Course of the Force
The lightsaber run that captivated the attention of Star Wars fans around the world in 2012 is returning. Kicking off at the famed Skywalker Ranch, participants will continue the relay run down through San Francisco with several stops along the California coastline before reaching the finish line— arriving just in time for the start of the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con International convention. Nerdist Industries’ founder Chris Hardwick will be back to host the event, with city-stops along the way featuring “Conivals” where fans can celebrate their love of the Saga with live entertainment, expo booths, giveaways and much more. “Our plan to run at Comic-con screaming with a lightsaber worked beyond our wildest dreams. People showed up! Lots of them! In cosplay! And we were able to grant more than 1000 wishes for Make-A-Wish!” said Chris Hardwick. “Last year we started in Santa Monica, this year, Marin, and hopefully next year Tatooine.” The tour stops in Santa Monica on Friday, July 12th and in Huntington Beach on Saturday, July 13th.
