Video message from J.J. Abrams on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII

05.21.2014

Last week, J.J. Abrams wrote a letter to the cast and crew of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII that basically could be summed up as, "Let's try really hard not to screw this up" (okay, it was a little more heartfelt, but you get the idea). Now, Abrams has another message to give, but it's in video form and for the fans.  In it he says a few words and . . . what's that? Is that freaking alien that's not computer generated?!?!?

Take a look at what the alien's selling here:

Abrams seems like a classy guy, and a hell of a tease. I'm pretty sure he knows fans will be combing each inch of this video to see if there's anything else to spot in what looks like your run-of-the-mill Tatooine market. Star Wars is also a great way to get the word out there on the Force for Change movement that contributes to Unicef.

Here's some details on Force for Change:

Star Wars: Force for Change wants to create a brighter tomorrow for thousands of kids and families around the world. With your help and creativity we can develop innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges. By acting as a Force for Change, your donation to support UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and other innovative work for children will fund dozens of life-changing projects like these in communities across the globe: • Portable, solar-powered learning kits being built in China, Uganda, and Burundi to ensure every child in the world has access to relevant, quality learning. • Mobile phone application developed in South Sudan and Uganda, and used in the Philippines, that helps reunite children with their families after an emergency. • A text messaging solution in Zambia that helps families receive infant medical test results from clinics, in half the time, through mobile phones. Join us! Help create a brighter tomorrow for thousands of kids and families. Be a force for change.

If this looks like something you'd like to contribute to, you can check out some more information here. One lucky person will actually get to take part in a scene from STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and be a VIP guest with Mr. Abrams on the set in London. Sounds like a good time to me!

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will force its way into theaters December 18, 2015.
