JJ Abrams Announces Contest From Star Wars VII Set

First Look at New Creature From Star Wars 7

We at Nerd Speaker are super excited to know that there is new Star Wars on the horizon, so we were pretty pumped to see some footage, albeit brief, of the new set in Abu Dhabi. Tatooine, perhaps? While JJ Abrams talks about his excitement that filming is underway, this plucky fellow to the left shows up. It's comforting to see that Abrams is still using puppets and costumes in the style of the original trilogy.

Abrams then announces a charity contest in which every $10 donation to UNICEF gives you one chance to actually be in Star Wars VII, in full makeup and all. You can bet there will be some starstruck geeks out there willing to spend a pretty penny to have a chance to be in Star Wars, and donations also grant you prizes such as posters and t-shirts for lower donations, and replica lightsabers and preview screenings for the big rollers. Definitely an exciting way to donate to charity!
