J.J. Abrams has hinted that an X-Wing starfighter will feature in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.

In his latest video from the set of the highly anticipated next instalment of the sci-fi film series the director addresses fans while standing in front of the iconic aircraft.

The 'Star Trek' filmmaker previously posted a video from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, where a number of sequences for the film were shot, offering fans the chance to appear in the movie in return for them donating money to Unicef via 'Force for Change', and he's now extended the prize.

Speaking from Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, South East England, with the vehicle partially responsible for the destruction of two Death Stars looking slightly modified and beat up in the background, he said: ''People from over one hundred and nineteen countries have already participated ... But we're still going. We have one week left, so for this final week we're giving you and a friend the chance to visit the set of 'Star Wars: Episode VII' and be in the movie.''

It's yet to be revealed who will be flying the X-wing starfighter, but Abrams is planning to give a dedicated fan the chance to find out before the film's December 2015 release date.

He continued: ''We're offering something else. A chance to win an advance screening of 'Episode VII' before it hits theatres. By supporting 'Force for Change' you could win a private screening of the movie in your hometown and invite twenty of your closest friends and family.

''We know how much Star Wars means to so many of you and we'd love to share the movie with you first while supporting this truly great cause.''
