Lucasfilm has released a new video promoting Star Wars: Force For Change — the charitable initiative from Lucasfilm and Disney that donates to the Starlight Children’s Foundation and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in support of UNICEF Kid Power — featuring none other than Mark Hamill as he surprises fans at Star Wars Celebration Orlando last month.
The current force for change campaign which launched back on April 11 and runs until May 11 offers fans the incredible chance to visit the set and appear in the upcoming Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story as well as other exciting opportunities including the chance to spend a night at Skywalker Ranch and attend the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi this holiday season. Every week, a new randomly chosen winner is selected and awarded one of the prizes. At the end of the campaign next week, a grand prize winner will be selected to win all three of incredible experiences. Hamill has also added a bonus prize for the chance to have lunch with him in Los Angeles.
In the video, Hamill surprises fans who were invited to perform several iconic scenes for a 40th-anniversary celebration video unknowingly alongside a special guest co-star, Hamill. You can watch it below.
The Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story which is currently in production has been written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan. The film is being directed by The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller and is slated for release on May 25, 2018.
The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotomo as Chewbacca, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams and Woody Harrelson as Beckett, the young Solo’s mentor.
