Disney screens 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' for dying British superfan

The film which is helmed by director JJ Abrams will see some high intense scene with its characters doing some jaw dropping stunts.

The patient later released a thank you statement to Disney, saying he felt like he won the lottery.

'Thank you to everyone who has helped to make this happen.

The decision to make the patient and his family happier by granting his wish Disney has been on the receiving end of appreciation from Star Wars fans and the internet users alike. And though we still don't have an opening date for this new film, a new sign has been installed where the entrance to this new film-based attraction will eventually go, which is hopefully a sign that we'll see an opening soon!

The hospice personnel launched their social media campaign on Tuesday in an effort to get the attention of Disney executives.

Mr Iger announced on Thursday - Thanksgiving in America - that Disney would be putting on a special screening for the patient.

Days after the initial tweet was posted, a man from Disney turned up with a laptop to provide the goods and the patient was able to watch the film with his son in tow. The hospice released several photos of the big event replete with stormtroopers and a Chewbacca.

That said I have no idea why Archer did not open the bowling on the third morning of the match with the game in the balance. I got to see brothers, sisters, cousins and everything like that.


Rowans Hospice says they are "utterly speechless" that Disney made this happen and can not thank the company enough for doing something so "absolutely phenomenal".

The patients wife added: "We are truly humbled by everyone's support". If you know ANYBODY who might be able to make it happen, please share with them.

'From a simply conversation, to witnessing the out pouring of generosity has been awesome.

The Rise of Skywalker, directed by J.J. Abrams, is set to bring an end to the Skywalker Saga, which has run since the original film, A New Hope, in 1977. The awesome people who have visited, along with the messages and gifts we have received have provided us with an opportunity to talk to our son more about the reality of his dad's condition.

"The response from everyone, including the Star Wars community, has been absolutely phenomenal". Staff threw a Star Wars themed party for the patient and his family.

The makers of the film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker released a new clip which features the jet troopers in action.
