Message from J.J., Episode VII X-wing Revealed

By: Lillian Skye

J.J. Abrams is back with another video update on Force for Change and speaks to fans from London from what appears to be the set of Episode VII. In the video, Abrams encourages fans to support Force for Change, noting that there is still one week left to donate and that the campaign has supporters from 119 countries. The money raised from Force for Change will benefit UNICEF, and each donation counts as an entry. Every person who donates will be entered in a drawing for a chance to film a scene in Episode VII. In the final week of the campaign, fans also have the chance to win a private advanced screening of the movie in their home town.

What's special about the video, however, is what's unfolding around Abrams. As J.J. addresses the fans, the camera is slowly zooming out, revealing a large vessel behind the director. As the video progresses, the entire ship is revealed and a pilot walks across the sand and towards the vehicle. Abrams steps out of the pilot's way as he ascends the ladder and climbs into the ship.

Star Wars fans took to Twitter, questioning the authenticity of the vehicle and prompting a response form the official Star Wars twitter account, which confirmed that the ship is "an Episode VII X-wing."

"Thanks for your support. Hope to see you on set this summer," Abrams says as a mouse droid zooms past his feet. See the entire video from Abrams below, and support Force for Change for the opportunity to win a trip to the Episode VII set to film a scene in the movie.
