Star Wars Episode VII director J.J. Abrams has released another video message in support of the "Star Wars: A Force for Change" initiative, announced weeks ago as a charitable organization launched by Lucasfilm and Disney to find solutions for some of the problems facing the world.
As with the first video, Abrams has two treats for Star Wars fans. The first is a new possible prize for donating to the initiative's first campaign, raising funds and awareness for UNICEF Innovation Labs and programs. In the previous video, Abrams announced that fans would have a chance to be in Star Wars Episode VII. As the campaign goes into its final week, Abrams is now offering the opportunity for one fan to win a sneak screening of the film, in his or her hometown, for them and 20 of their friends.
The second treat is a sneak peak at a part of Star Wars: Episode VII. In the first video, Abrams was recorded on the Tatoooine set, located in Abu Dhabi, and fans got to see the first alien creature from the film. In this new video, Abrams offers a look at something even more iconic, an X-Wing fighter ship; the same kind of ship that Luke Skywalker famously piloted in the original trilogy.
Fans can donate to the "Star Wars: A Force for Change" initiative at Omaze.com/StarWars.
Star Wars: Episode VII comes to theaters December 18, 2015.
