Recently, the “Star Wars” franchise celebrated its fortieth anniversary and has been loved by millions. To celebrate this amazing milestone, it was announced on April 11 on “Good Morning America” that they will be having a contest for three lucky winners to win to have the full Star Wars experience. The campaign has been set up in such a way that all the proceeds from the contest will go to benefit UNICEF and Starlight Children’s Foundation.

The experience to win is titled “Star Wars: Past, Present, and Future.”  The Star Wars website says “The initiative kicks off today, April 11, and runs for four weeks until May 11; fans who enter at will have the chance to win a different prize each week, such as the chance to appear in the upcoming untitled Han Solo movie, tickets to the world premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, or an overnight stay at Skywalker Ranch. Additionally, at the end of the campaign, one randomly selected grand prize winner will be awarded all three Force-filled experiences.”

All of the prizes that you can win are related back to all of the Star wars movies in the franchise, as well as collectible items, autographed trinkets, and more. The biggest prizes that you can win are things that represent the past, present, and future of the Star Wars world. The “past” prize includes things like staying at Skywalker Ranch, tour of the archives and the Ranch, and a screening of “Star Wars: A New Hope.” For the “present” prize, you could win a chance to join the cast and attend the “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” premiere and exclusive after party. As for the “future” prize, you could visit the set, meet the directors, and have the chance to appear in the untitled “Han Solo” movie. Finally, the ultimate grand prize that you can win by celebrating “Star Wars” and their fortieth anniversary is winning ALL THREE: past, present, and future prizes.

So if you love “Star Wars” and you want to participate in this huge contest, just go to and sign up today! It’s for a great cause and you can help celebrate this amazing accomplishment.
