Disney's agreed to give a terminally ill Star Wars fan the chance to see the latest film before it's officially released.

Staff at a hospice in Hampshire have asked for a special screening as they say time is not on the man's side.

The Rise Of Skywalker isn't out in the UK until December 19th.

The hospital's campaign has proven to be a success.

Following more than 1,200 retweets and 1,800 likes, Rowans Hospice caught the attention of Disney officials:

The patient, who's not been identified, has now been told he'll get to see the movie.

His wish is to watch it with his young son and family.
