 “May the force be with you and with us all!”

Disney lets a die-hard Star Wars fan, who is terminally ill, watch The Rise of Skywalker on a laptop as the patient's dying wish was to see the latest Star Wars film with his son.

The man, whose name hasn’t been shared, is a patient at Rowans Hospice in Hampshire, UK. The hospice tweeted it's a cry for help on Tuesday, saying the man is a “HUGE” Star Wars fan but “sadly, time is not on his side” for the movie’s December 20 release date.

Disney chief Bob Iger responded the same day, saying “we will certainly try.”

Iger followed up on Thursday, tweeting Disney was indeed able to make the man’s wish come true. “On this Thanksgiving, we at Disney are grateful to be able to share The Rise of Skywalker with a patient and his family” from Rowans Hospice,” Iger tweeted. “May the force be with you and with us all!”
