The Late Late Show host also had a very important surprise for her that you need to see her reaction to.
Candace Payne, AKA Chewbacca Mom, put smiles on faces around the world last week when she uploaded a video to Facebook of her trying on a talking Chewbacca mask in her car and the fit of giggling joy that ensued.
Since she shared the video, it's been seen nearly 140 million times and for good reason. Which made his carpool to work yesterday all the better.
And if the J.J. Abrams surprise wasn't enough, Candace got an even bigger one when she sat down with James on the show.
