Attention Star Wars fans: Have you ever wanted to set foot on the fabled Skywalker Ranch? Or maybe you dreamt of being immortalized on screen in one of the upcoming spinoff films? Well, your chance has come to enter a contest so epic that it’s the size of a Star Destroyer. It’s all a part of celebrating the 40th anniversary of the franchise and the name of supporting good charity. Trust us, you’re going to want to enter. Starting today, you will have 30 days to live out your dreams from a galaxy far, far away.
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Daisy Ridley (Rey) announced the next Star Wars Force For Change Fundraising Initiative that will support two worthy organizations, UNICEF and the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures is partnering with Omaze, the place that comes up with these dream fan experiences in exchange for charitable donations, and will offer a memorable prize each week of the campaign.
Past Prize: An overnight stay at the Skywalker Ranch at Marin, California, that will include a tour of the Lucasfilm archives, the grounds and vineyard, a screening of the 1977 Star Wars: A New Hope, and one night’s stay at the on site bed-and-breakfast.
Present Prize: Join the cast on the red carpet at the premiere of Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (in theaters December 15) to be one of the first fans to see the film and attend an exclusive afterparty.
Future Prize: A VIP set visit and chance to appear in the upcoming Han Solo movie (currently filming in England) and meet directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. You can also try to nag them about details about the movie but good luck getting them to crack.
One random entry will be selected for the grand prize, all three experiences combined. Flights and 4-star accommodations for each winner and one guest will be provided.
