TGIF FEATURE: A heartwarming story inspired by Star Wars

In a classroom, far, far away.

TIRED OF all the hate stirred up by the last election cycle? This video might give you a brief breather from the news generated by the incoming administration. 

A partnership between Filipino telecom giant, Globe, and Disney Southeast Asia has produced one of the most touching promos that you'll see this time of year. 
The ad features a shy girl who wears a Stormtrooper helmet to school. You'll discover why she hides behind the helmet but I won't spoil it for you.
The ad is part of Globe's #Create campaign intended to promote and protect the rights of Filipino girls and young women — and this time using the magic of a galaxy far, far away.

With the latest chapter of the Star Wars saga - Rogue One - ready to premiere this weekend in the United States, the timing couldn't be more perfect.
Globe is also offering a chance to win a trip to Florida for Star Wars events, movie tickets, and oodles of merch, ahead of the film's Philippines premire on Dec. 15.
It's OK to say "Awww," or even shed a tear. Go ahead.
