Finn takes center stage in new ‘The Force Awakens’ teaser.

In a new Force For Change video offering tickets for four to the upcoming premiere of Star War: The Force Awakens, past donors to the movie’s charity initiative got a Skype call from a couple of reps from Omaze, the organization that oversees the donations.George Lucas has revealed he has no plans to return to directing Star Wars movies for fear of criticism and the lack of room for “experimentalism” he believes the saga now allows. Only they had a special guest waiting to surprise the viewer: Harrison Ford, who seemed to be having a lot of fun tormenting them. “Is that your boyfriend?” he says, pointing to a photo of Chewbacca in one woman’s home.

He told Vanity Fair the saga no longer allowed him the creative room for manoeuvre he once enjoyed. “You go to make a movie and all you do is get criticised, and people try to make decisions about what you’re going to do before you do it,” said Lucas. “And it’s not much fun. This time, the money raised will be split among many charities selected by the stars and filmmakers. ● Africa Cancer Foundation — working to promote the prevention of cancer and to provide holistic solutions for people affected by cancer in Africa. Nominated by Lupita Nyong’o. ● Arts in the Armed Forces (AITAF) — bridging the cultural gap between the United States Armed Forces and the performing arts communities by bringing the best modern American theater to the military free of charge. Nominated by Adam Driver. ● Barnardo’s UK — giving the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children the chance to reach their full potential regardless of the issues they’ve faced in their lives.

Nominated by Andy Serkis. ● Central London Samaritans — Providing emotional support for vulnerable people to alleviate feelings of distress and despair. I started out in experimental films and I want to go back to experimental films.” Lucas revealed his greatest concern over the direction of Disney’s proposed trilogy of new Star Wars films – a new report in Wired magazine suggests the studio’s plans for the saga are open-ended and could continue ad infinitum – was that the force “doesn’t get muddled into a bunch of gobbledegook”. Nominated by Anthony Daniels. ● Damilola Taylor Trust — providing inner-city youths with opportunities to play, learn and live their lives free of fear and violence. Nominated by John Boyega. ● fStop Warrior Project — using digital photography to help wounded warriors successfully transition to the civilian world after medical retirement from the military.

I’m curious about what happened to Darth Vader’s grandkids.” Asked which Star Wars character he would like to be, Lucas chose Jar Jar Binks, in a clear dig at his critics. The bumbling gungan has come to typify the film-maker’s prequel movies about the rise and subsequent fall of Luke Skywalker’s father, Anakin, which while relatively successful at the box office are regarded as terrible by many fans.

Nominated by Mark Hamill. ● PACER — expanding opportunities for children and youth with all disabilities, including mental health challenges such as depression and anxiety. New footage hints at the character’s motivation for quitting the evil First Order as he tells an unknown figure: “You don’t know a thing about me – what I’ve seen.” Finn is also seen battling a stormtrooper with his lightsaber and readying himself for a fight against unknown forces alongside Harrison Ford’s Han Solo.

Nominated by Domhnall Gleeson. ● Union of Concerned Scientists — advancing science-based solutions for our planet’s most pressing problems—from combating global warming to developing sustainable ways to feed, power, and transport ourselves.
