The force is strong with Stewart vs. Colbert's hilarious Star Wars trivia battle

You've never seen a Star Wars trivia contest quite like this.

As you might've heard, a little movie called Star Wars: Episode VII is in production over in London right now, and you've still got a chance to both be in the flick and help children around the world. See, a couple of months ago, director J.J. Abrams and company launched "Star Wars: Force for Change," a fundraising campaign to benefit UNICEF Innovation Labs and programs, which help some of the world's most vulnerable children. If you donate at least $10 to the campaign, you're automatically entered for a chance to travel to London, meet the Star Wars cast and crew and, most exciting of all, appear in the movie

It's an exciting opportunity to both help a great cause and get a cameo in one of the most anticipated films of all time, but you're likely to have some stiff competition for that trip to the Star Wars set, particularly now that Star Wars superfans and Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have heard about the campaign.

In a just-released promotional video for "Force for Change," Colbert and Stewart both discover the campaign and, in an effort to prove which of them is the world's biggest Star Wars fan, agree to engage in a trivia contest. There are a couple of trivia questions involved, but mostly things just start to get weird (spoiler alert: one of them ends up in a Princess Leia costume).

Check out the video above, and if you can, make a donation to "Force for Change" by going to the fundraising page HERE. There are just seven days left to try and win that Star Wars part.
