Neil Hanvey's dying wish came true.

On Saturday, the terminally ill Star Wars fan got an advance screening of the film franchise's upcoming release, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Over the weekend, the ailing man was actually able to watch the movie with his his wife and family members, from his bed at England's St. Michael's Hospice.

Tragically, Neil passed away on Monday at 36 years old, after losing his battle with cancer.

But, before his death, hospice staff had organized a social media campaign to get Mr. Hanvey that advanced viewing. Last week, Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the famed franchise, saw the campaign, and took to Twitter to support the effort, retweeting this post (below):

And, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards also heard about the man's wish, and sent over a special preview version of the film, months before its scheduled December release.

After the Saturday screening, the hospice issued a statement about the heartwarming gesture, and revealed the filmmaker did "all he could" to grant Neil's request:

The Lorde giveth, and the Lorde taketh away.

Unfortunately, it seems as though the 19-year-old is hearing too many people complain about an eventual follow-up album… because she just took all of her frustrations out on one Instagram fan!

This is definitely NOT music to our ears!

ABC shocked fans at the end of the 2015-2016 season when it announced that it was cancelling Nashville after four years on the air.

Luckily, the Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton musical drama was given a second life thanks to CMT and Hulu… but things aren't as harmonious with the cast as we originally believed.

Lead actors Will Chase and Aubrey Peeples already quit the show in preparation for the big move, but now we're hearing that Rayna herself may only appear in about half of the upcoming fifth season!

Apparently, Connie has only signed on for ten episodes of the 22-episode order, although production is reportedly hoping they can convince her to stay on full-time.

But it's not all bad news — CMT also announced on Wednesday that you can expect Nashville to premiere on Thursday, January 5, 2017, at 9 p.m. EST, which means only 4.5 months to go before we get to indulge in more country craziness!

Would U watch a season of Nashville without Connie Britton??
