ENGLAND- A dying Star Wars fan received one of his final wishes. 

The patient wanted to watch the newest Star Wars movie "Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker" that will be released in mid-December of this year. 

Rowans Hospice, where the patient was being treated, tweeted on Tuesday a plea on the patent's behalf saying "Time is not on his side."

The tweet was met with strong support and was wished "Good luck" by the actor of Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill. 

On Thursday, the chairman and CEO of Disney responded, "On this Thanksgiving, we at Disney are grateful to be able to share #RiseoftheSkywalker with a patient and his family at Rowan Hospice. May the Force be with you and with us all!"

The patient later released a thank you statement to Disney, saying he felt like he won the lottery.
