See Chris Hardwick’s Induction Into the 501st Legion At Star Wars Celebration VI
by Perry Michael Simon on August 23, 2012
Are you in Orlando for Star Wars Celebration VI? Then you know that our own Chris Hardwick is on hand as one of this year’s hosts for the annual festivities. He’s going to be all over the convention, but if you happen to be able to get to the main exhibit hall at 2 pm Eastern today, you’ll get to witness a special moment. That’s when the good folks of the 501st Legion will induct Chris as an honorary member. It’s a tremendous honor for Chris, and you’ll want to be there.
So, go to the main exhibit hall, look for the Legion’s life-sized Rancor (the video above shows the model under construction), and that’s where the ceremony will take place at 2 pm. While you’re there, stop by the Nerdist booth — booth 1240, back by the Tattoo Pavilion — and enter for a chance to win a Celebration-exclusive Sideshow figure of Clone Commander Ganch. And look for Chris all weekend, and Chloe Dykstra and the Nerdist Channel’s Just Cos crew taping on Friday as well (hurry and email [email protected] if you want to try and get some camera time).
Oh, and hydrate. It may be rainy and Isaac may be looming, but it’s August in Orlando, you know.
