Mark Hamill Supports Terminally Ill English 'Star Wars' Fan

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill is among those lending his support to a terminally ill fan who wants to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story before he dies.

He backed a social media campaign launched last week by hospice worker Amy Duncan asking for the Star Wars spin-off to be screened for illustrator Neil Hanvey, from Oldham.

Amy says the 36-year-old cancer patient was informed by doctors in April that he has six to eight months to live. Rogue One is set for release on December 16.

The film stars Felicity Jones and is set between the third and fourth Star Wars instalments.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was screened for terminally ill fan Daniel Fleetwood on November 5. He died days after seeing the movie.
