Star Wars Episode VII director J.J. Abrams recently announced the creation of Star Wars: Force for Change, a brand new initiative from Disney and Lucasfilm in collaboration with Bad Robot that is dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world’s problems.
The first Force for Change campaign is raising funds and awareness for the United Nation’s Chidlren’s Fund (UNICEF) Innovation Labs.
Disney has already committed $1 million to support the launch of Star Wars: Force for Change. And this is where the fans come in – fans can now contribute directly at Omaze.com/StarWars for a chance to appear in Episode VII.
For each $10 contribution made through Omaze, eligible fans will automatically be entered for a chance to win the Star Wars: Force for Change grand prize.
This grand prize includes: airfare and accommodations in London for the winner and a guest; behind-the-scenes access to the close Star Wars Episode VII set; a chance to meet cast members; and the winner and their guest will be transformed into a Star Wars characters and film a scene for Episode VII.
“The Star Wars fans are some of the most passionate and committed folks around the globe,” says director J.J. Abrams. “We’re thrilled to offer a chance to come behind the scenes as our VIP guests and be in Star Wars: Episode VII. We’re even more excited that by participating in this campaign, Star Wars fans will be helping children around the world through our collaboration with UNICEF Innovation Labs and projects.”
