George Lucas may have already faced the tough, no-holds-barred questioning of Jon Stewart this year, but the Star Wars creator was apparently itching for a rematch… and this time, there won’t be an ad break to help him dodge the issues. According to Entertainment Weekly, Stewart will host an hour-long, live-on-stage interview with Lucas entitled The Main Event during August’s Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando, giving the Daily Show host a chance to exercise all his geek muscles and then some. But if you’re worried that he might run out of steam in the fiftieth minute, you’ll be able to submit your own question at the Star Wars Celebration website. Me, I’m hoping this leads to Stewart getting cast in the upcoming Star Wars television show as some distant relative of Han Solo’s.
