WATCH: Stephen Colbert Recaps ‘Star Wars’ For China [VIDEO]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is taking over the universe, and that includes China. No big surprise there. Hollywood has kind of become obsessed with breaking into that big Chinese market, and has been sure to add in Chinese angles to movies like Pacific Rim and Iron Man 3.

Star Wars is a little complicated by now, though. Fortunately, good geek Stephen Colbert came out last night with a primer for Chinese people lining up for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s a good idea. Stephen would’ve taken up the entire hour if he was talking about The Hobbit or the Lord of the Rings series. He can knock out Star Wars a little more quickly.

Otherwise, last night’s show was a reminder that nobody’s watching The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. His big guest for the night was Mandy Patinkin. Jimmy Fallon had Channing Tatum and Star Wars’ own John Boyega. We’re pretty sure Colbert never even got a Force Awakens cast member on the show. Well, he’s a good sport…
