Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert Duel Over ‘Star Wars’ Fan Supremacy
(CBS SF) – In May, “Star Wars: Episode VII” director J.J. Abrams took to YouTube to promote Disney & Lucasfilm’s UNICEF contest “Force For Change” on Omaze.com. The winner and their guest will get behind-the-scenes access to the movie making process and appear in a scene in the upcoming movie. Self-proclaimed “Star Wars” fans Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert also filmed a skit on YouTube for the contest by duking it out to prove who was the bigger fan.
The skit starts with Colbert sharing the news of the contest to Stewart, but turns competitive when Stewart dons a Jedi cloak and challenges Colbert to an all out duel.
At one point when Colbert questions Stewart wearing Obi Wan’s attire while wielding Darth Vader’s lightsaber. Stewart back down and said “my blue Obi Wan lightsaber has no batteries in it.” The skit ended with Stewart dressed as Princess Leia. You have to watch it to understand:
In the previous video skit for the contest, J.J. Abrams is seen on the “Star Wars” set in Abu Dhabi talking about the contest as realistic alien creatures wander around behind him. The winner of the contest will fly to London where production on “Star Wars: Episode VII” is underway. The contest itself ends on July 18.
