It's a very exciting time for the Star Wars fandom at the moment, what with the recent success of Rogue One, the upcoming Han Solo movie and, of course, The Last Jedi's impending release – complete with a new trailer rumoured to be dropping very soon.

More exciting than all of that, though, are the three amazing opportunities Star Wars Force for Change are offering for the franchise's 40th anniversary – and they're all for a good cause, too.

So, if you've ever wondered what it'd be like to visit George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch in California, appear in a Star Wars movie or mingle with Rey and Luke at Episode VIII's world premiere, then you're in luck.

But don't just take our word for it, listen to Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill explain all below.

Unsurprisingly, whoever manages to bag the coveted prize of appearing in the Han Solo spin-off movie is in for a treat – or at least that's what Rogue One's director Gareth Edwards thinks.

While tecently admitting that he was "really jealous" of the Han Solo project's directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, Edwards added that he was "very excited" for what the pair have in store.

"It'll be a completely different film to what we did," he said. "I think they've got the hardest task.

"Out of all the films that I heard about, that one is probably the greatest challenge and they're going to knock it out of the park, but I wouldn't have the balls to do that."

The film, which is out next year, will see Alden Ehrenreich take on the role of the young Han Solo, alongside Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. Woody Harrelson and Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke are also on board.

Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley both star in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will arrive in cinemas on December 15.
