The Bedford and New Boston fire departments are making it possible for Ron Villemaire to watch the new film.

A dying man's wish to see the new Star Wars movie is coming true, thanks to local fire departments and medics.

Ron Villemaire has stage 4 colon cancer and is in hospice care in Bedford, New Hampshire. He's a huge Star Wars fan, but can't get to a theater and sit in a seat.

After a public plea from his daughter, the Bedford and New Boston fire departments say they'll take him Saturday by ambulance to a theater and transfer him to a hospital bed. Medics will be on hand during Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The 69-year-old Villemaire will be joined by family and friends, as well as Darth Vader and storm troopers.

Villemaire is a U.S. Air Force veteran and will be greeted by representatives thanking him for his service.
