A new tease has been released for the upcoming Star Wars flick that involved a fan getting a gift that he did not see coming.

'Episode VII' To Take Place In A Glowing Forest?

Director J.J. Abrams released a couple videos on Star Wars: Force For Change, which is a contribution that fans can help with to raise money for the United Nations Children's Fund where a lucky winner would receive a prize of being in the movie.

On Bad Robot's Twitter page, a message was sent on Monday from Abrams on how the contribution went as well as who the winner is.

"Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to Star Wars: Force For Change! Over five million dollars were raised to help UNICEF innovation labs! We are all so grateful. DC Barnes, see you on set!- JJ," the message says with what appears to be a droid holding the note.

That same day, Barnes was seen in a clip where his reaction was caught on finding out the news he would be in the film. He's talking to members in a video screen chat about how he's been a Star Wars fan since 1977 as well as how he had to wait in line outside those days. When he gets asked if he has a favorite Star Wars moment, all of a sudden more of the film's members break into his Denver office with balloons and a big sign saying that he's going to be in the movie.

"To answer your question, this is probably my favorite," Barnes says as he goes back to the computer screen.

Star Wars: Episode VII is expected to hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
