J.J. Abrams, Omaze Give Fans A Chance To Win A Spot In Star Wars: Episode VII
In a video address from a bustling Abu Dhabi set, J.J. Abrams announced to Star Wars fans that you can now enter a contest to win a chance to appear in 'Star Wars:Episode VII'. It's all part of this new collaboration between the Abrams' film production and the charity 'Omaze' that raises money for charitable initiatives by offering the public the opportunity to win once in a lifetime experiences. The money raised from 'Star Wars Force for Change' will be going to Unicef's children's fund, which makes this a truly worthy cause.
Check out the video up top and keep an eye out for the guest appearance. Yes, that's officially our first look at an alien being from the new Star Wars project and you're probably thinking what we are...thank god it's not computer generated! While this short video of the set is only a tease, it's clear that Abrams is sending a message to his fans that Star Wars is getting back to its physical effects roots.
We're just a little excited...and relieved.
