Director J.J. Abrams has released a video message from the set from Abu Dhabi, offering you and a friend a chance to win a cameo in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII.’ In the video, Abrams introduces the ‘Star Wars: Force for Change,’ which he describes it as a “brand new initiative that’s dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. It’s about helping kids all around the world by supporting UNICEF Innovation Labs and Programs.”
The initiative is a collaboration with Disney, Bad Robot, Lucasfilms, and UNICEF Innovation Labs. All you have to do, is head on over to the Omaze page and donate a minimum of $10, to be entered to win this once-in-a-lifetime experience that every Star Wars fans fantasizes.
What You’ll Do (via Omaze):
Star Wars fans, movie lovers, and dreamers, this is it. The return of the most beloved franchise of all time, and we’re excited to share it with you in the biggest way possible: by giving you the chance to be immortalized as a member of the Star Wars universe. You and one lucky friend will be flown out to London, where you’ll go behind-the-scenes on the closed set of Star Wars: Episode VII as our VIP guests. You’ll watch the filming and meet the newest members of the cast, but that’s not all. You’ll also be in the movie! You will be transformed by our makeup and costume teams into a Star Wars character to be filmed for an actual scene in Episode VII.
Who You’ll Help:
Star Wars: Force for Change wants to create a brighter tomorrow for thousands of kids and families around the world. With your help and creativity we can develop innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges.
