As part of Autism Awareness Month in the US, Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams and leading wookie Chewbacca have taken the Twizzler Challenge – watch the fun here. 

The Twizzler Challenge sees people share opposite ends of the sweet treat in order to raise awareness for non-profit organisation New York Collaborates for Autism.

Abrams and Chewbacca were issued the challenge by talk show host Jimmy Kimmel after he had taken part with Rihanna.
