Every year, comedian Chris Hardwick and the Nerdist gang participate in the Star Wars-themed relay run called “Course of the Force,” where participants run down the California coast from the Skywalker Ranch in Marin County to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Last year, participants raised more than $100,000 for the charity, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening diseases and disorders.
However, as the Nerdist team prepares for this year’s event, there seems to be one big problem. The official lightsaber for “Course of the Force” is missing, and Matt Mira and Moshe Kasher are frantically trying to find it before the race begins in July.
The quest for the lightsaber is the premise behind the Nerdist’s latest web series “Star Wars: Course of the Force.” A new episode will premiere on the Nerdist’s YouTube channel each Tuesday through July 2.
Check out the first episode of “Star Wars: Course of the Force” in the video above.
