Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley Offer STAR WARS Fans a Chance to be in the Han Solo Movie
Yesterday, ABC teased that a big Star Wars announcement would be coming today on Good Morning America that was said to be something "40 years in the making." It definitely got fans hyped and now we have the announcement video for you to watch below.
In the video, Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley appear to promote the latest Force For Change initiative from the partnership of Lucasfilm and Omaze. They offer fans a chance to win some pretty cool prizes including the chance to appear in the upcoming Han Solo movie, tickets to the world premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and an overnight stay at Skywalker Ranch.
It may not be the kind of announcement we were all hoping for or expecting, but it's all for a good cause as it benefits UNICEF and Starlight Children’s Foundation. You'll find the details from the press release below along with the video announcement:
Star Wars: Force For Change in collaboration with Omaze will launch the Star Wars “Past, Present and Future” fundraising campaign to benefit UNICEF and Starlight Children’s Foundation. The campaign is themed around the timeless appeal of Star Wars, with experiences inspired by the saga’s past, present, and future.
