    A British man with a terminal illness got to see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker a few weeks early, Disney CEO Robert Iger confirmed on Twitter. "On this Thanksgiving, we at Disney are grateful to be able to share The Rise of Skywalker with a patient and his family at Rowans Hospice," Iger wrote. "May the Force be with you and with us all!"

    Rowans Hospice, in Hampshire, England, cares for patients with life-limiting illnesses. The organization shared an image of a Disney representative arriving with the film.

    Few details were given about the patient, who does not wish to be identified. Rowans Hospice Chief Executive Ruth White told NBC News the whole thing started when employee Lisa Davies spotted a "Star Wars" tattoo on the man's leg.

    The hospice confirmed the screening in a tweet, writing, "Our amazing patient has now seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with his son."

    Magician Sean Boon shared a photo of the patient and others keeping their anonymity by wearing Star Wars costumes. "I'm the tall handsome Stormtrooper in the pic," Boon wrote.
