'Lightsaber's Lost': Nerdist Dudes Parody 'Star Wars' For Charity Race (VIDEO)

Nerdist is hosting its 2nd annual Course of the Force, a charity relay right before Comic-Con with all proceeds going to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. This year, the web outpost that celebrates all things nerdy is producing a web series with Broadway Video (the "SNL" production company) that should appeal directly to Nerdist fans who also love "Star Wars" (who are we kidding -- that's all Nerdist fans).

In this first episode, Matt Mira is dancing to Justin Timberlake with R2-D2 (you know, like normal) when Moshe Kasher informs him that the lightsaber that will be used for the Course of the Force has gone missing. Chris Hardwick -- in a Princess Leia costume, for some reason -- sends a transmission to Matt to help him find it.

Check out the clip above to watch the first episode, and tune in next week to watch the second installment.
