Disney Grants Dying Star Wars Fan’s Wish Of Watching Episode IX Early

Time isn’t always on our side, especially when we’re stricken with a sickness that indicates we don’t have much time left in the world. Such is the case of one Star Wars fan in the UK and thankfully, he’s gotten the attention of Disney.

Disney’s chairman and CEO Robert Iger recently tweeted out that Disney will be showing Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker early to a terminally patient at Rowans Hospice in Hampshire England. This was in response to the Rowans Hospice Twitter page tweeting out a request back in late November and garnering more than 1,000 retweets.

One of the biggest reasons why this got the attention of people at Disney is thanks to Mark Hamill himself being one of the people that respondedto the tweet. He urged the hospice to directly contact Disney and wished them “Good luck!” in making sure the patient’s wish is fulfilled.

The screening was carried out on 29 November 2019 and the patient himself has expressed great appreciation towards Disney and everyone that came together to make this possible for him and his son. To him, it’s the equivalent of winning a million pounds.

“I am a huge Star Wars fan and what I am going through is completely dire. Then to top it all, I thought I wasn’t going to see the film I have been waiting to see since 1977! I still can’t believe it. The only way I can describe this to you is to say that this must be what it feels like to be told you have won a million pounds!”

It’s these kind of stories that remind us why we love Star Wars. It’s about people banding together to make dreams come true and show that the Force isn’t just something limited to a galaxy far, far away but that it’s also what connects us all in our love for each other and for the heroes that we see on-screen.
