The cast to the new "Star Wars" film isn't quite complete.

While last month saw Disney and JJ Abrams announce that Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley would lead a crew of newcomers to the franchise, the studio and filmmaker are opening two more (small) parts in the ensemble — and there won't be any auditions.

Disney announced on Wednesday the creation of the Star Wars: Force for Change foundation, which will work to "find creative solutions to some of the world's biggest problems." Its first mission will see it team with UNICEF Innovation Labs, and to get some buzz — and cash — for the initiative, Abrams appeared in a video from the set of the new "Star Wars" to explain how just $10 could get a pair of fans on location, too.

Here's the deal: For a $10 donation directly to its Omaze.com platform, Disney and Abrams are offering a chance to win some serious perks:

  • Airfare and accommodations to London for one winner and a guest
  • Behind-the-scenes access on the closed set of "Star Wars: Episode VII" as VIP guests of J.J. Abrams
  • Winner will have the opportunity to meet members of the cast
  • Winner and their guest will then be transformed by makeup and costume teams into a "Star Wars" character and filmed for a scene in "Star Wars: Episode VII"

One disclaimer, found on the site: "In any movie, not every scene filmed is 100% guaranteed to make the final cut. But the Star Wars team is taking every measure possible to ensure that your scene makes it into the movie!"

Perhaps using the Jedi Mind Trick will help clinch the winner's appearance.
