Amazon founder Jeff Bezos said he plans to donate most of his wealth to charity within his lifetime, the first time he’s made such a pledge. Bezos is currently the fourth richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $124.1 billion. In an interview with CNN’s that aired on Monday, Bezos confirmed that he intends to donate the majority of his wealth to charitable causes.

He says most of it will go toward fighting climate change, and to people who can unify humanity in the face of deep social and political divisions. As for when? Philanthropy “is really hard,” Bezos said in the interview. “We’re building the capacity to be able to give away this money.” On Saturday, Bezos announced Dolly Parton as the $100 million grant recipient of the Bezos Courage and Civility Award. Bezos has previously given the award to celebrity chef Jose Andrés and CNN contributor and Dream.org founder Van Jones.

Disney is giving its latest Star Wars series, Andor, an unprecedented publicity push going into the Thanksgiving holiday. The company will air the drama’s first two episodes on ABC — along with FX, Freeform and Hulu. This marks the first time a Disney+ Star Wars series has run on the broadcast network. The move comes as the show’s first season finale is set to stream on Disney+.

Andor sees star Diego Luna reprising his Rogue One rebel fighter Cassian Andor. Many critics regard the show as the best Star Wars series yet, its more mature tone, complex morality and strong visual effects make it one critics approve of. Andor has struggled to bring in as many viewers as flashy predecessors such as The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan, but the new push suggests Disney has faith that the series has the potential to draw a bigger audience.

Andor‘s first two episodes will air on ABC Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 9 p.m., on FX Thursday, Nov. 24 at 9 p.m., on Freeform Nov. 25 at 9 p.m. and will be available on Hulu from Nov. 23 to Dec. 7.
