LOS ANGELES (AP) — “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.

Hamill 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, England.

Duncan 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 Dec. 16.

The film stars Felicity Jones and is set between the third and fourth “Star Wars” installments.

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