Dying 'Star Wars' fan got to see 'The Rise of Skywalker' early thanks to Bob Iger

By

A patient at Rowans Hospice in Hampshire, England, got to see The Rise of Skywalker before its release on the 20th December after the hospice asked Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger for an early screening on Twitter. 

In a tweet, Rowans Hospice explained that the patient might not make it to the release date, and wanted to watch the final episode of the new Star Wars trilogy with his son. 

"We have a patient who's a HUGE Star Wars fan," the hospice wrote. "Sadly, time is not on his side for the 20th Dec. His wish is to see the final Star Wars film #RiseOfSkywalker with his young son. If you know ANYBODY who might be able to make it happen, please share with them. Thank you."
