Kimmel also had another big “Star Wars”-related announcement for the show: the entire November 23rd installment will be devoted to “The Force Awakens,” almost a full month before it hits theaters on December 18th.

You can watch the full episode, which includes the Star Wars episode announcement at 21:55, at ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live website.
