J.J. Abrams gave the world its first glimpse at a battle-worn X-Wing from Star Wars: Episode VII this morning in a video promoting the Star Wars: Force For Change campaign. Launched back in May of this year, Force For Change sought to raise funds for the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund’s Innovation Labs, which aims to spur innovation in UNICEF’s means of reaching out.

By giving anywhere between $10-$50,000 through the campaign’s Omaze page in the next four days, fans will be entered into a raffle to shoot a scene and be in the next Star Wars film and tour the London set with Abrams. Supporters are also entered to win the chance to host an advanced screening of the film for themselves and 20 friends.

The Daily Star reports on an exchange between UK talk show host Alan Carr and Star Wars' Princess Leia Carrie Fisher, in which she orders him not to out C-3PO as gay:

He said: “Could I be C3PO? I’d make a really good one.

"He’s a bit gay.”

Shocked Carrie, 57, told him: “You can say that but I’m not going there.
