Star Wars fans are excited about the new Star Wars: Episode VII movie that is currently in production, and today there is even more (Substitute word “buzz”?) after a message from director (is that his role?) J.J. Abrams was released on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
The video message from J.J. Abrams on set in Abu Dhabi informs viewers that they have a chance to be IN the new movie and support a great cause at the same time. The Star Wars: Force for Change initiative is raising funds and awareness for UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and its projects benefitting children.
With a pledge as small as $10, you could win this experience of a lifetime! #ForceForChange
Here’s the video. We dare you to watch it and NOT get excited.
So, just to rehash … if you win, you will:
- Shoot a scene for Star Wars: Episode VII
- Be J.J. Abrams’ VIP guest on set in London (watch filming, meet new cast!)
- Be provided flight and hotel included for 2
A great prize for a good cause!! And here’s the response we’ve seen on Twitter so far:
