YOU Could Be in STAR WARS Episode VII!


That’s right, YOU could win a part in the new Star Wars movie! JJ Abrams announced a new contest to be a part of the Star Wars legacy and help children.

Speaking from the set in Abu Dhabi, Abrams says that, as a fan himself, he is grateful to all the fans for their support and patience. For this support, a contest is being launched for a lucky fan to win a part in the new movie! The winner and a guest will be flown to the set at Pinewood Studios in London, see the behind-the-scenes of filming, go through hair/ makeup/ and costume, and be IN Star Wars!

But, as he says, the greatest part is that by entering, you get to help launch Star Wars: Force for Change, which supports UNICEF Innovation Labs and Programs. This new initiative dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems and helping children all over the world. Donation levels begin at $10 to be Founding Member Support and receive one entry all the way to Jedi Grand Master of the Order, which includes added benefit of a private (20 people) advance screening of the movie when it comes out…only $50,000 for 5,000 entries!

Promotion begins 12:00:01 Pacific Standard Time May 21, 2014 and ends on 11:59:59 PM Pacific Standard Time July 18, 2014. Complete rules are on To enter, CLICK HERE.

  • Man, wish I could afford to enter with more than $10. How cool is this?? Also, that alien looks amazing. I’m glad to see the practical fx usage. Everything I see gets me more excited for this movie!

    • So true! While there is no way I could be a Jedi Grand Master of the Order, it is a great opportunity for fans as well as helping children in need. And yes on the practical FX too! The double take Abrams and the alien do is fabulous and not something that works as well in CGI.
