    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.

    PLEDGE $50,000 AND YOU CAN SEE 'EPISODE VII' A DAY EARLY

    Everyone who pledges $10 becomes a "founder member" of the Force for Change campaign. All of these members are to be entered into a pool, from which the grand prize winner will be selected, but fans with deeper pockets can earn a higher chance of selection by buying more entries. As with platforms such as Kickstarter, the campaign's structure means higher-spending contributors will receive more valuable rewards for their generosity — give up $50,000, and not only will you vastly increase your chances of selection from the digital hat, but you'll get to see the movie before anyone else as Lucasfilm organizes a private screening for you the day before its release in December 2015. More reasonably priced rewards include T-shirts, Millennium Falcon posters, and lightsaber hilts.

    JJ is worth $99 million.... Can't he spare $1 million instead of asking people to spend their hard earned money in this shitty economy.

    Clearly you are unaware of how Jewish people operate.

    I concur. Abrams suffers from great start syndrome. He can't finish strong.

    "Robin, the move is to get others to contribute and you get credit. Who gives their own money anymore, am I right?"

    1) He is gonna fuck up Star Wars worse than Ep 1-3. Reason: This one has classic characters (Luke, Leia, etc) that will be ruined. Blasphemy.
    2) He has a VERY punchable face

    His television work has gone through the :quote: great start syndrome :quote: but you really can't blame him for that. The networks don't pay to keep him on those series. He stays on in the beginning then hands the production off and starts a new IP.

    Excuse me, but you do realize this is a Howard Stern forum, right? That proves there is no bottom.

    Agreed! They originally cast the actor Jonathan Jackson for the role...but his agent was an asshole and broke the confidential agreement and told people that Jackson had been cast as Anakin. Rumor is George Lucas was so pissed off about the leak that he decided not to go with Jackson and went with his second choice...Hayden.
