The Star Wars: Force For Change charity campaign is over. Yesterday, Daisy Ridley urged fans to donate one last time!
Yesterday was May the 4th, the previously low-key and now very much mainstream “Star Wars Day.”
To mark the occasion, as well as to make one last push for the big charity drive Force For Change, Daisy Ridley (who of course plays Rey in the Star Wars saga) did a video promoting the donation campaign:
In the video, Ridley is on the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is currently filming.
She is surrounded by iconic Star Wars characters, and is even handed a gift from John Boyega (it is Star Wars Day, after all) — which turns out to be a Finn action figure. “That is so you,” Ridley mutters, and indeed it is!
She thanks everyone for their donations, and wishes us a (now belated) happy Star Wars day. On May 4, the Force For Change charity campaign officially ended, and the prize winners have been found.
The campaign matched fan donations, which brings the total amount raised to an astounding $2,236,312. A lot of good can be done for that amount of money!
That money will go to the four chosen charities, with Make-A-Wish getting more than $1 million, and the American Red Cross, UNICEF and the Boys & Girls Club of America also receiving substantial sums.
This just goes to show that fandom is indeed a force for good. Well done to everyone who donated!
Carnival Row is fantasy that fucks.

Ahead of the closing of Puffs, Hypable interviewed the four remaining members of the original cast, who will have been with Puffs from its humble beginnings to the very end: Zac Moon (Wayne Hopkins), Andy Miller (Leanne), Stephen Stout (Ernie Mac, and a producer on the show), and Madeleine Bundy (Susie Bones/Harry Potter, and the designer of the show).
The gravity of the Last of Us gay representation cannot be overstated, as it brings LGBTQ+ people to the frontlines of mainstream action/adventure video games for the first time.
There’s not much to be surprised by in The Kitchen, unless you weren’t expecting the body count, but then you probably didn’t know what you were getting into.
The final trailer for the upcoming season of 13 Reasons Why reveals the season’s big murder — and that nearly everyone had a motive for doing it.
The trailer for the holiday romantic comedy Last Christmas starring Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding is here and it is completely adorable.
