This morning “Star Wars: Episode VII” director J.J. Abrams appeared in a new video online revealing a surprisingly large part of the ongoing filming of the highly anticipated film.
In the video, Abrams reminds the world of the ongoing “Star Wars: Force for Change” charity project raising money for UNICEF while offering a chance to visit the Episode VII set. In doing so, he reveals a first look at a beat up new X-Wing fighter, just as an orange jumpsuit-clad pilot enters the cockpit and a Mouse Droid zips past underneath.
It’s been exactly two months since the last set update from Abrams, which offered a first look at a new alien wandering around the background of his first video. The elements featured in today’s video once again emphasize the realness of “Episode VII,” featuring a full size iconic “Star Wars” vehicle, along with a familiar costume and droid – not in CG.
There are only a few days left to donate to the UNICEF charity project and potentially win a trip to see Episode VII being filmed, among many other prizes.
Star Wars: Force for Change impressively raised over one million dollars within the first 24 hours of its launch. So far contributors from 119 countries around the world have backed Force for Change, in support of the United Nations Children’s Fund’s Innovation Labs and programs.
