A franchise like Star Wars has fans in every part of the world and in all kinds of age groups. The minds behind this franchise often do their best to cater to as many fans as possible.
In a recent answering of a fan's prayer, Disney's CEO Robert Iger arranged a screening for The Rise of Skywalker for a terminally ill patient and his family. An unnamed patient requested for the chance to see the conclusion of the Skywalker saga prior to his passing away. The request reached the attention of Iger who made it happen.
Mark Hamill popularly known as Luke Skywalker to Star Wars fans took to Twitter to thank Disney and Iger for fulfilling such a wish. He even added that the patient should enjoy the fact that Hamill himself has not yet seen The Rise of Skywalker.
Many thanks to @RobertIger & everyone at @Disney for making this happen! Hope the Rowan Hospice patient not only enjoyed the film, but gets an extra-special satisfaction in knowing he saw it before I did. https://t.co/qpECeomcCX
