J.J. Abrams wants you to donate $10 for the chance to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII. Abrams, who is directing the upcoming sci-fi sequel, appeared in a video recorded at the movie's Abu Dhabi set today to help announce a new charity campaign run by Disney, Lucasfilm, and his own production company, Bad Robot. The initiative, called Star Wars: Force for Change, will begin its charitable venture by asking people to donate $10 or more to UNICEF for the opportunity to play a role in the galaxy far far away.

Abrams explains the charity campaign in the midst of a ramshackle market, as crew members, performers in costume, and a new ostrich-like alien carrying a box of space-turkeys saunter past. The randomly chosen winner of the grand prize and one partner will be flown to Episode VII's Pinewood Studios set as guests of J.J. Abrams. There, they'll be "transformed" by costume and makeup teams, before being given roles in the next Star Wars movie. It's unclear what those roles will entail -- Episode VII's story is so well-protected Bothan spies are yet to reach it -- but the opportunity to put on a furry mask, hang around in the back of a shot, inspire the invention of an alien race of wolf-people or bobble-headed oddballs, and eventually have books written about you is enticing. Abrams' early support for the campaign also suggests the scenes featuring the winners are unlikely to be left on the cutting-room floor in the movie's final edit.

Great! I'll take the part of Super Director / Producer and sack the
pathetic Abrams imbecile.

As far as directing, Abrams can only be an improvement on Lucas. I'll reserve judgement until I see the new film.

Nope. He will definitely be worse since he will try and shovel his own
idioctic ideas and ill-fitting nonsense into the franchise, just as he
did with Star Trek. It's also highly likely that he'll make an
incomprehensible mess where nothing makes sense, as he did with Alias
and Lost. JJ Abrams is a talentless hack who shouldn't even be allowed
to scrub the toilets on a TV / movie set. :-(
