Rowans Hospice, a charity, took to Twitter to appeal the makers to grant this wish of the dying fan. The tweet read, “Can you help? We have a patient who’s a HUGE #StarWars fan. 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.”‘

Bob Iger, Disney’s Chairman and CEO, responded to the tweet by saying, “On this Thanksgiving, we at @Disney are grateful to be able to share #TheRiseOfSkywalker with a patient and his family @RowansHospice. May the force be with you and with us all!”
