'Star Wars' Director J.J. Abrams Surprises 'Chewbacca Mom' on 'Late Late Show'
She told InsideEdition.com meeting Abrams would be "the ultimate."
The Force has never been stronger with Candace Payne since her purchase of a Chewbacca mask at Kohl's last week, but it appears her 15 minutes of fame are far from over.
Now, her Internet celebrity has climbed into hyperspace as she appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden Monday night, getting the surprise of her life when Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams surprised the mom in a skit.
In the skit with Corden, she tried on the all-too-familiar mask and the host, who seemed agitated at first, said she was doing the wookiee’s growl wrong.
That's when Abrams popped up from the backseat of the car and told Corden that in fact, she had it right and gave some pointers with a mask of his own.
Then, with all three of them donning the Chewis mask, the trio enjoyed an infectious laugh.
In an interview with InsideEdition.com on Friday, Payne said meeting Abrams would “be the ultimate. That man in a genius.”
Now, she has gotten her wish.
In a sit-down interview with the Internet’s favorite mom, Corden also arranged for the real Chewbacca, actor Peter Mayhew, to share some kind words for Payne.
“Candace, you are an inspiration. You attitude and lovely message really resonates in spreading the good word of Star Wars which is why we do what we do,” Mayhew wrote.
Mayhew has also asked to meet Payne next month.
After posting her video of her purchase of the mask, Panye has racked up over 141 million views thanks in part to her charm, joy and of course, her laugh.
Payne had no idea the video would reach the lengths it has.
"I saw the views climb, then the messages started, the calls, I thought 'Jesus, take the wheel,'" she told InsideEdition.com of the overwhelming response the video has gotten.
