The past week has been one of the best ever for the Disney corporation. The media giant closed a deal to buy up all of Fox’s assets, with the price tag exceeding $50 billion. Now, the Mouse will control an even larger share of the media, and be able to churn out even more comic book movies than they already have.
On top of that, the second installment of the newest Star Wars trilogy hit theaters and is raking in an enormous amount of money. Star Wars fans across the globe have been anxiously awaiting this day, and after 2 long years, it’s finally arrived. However, for one life-long fan, there’s just no way he can make it to the theater to see the film. Battling stage 4 colon cancer, his daughter made a public appeal to somehow allow for her father to see the latest film before he passes.
As reported at the Daily Caller, United States Air Force veteran Ron Villemaire, who’s on his death-bed, will be able to see the film on Saturday thanks to the combined efforts of the Bedford and New Boston fire departments in New Jersey.
The fire departments will transport Villemaire to a nearby theater, where they’ll wheel him in and have some medics stay by his side the entirety of the film. On his way to the theater, he’ll be met with a group of folks that will thank him for his years of service, and then he’ll get to enjoy “The Last Jedi” against all odds.
The only question left is whether or not he’ll actually like it, as the movie’s receiving a lot of mixed responses from movie-goers, whereas the media has done nothing but showered the film with praise and called out anyone who disagrees. But all that noise likely doesn’t matter to Villemaire, who’s just happy that he’s been given the opportunity he yearned for.
