While most people were busy sobbing over the newest "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer yesterday, "Jimmy Kimmel Live's" Guillermo casually met up with director J.J. Abrams (while dressed as Leia) at a 4-day Star Wars convention in Anaheim. Much like every other reported segment Kimmel has every done, this one contained some spectacularly odd and trollish moments.

Things we learn: Beyonce will not be starring in "Force Awakens," Abrams has never been probed and, lastly, he absolutely believes in spaceships. "Good luck on space, J.J.!"
