Watch: Harrison Ford Talks ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ in Hot Dog Costume on ‘Kimmel’

Harrison Ford stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night to discuss “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” — while dressed in his Halloween costume.

Kimmel, who was dressed in full Princess Leia costume for his last show before Halloween, asked Ford about the absence of Luke Skywalker on the film’s poster.

“There wasn’t room,” Ford quipped. The 73-year-old “Star Wars” vet also added that it has something to do with the plot of the upcoming installment, but he won’t reveal any information beyond that.

“Why would you want to say anything? I want the audience to experience it,” he explained. “I don’t want them to hear about it.”

Without spoiling any of the plot, Ford attempted to satisfy Kimmel and his viewers with a comment on the film’s quality.

“I can tell you this: It’s really, really good,” he said. “The new cast — Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac — are phenomenal. (Director J.J. Abrams) has made an incredible movie. You will not be disappointed at all. I promise you.”

The interview also included Ford reflecting on his early career and thanking “Star Wars” creator George Lucas. The highly anticipated feature is smashing advance ticket sales records, and fans of the franchise are already confident that they will enjoy the latest installment.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens” bows Dec. 18.
