Production has begun for “Star Wars: Episode VII,” and J.J. Abrams wants you to star in the film! Star Wars official YouTube released a video Wednesday to invite one lucky fan to the set. Find out how to enter below.
Disney is teaming up with UNICEF, for a new charity called “Star Wars: Force for Change.” To enter, simply visit Omaze and make a donation to this great cause. One lucky winner will get to bring a friend, and the two will shoot a scene for “Star Wars: Episode VII” and be J.J. Abrams’ VIP guest on set in London. Flight and hotel for two is also included.
“You’ll watch the filming and meet the newest members of the cast,” the source writes. “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.”
The more you donate, the higher your chances are of winning. Entries start at $10, for one entry. Everyone gets a little something though; the $10 entries will receive a Force for Change digital badge.
A $40 entry equals four entries and a digital thank you card from J.J. Abrams and the “Star Wars: Episode VII” cast and crew. Other rewards include posters, thank you videos, T-shirts, lightsaber replicas, a signed script by J.J. Abrams, advance preview screening, and more. For a hefty sum of $50,000 you get 5,000 entries and will attend a private screening.
Who will the money help? The source explains that your donation to support UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and other innovative work for children will fund dozens of life-changing projects. These projects include solar-powered learning kits for China, Uganda, and Burundi so that every child has access to quality learning. Visit the website for all the details.
