Rev Your Engines for Our Virtual Podrace on Twitter

For the first time ever, Starwars.com is taking the most famous Podrace to Twitter! On Jan. 14 at 11am Pacific Time, celebs and Star Wars fans will be revving their engines to compete in a virtual Podrace to celebrate the release of Star Wars: Episode I in 3D!

Join us, along with Boba Fett actor Daniel Logan, The Clone Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi James Arnold Taylor, Fanboys director Kyle Newman, Death Star PR, Robot Chicken, members of Team Unicorn, MTV reality star Liz Lee, TheForce.Net, 501st Legion, and a few surprise guests! Follow along on Twitter by using the hashtag #Podrace to see the action, trash talk and excitement!

You can join in and tweet alongside the racers by using the hashtag #Podrace and picking which character you're representing, such as a Pit Droid crewmember, audience member, concession stand employee, and so on! The Star Wars Twitter will be acting as commentator so you know who's ahead, who's falling behind, and who's being shot at by bounty hunters!

So be sure to follow Star Wars on Twitter here and join us for all the fun on Jan. 14 at 11am Pacific Time!
