ESPN’s Jedi tricks

Still unable to go to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters, Mark Hamill is now slated to host an ESPN Star Wars special connecting the world of sports with the world of Star Wars. The half-hour special spotlights “the sport and athleticism behind the choreography and training utilized in the making of Star Wars lightsaber duels,” and will air on Dec. 15 at 7p on ESPN. Star Wars: Evolution of the Lightsaber Duel saw the crew visit the 2015 Kendo World Championships in Japan to gather interviews and information to explain the genesis of kendo and how it applies to Star Wars lightsaber duels.
