A couple months ago, director J.J. Abrams revealed “Force for Change”, which gave fans a chance to win a visit to the set of Star Wars: Episode VII and cameo in the film in exchange for making a donation to UNICEF.  Even if you didn’t win the top prize of the visit and the cameo, there were still prize levels based on the amount of your donation, and most importantly, you were contributing to a good cause.  With only four days left in the “Force for Change” campaign, Abrams has released a new video, which shows a full-scale X-Wing fighter jet.  The movie isn’t kidding around when it comes to practical effects, and it’s a very cool and fun reveal that helps bring attention to “Force for Change”.  Additionally, the campaign has sweetened the deal by giving the winner not only a visit to the set and a cameo, but they’ll win a private, advanced hometown screening.

The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Lupita Nyong’o, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, and Max von Sydow.  Star Wars: Episode VII opens December 18, 2015.
