Dying "Star Wars" Fan Gets Special Viewing Of "Rise Of Skywalker"


How awesome is this! A man with a terminal illness got a special screening of the new “Star Wars” movie, “Rise Of Skywalker.” The hospital in England went to Twitter to announce the patient’s wish: to view the final “Star Wars” film with his son. They asked if anyone could help. And Disney's president Bob Iger saw the tweet and set up a special screening for the man on Thanksgiving day. The patient even got to wear a Stormtrooper helmet and hold a blaster during a “Star Wars” themed party the hospital held for him. The movie, “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” opens in theaters on December 20th. This isn't the first time this has happened. Back four years ago, director J.J. Abrams granted the same wish to a dying fan.
