J.J. Abrams knows exactly how to get Star Wars fans riled up! There is only one week left in his fundraiser with Disney and UNICEF, and he just revealed a key prop from the film in a new video to encourage people to apply. Come see the new X-Wing Starfighter!
The fundraiser, called Force for Change, will bring money to UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and Programs. The official goal is to solve the planet’s biggest problems, like hunger. Every time someone donates money to the cause, they are entered to win an actual role in Star Wars VII, along with a tour of the set in London. In the video below, JJ also announces an additional prize—the chance to host an early screening in your hometown! You can donate here. Now check out the video!
The camera slowly pans back to reveal the X-Wing. Did you feel a little shiver of excitement? The movie is scheduled for release in Christmas 2015. Can’t wait!
