Exclusive: Jon Stewart to interview George Lucas at 'Star Wars' Celebration V

jon-stewart-george-lucasStar Wars junkie Jon Stewart will be spending some quality time with franchise creator George Lucas this August, EW.com has learned exclusively. The Daily Show host will interview Lucas live in a one-hour conversation at Star Wars Celebration V, an annual fan convention, in Orlando, Florida, Aug. 12-15. In their conversation, dubbed The Main Event, Stewart and Lucas will discuss the history of the Star Wars saga and delve into the arcana of the multi-billion-dollar series. Stewart is a huge Star Wars fan – Lucas appeared on Stewart’s show back in January when the filmmaker was promoting his book, George Lucas’s Blockbusting, and the two had great banter with each other – but fans who may be worried that Stewart won’t ask their hottest burning questions can submit their own at www.starwarscelebration.com.

Also on tap for the convention this year is Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) plus the actors who played C-3PO, Boba Fett, Chewbacca and others. The official Lucasfilm-hosted event will also feature Star Wars Laser Tag, a Star Wars Celebration Chapel and sneak peaks into Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And of course, a fan convention would not be complete without a costume contest. Star Wars Celebration will feature four pageants for fans to model their intergalactic finery. And for those who can’t wait to see Lucas and Stewart, here’s a reminder of their chemistry together earlier this year.
