Star Wars: The Force Awakens, an addition to the ridiculously popular, world-famous Star Wars universe, comes out on December 18! ABC is celebrating this 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 Richard Castle and Kate Beckett from Castle!

Castle takes a break from the heavy reality of a current case to try guessing what Beckett is going to give him for Valentine's Day. Watch this and many more hilarious moments in the clip below!


ABC drama fans will find Emma from Once Upon a Time trying to pass as Princess Leia, and you'll also recognize characters from ABC comedies, like Modern Family's Phil Dunphy, Adam Goldberg from The Goldbergs, and Dre & Junior from black-ish

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:
