Hillary Clinton makes ‘Star Wars’ reference during Democratic debate – watch

'Thank you, goodnight, and may the force be with you'

US Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton ended her closing speech at the Democratic candidates’ TV debate over the weekend by making reference to Star Wars.

New film Star Wars: The Force Awakens recently opened in cinemas worldwide, with Clinton paying homage by saying: “Thank you, goodnight, and may the force be with you”.

Following the remark, online commentators have pointed out that the film’s director JJ Abrams had reportedly donated $1 million to Clinton’s campaign earlier this year.

It has also been claimed that one of Clinton’s team confirmed that she hasn’t seen the new movie yet.
