Watch For This Easter Egg In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens set to open in theaters this week, we thought this was a good time to remind you easter egg hunters that director J.J. Abrams agreed to plant Conan O'Brien's favorite catchphrase, "Jub-Jub," into the film.

Back in 2013, Abrams appeared on Conan -- five months after being hired by Disney and LucasFilm to direct the new Star Wars movie -- and was asked by the late night talk show host if he could put "Jub-Jub," a nonsensical word that he coined ages ago when writing for The Simpsons, in the film. J.J. immediately agreed to Conan's request and shook on it.

Check it out in the video below.

In this continuation of the Star Wars saga, balance returns to the Force as the First Order, emerging from the ashes of the Empire, clashes with the Resistance, which includes scrappy newcomers as well as heroes from the former Rebel Alliance.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in U.S. theaters on December 18.
