There's a beauty to the corporate synergy displayed by Disney's brands. ESPN has been a big supporter of Marvel over the years, and now is getting in on the Star Wars fun. With the "Evolution of the Lightsaber Duel" special, ESPN is teaming with Mark Hamill to talk about the real-life influences of lightsaber fights, which has its roots in Kendo.

Hamill teased the special on his twitter account over the weekend, with a shot of him holding a lightsaber and generally looking like a badass Jedi.

The special airs, as he said, Tuesday December 15, 2015 at 7pm on ESPN, so tune in to see just how lightsaber fights were built from the real-world to the realms of fantasy.
