It's the season for heart warming stories!

A story out of England went viral as a hospice was trying to fulfill a patients last request. As he is terminally ill and not likely that he would make it to the December 20th release date of Star Wars.

So fans on social media reached out to everyone including Mark Hamill and Disney CEO Bob Iger to help make the man's wish come true. It has been confirmed by Bob Iger that the man and his son have seen the movie.

Bob Iger tweeted, 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.

In a statement, the patient who would like to remain anonymous said, 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. I thought I wasn't going to see the film I have been waiting to see since 1977!
