Neil Hanvey, the terminally ill cancer patient who inspired the hashtag #rogueonewish to get to see the movie before it's release, died Monday in hospice care in England, his family announced.



Hanvey's wife Andrea set up a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for St. Michael's. And shared the following statement:

"On behalf of all our family we would like to thank everyone who has passed on their condolences following Neil's death last night... We would also like to thank the tens of thousands of people who supported the #RogueOneWish campaign. All the messages of love during the past week have given us a great deal of comfort during a very difficult time. We would also like to thank everyone at St. Michael's Hospice, especially Amy Duncan, without whom #RogueOneWish would not have happened. All donations at Neil's funeral will go to the Hospice's Family Support team and will be used to fund work with children and young people."



Rest in peace, Neil Hanvey.

Good Guy Mark Hamill harnessed his inner Jedi to offer up some Yoda-style wisdom to a female fan asking if it's chill to dress as Luke Skywalker.

Hamill, who has one of the most interactive celebrity accounts on Twitter, has been known to let his Joker personality show every now and then.

Tuesday, Hamill decided to choose the Jedi path and deliver advice worthy of the Jedi council.

Happiest update #2 for the happiest Wookie in the world. The "Happy Chewbacca" lady got to laugh it up with James Corden and J.J. Abrams on The Late Show. At this rate, maybe she'll get a cameo in Episode 8?

You may remember the lady who transformed into the happiest Wookie you've ever seen with a roaring Chewbacca mask. Well, here's the happiest update ever: Kohl's (where she original bought her mask) brought her two more masks and a whole box of Star Wars stuff. Now her kids have their own Star Wars toys. She also got $2,500 in gift cards so that she can buy non-Star Wars stuff.
