Any actual specifics are still scarce for the next Star Wars film, but a new video promoting Star Wars’ partnership with UNICEF shows some footage from the set, and a new alien character.
The puppet alien character making a cameo is likely a background character, but he offers at least a glimpse of what we can expect from the new Star Wars….and I love it. Going back to the roots of using puppets like the original Yoda made by Wendy Froud is exactly the sort of thing I’m excited to see.
In the video below from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, director J.J. Abrams announces the creation of Star Wars: Force for Change, a brand new Star Wars 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.
