Chewbacca, Star Wars: Force For Change

Star Wars films really haven’t been the same since they started opening in December. But this year is different. Fans will be treated to the franchise’s second spinoff, Solo: A Star Wars Story. But before the film opens on Memorial Day weekend, fans will be celebrating May the 4th. You know, May the Force be with you. It’s a Jedi play on words.

So as we get closer to Solo‘s release, Disney and Lucasfilm have announced their latest charity campaign. Starting today, you can give out your best Chewbacca roar on social media. And if you use the #RoarForChange hashtag, Star Wars: Force for Change will donate $1, up to $1 million. More info and the video can be found below.

Star Wars Force for Change

As expected, the big Star Wars announcement was just that, an announcement. No trailer, but an opportunity for fans to participate in Force For Change, a Star Wars-themed charity program that helps finds solutions for problems that affect the world.

Obviously, this means the trailer will be dropping during Star Wars Celebration, which happens to be this weekend. However, for those who are in a giving mood, you might want to check out what Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill have to say in the video for the newest Force For Change campaign. Check it out below.

Harrison Ford Surprises Star Wars Fans

Omaze has done some great work with the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises to bring a whole lot of money to various charities. The most recent collaboration for a chance to win a walk on role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought in over $4 million dollars, so it makes perfect sense for them to keep the donation party going on behalf of those who need help.

A new collaboration with Omaze is underway that will see someone win a chance to meet the cast of The Force Awakens at the premiere of the movie. And to announce this, they decided to have a little fun and have star Harrison Ford show up and surprise Star Wars fans via webcam to great results. You can read more and watch the video below.

J.J. Abrams With Star Wars: Episode VII X-Wing

Back in May, a video was released from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII featuring director J.J. Abrams talking about a chance to appear in the movie by donating to an initiative through UNICEF that aims to help thousands of kids and families around the world called Star Wars: Force for Change.

Now, with only a few days left, another video with Abrams has been released to announce that if you take part in the initiative this final week not only will you have a chance to win a role in the movie, but also a chance to win an advanced hometown screening of Episode VII for you and 20 of your friends and family. And just as the first video subtly revealed that practical makeup and effects would be a part of the new movie in the appearance of an alien, this new video unveils a full-size X-wing starfighter.

You can check out the video below.

J.J. Abrams On Star Wars: Episode VII Set Image

The first video from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII has been released, but not for the purposes of showing off the movie. The video is to announce an exciting new contest in which one lucky fan will win a trip to London where they’ll be a VIP guest of director J.J. Abrams, meet the cast, see the movie being filmed, and even get the full makeup and costume treatment before filming an actual scene for the movie. That’s right, you could be in a Star Wars movie. Better yet, the contest is to benefit a good cause.

But since all but one person and their friend of choice will get to experience this, the rest of us have to look for something else to be excited about in the video. Enter random alien cameo appearance! Some kind of elderly creature—likely to be one of the many going about their business during a scene in the movie—shows up while Abrams is talking. And while cool, the most exciting part is that it’s a real practical effects creation, hopefully a subtle hint at restrained use of digital effects in Episode VII.

Continue below to check out the video and find out where to enter the contest.
