As the "Star Wars: Force for Change" contest enters its final week, director J.J. Abrams appeared in a video uploaded today to deliver a new message: in addition to possibly winning a chance to join the cast of the movie, donors will automatically be eligible for an advanced screening of Star Wars: Episode VII in their hometown, one week before the film hits theaters in December 2015. And while the cause is a good one, with Star Wars fans from 119 countries having already donated to the initiative that benefits UNICEF, it's the video's backdrop that's really grabbing our attention, as the slow zoom-out reveals an X-Wing Fighter in all its glory (albeit in a modified, post-Empire design). Check out the video -- shot on location at London's Pinewood Studios -- below.
