If you can’t get enough of Chewbacca Mom, then you’re in luck! The joyful viral sensation swung by The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday where Corden surprised her with none other than Star Wars director J.J. Abrams.
In a silly clip reminiscent of Corden’s Carpool Karaoke series, Chewbacca Mom (real name Candace Payne) and Corden buckle up together with Payne behind the wheel. In the short sketch, Abrams himself pops up in the backseat to disagree with Corden after the host tells Payne that the mask doesn’t sound anything like Chewbacca. The director even offers Payne some advice.
“Can I give you one director’s note?” Abrams asks Payne, before going on to show her how to get the most out of her happy Chewbacca antics. By the end of the segment, all three have Chewbacca masks on and are hysterically laughing (and trust us, you will be, too, after watching the video below).
Later, when Payne sat down with Corden for a short interview, the host told viewers that Abrams’ involvement in the sketch was a total surprise. Lucky for us, Corden filmed Payne’s reaction to seeing Abrams for the first time which, as you can imagine, was totally priceless!
