The whole crew was definitely in great spirits, discussing Darth Vader’s return and much more. Confirming the news, Gareth admitted, “It was kind of inevitable.

In one clip, the cast faces grave danger as their spacecraft fails! The other shows Felicty’s character surviving a gun fight against storm troopers before getting saved by K-2SO. For obvious reasons, Alan couldn’t help but swoon over his robotic character. He even joked about spending six months in a unitard for the role! The cast was very proud of their accomplishment, sharing that everyone had already seen the movie at Skywalker Ranch — besides Mads.
Fans couldn’t be more excited to hit theaters when the science-fiction film is released on Dec. 16. The latest installment is about a group of unlikely heroes who join forces to steal the plans to the Death Star. In case you haven’t heard, it’s the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. Just last year, Jimmy dedicated another episode to the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, even featuring J.J. Abrams. It certainly was a well-rounded show this evening, since viewers also got to witness a spectacular performance from A Tribe Called Quest. Keep up the great work!
