‘The Rise of Skywalker screened early for dying Star Wars fan’:-

^ fair play to Lucasfilm / Disney for doing that.
 

Fair play. But they could have kept it behind closed doors instead of making it more PR.

A bit of ‘between of a rock and hard place’ for them on this mate…

The request for the dying Star Wars fan to see the film was a public one (an open tweet) - apparently word quickly got to Bob Iger (or his people) who seemingly acted promptly so the dying fan could see it.

I imagine Disney / Lucasfilm / people connected to the films would still be fielding requests - or likely coming in for some criticism - if they had not acknowledged these requests / given an update?
