The iconic moon backdrop was replaced with an ominous looking Death Star as star Harrison Ford and director J.J. Abrams talk about 'The Force Awakens.'

The Force was strong with Conan O'Brien on Thursday night as he hosted a special Star Wars-themed edition of Conan

The famous moon backdrop was replaced with a menacing Death Star for the night as Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams and star Harrison Ford visited the show. 

In the cold open, rejected characters Jango Fett, Bib Fortuna, Oola sit in a diner and complain about not making the cut for Force Awakens

Later, O'Brien spoke to Abrams and Ford about the film before they were subjected to an unusually specific Q&A from Conan associate producer Jordan Schlansky, who took them to task on the lightsaber continuity error in the franchise. Ford later destroys the Schlansky's prized Millennium Falcon after the producer asks him to sign it.
