New footage of Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted during ABC's TGIT line up of Scandal, Grey's Anatomy and How to Get Away With Murder.

The minute long footage was introduced by TGIT showrunner Shonda Rhimes and features new scenes between Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) as well as Rey and Han Solo (Harrison Ford).

We also get more glimpses of the epic dogfights between the Millenium Falcon and the Imperial Tie Fighters as well as a blink-and-you'll-miss-it look at the Rebel Alliance war room.

By debuting the footage during TGIT, Disney achieved some clever synergy between ABC and Lucasfilms, both of which it owns. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on Dec. 18.
