DK recently participated in Roar For Change, a global challenge organized by Lucasfilm and Star Wars: Force for Change in support of UNICEF. The initiative invites fans and families to share their own version of Chewbacca’s iconic roar. For each public post, like, or share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that includes #RoarForChange through May 25, Star Wars: Force for Change U.S. will donate $1 to UNICEF USA, up to $1 million. Funds will be used to support UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children around the world.
Fans can share their best Chewbacca impersonation, don Hasbro’s Electronic Chewbacca mask, or create a Dubsmash using one of Chewbacca’s best-known roars from the Star Wars
saga, which will be hosted on the app’s homepage for the duration of the campaign.
The initiative kicked off with a video
featuring the cast of Solo: A Star Wars Story
, revealing Chewbacca’s diva behavior on the set of the new movie, which hits theaters on May 25.
Check out DK’s video here.
