Star Wars: Force for Change

Long before the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, our first look at the sci-fi sequel came from vidoes release in conjunction with the Star Wars: Force for Change fundraiser that was created in coordination with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The end of the fundraiser culminated with a single fan being granted the dream of visiting the set and getting a walk-on role in the film. Well, now director J.J. Abrams has returned from the set of Episode VII to thank everyone who donated and helped raise millions of dollars. You just might see a familiar droid and Wookiee. Watch!

Here's the Omaze video with J.J. Abrams thanking those who donated to Star Wars: Force for Change:

Thanks to SlashFilm for pointing this out. Check out the previous videos here, here and here.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, not to mention other standalone movies in this universe. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th, 2015.
