Yesterday, Good Morning America announced that Star Wars: The Last Jedi's Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley would appear on this morning's show to make a "big announcement". We had some predictions as to what that announcement might be, and guess what? Turns out, we pretty much nailed it.
The big announcement: a new Force For Change contest. Everyone who enters said contest (by donating to Force For Change, which benefits Unicef and the Starlight Children's Foundation) will be entered to win one of several amazing prizes, including:
- An overnight trip for two to Skywalker Ranch (includes a tour of the Archives and a private screening of Star Wars: A New Hope)
- A visit to the set of the Han Solo movie (as well as a chance to appear in the film)
- A trip to the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (includes a run through the Red Carpet gauntlet)
Here's Hamill and Ridley announcing the contest on Good Morning America this morning.
You can read much more about how all this works over at this page, including what prizes you'll definitely earn by donating (kick in $50 and you'll be entered to win one of the big prizes, but you'll also get a BB-8 patch; throw in $100 and you get a shirt). Great contest, great prizes, for a great cause: what more do you monsters want?
Stay tuned all this week for more Star Wars content than you can shake a stick at. Not only is it the 40th anniversary of the franchise, but our Star Wars Celebration coverage begins this Thursday (pssst: word on the street is, we'll have a Last Jedi trailer before the week ends).
