Jon Stewart to Grill George Lucas In Awesomest Interview Ever


Convention nerds, rejoice!

Jon Stewart will be asking the tough questions to George Lucas at Celebration V, the annual Lucasfilm-backed celebration of all things Star Wars. The Daily Show host, who last had Lucas on the show back in January, will join the filmmaker on stage for an hour-long interview about what fans can expect next from the franchise.

The convention will take place Aug. 12-15 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Other guests include Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and several actors who have played Jabba the Hutt.

In addition to the Lucas-Stewart interview and autograph sessions, Celebration V will feature costume contests, a droid-building competition and Last Tour To Endor, a Disney-sponsored sendoff party for the iconic “Star Tours” ride featuring something called the “Death Star Disco.” According to the L.A. Times, Celebration V will also have what appears to be a Star Wars-themed wedding chapel where you can “choose between a ‘light side’ and ‘dark side’ ceremony.” Make of that what you will.
