in the typically male-dominated sci-fi genre.

“You should fight for your outfit. Don’t be a slave like I was,” Fisher said, referring to the revealing “slave” uniform she donned in the third film of the original trilogy, “Return of the Jedi.”
