The Force for Change campaign offers exclusive backer rewards in a Kickstarter-esque promotion starting at $10 USD, all the way up to $50,000 USD. Enticements includes signed scripts and concept art, replica lightsabres, a VIP tour of Lucasfilm and advance screenings of Star Wars: Episode VII. One winner will also get the chance to visit the Pinewood Studios set in London and even film a cameo appearance. But it's not all about what you can get - it's about supporting a worthy cause.

The announcement video below also gives fans a sneak peek at the Tatooine set in Abu Dhabi, in a presentation to camera by Director J.J. Abrams. The video provides further evidence of the lengths the production is undertaking to please fans, showing a new prophetic puppet alien that wouldn't look out of place in A New Hope. And that's precisely the point.
