Since the announcement of Disney acquiring the Star Wars franchise with the sole purpose to produce more Star Wars movies, the first thought that went through my head was, “YES THIS IS F&@%!#G AWESOME!!!”. The second thought that went through my head was, “Now… how in the hell am I going to figure out a way to somehow get cast in one of these new movies???”. Well, it seems J.J. Abrams and the rest of the folks in the Star Wars camp have just provided me with an answer to the at question.
Star Wars: Force For Change
My dreams are grandiose and over-inflated when it comes to my Star Wars aspirations, but being a man of reason, beggars can’t be choosers. I would literally take any role they give me just to have my name immortalized within the most amazing story in all of creation and time, via my 10-point font size, brief name mentioning during the rolling credits at the end of the movie. I’m fine with that. To me, accomplishing that means I die a happy man. I mean… I’d LOVE to be a lightsaber-wielding, ultra-force-awesome Jedi, acrobatically cutting down evil Sith and wrong doers across the galaxy. Who wouldn’t? All the same, my standards feel no compromise has been made if I’m just a random alien in a market scene, selling mushrooms on a stand, that my character has harvested from his moisture farm evaporators. See? I already know my humble back-story. And it’s all for the greater good, which couldn’t be a more fitting creed for a Jedi Knight at heart, like me.
Straight from the horse’s mouth, here is what Force For Change is all about…
Star Wars: Force for Change is a brand new charitable initiative from Disney and Lucasfilm in collaboration with Bad Robot dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. The first Star Wars: Force for Change campaign will raise funds and awareness for UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and its innovative projects benefitting children in need.

As if getting new Star Wars movies wasn’t enough for you to be grateful and help out a great cause, J.J Abrams and Star Wars are offering some exclusive perks to the fans who are gracious and giving enough to donate. Here’s a look at them…
So there you have it. Start figuring out your fundraising plans or be like me and launch 8 or 9 different kickstarter crowd sourcing funds. Actually, don’t do that because as far as I’m concerned, you’re all my competition and I’m dead set on beating every last one of you then gloating about it to you later. Seriously.
I’m not really serious, but I do want to know if you’re going to donate and the number of entries you’re going for. Hit me up in the comments and while you’re at it… just say how much you love Star Wars because it makes my day.
I’m all Star Wars all the most of the time on facebook, twitter and instagram, so come add me up and may the odds be ever in your favor… NO NO NO!!! Not that Hunger Games nonsense. Check that. What I meant to say was, and may the Force be with you… always.
