J.J. Abrams and Chewbacca Take the Twizzler Challenge

While Princess Leia would just as soon kiss a Wookiee, J.J. Abrams would rather simply share a Twizzler with one.

Taking up Jimmy Kimmel's Twizzler Challenge, intended to raise funds (and awareness) for autism, the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" director recorded a video of himself sharing the candy, "Lady and the Tramp"-style, with Chewbacca. For his effort, Abrams rewarded with a hug, and what looks like a mouthful of fur.

I'm guessing the video, shown last night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," was shot over the weekend at Star Wars Celebration, which would explain the costumed figures in the background.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" opens Dec. 18.
