The filming of Star Wars: Episode VII is under way, and director J.J. Abrams is as notoriously secretive as ever about plot details. Thankfully, we have received some casting news (the return of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher!), and today we got the biggest reveal yet from the set - a look at the new Rebel Alliance X-Wing fighter plane.

In support of the Force for Change UNICEF campaign, which has already seen help from the likes of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert battling with light sabers, the film released a video with Abrams offering the chance to not only win a visit to the set in London but also a screening of the film in one lucky winner's hometown to contestants who donate to the UNICEF campaign. Perhaps even bigger than the cool prize announcements is the look at the X-Wing fighter plane, complete with a Rebel Alliance pilot entering the cockpit.

There are four days left to enter the Force for Change contest, so hurry and enter for a chance to go where no Star Wars fan has gone before.
