Disney made a terminally ill Star Wars fans dreams come true. The fans last wish was to be able to see the new Star Wars film “The Rise of Skywalker” (due in theaters December 20th) and Disney allowed him and his family a private screening of the film in his hospice on Thanksgiving.

The wife of the fan said that the outpouring of support from Disney as well as the Star Wars community was overwhelming and they were all humbled by everyone’s support.

In a statement to ABC News after the screening, the man said he felt like he won the lottery. "During what is just a horrible situation to be in, you have helped to make some wonderful memories and bring some joy to my family," the statement reads.
