FX Artists Build a Millennium Falcon Fort for Make-A-Wish Foundation

This is a pretty awesome story. A team of FX artists from Little Mountain Productions built this incredibly cool Millennium Falcon for 9-year old Christian as part of a Make-A;Wish Foundation wish-granting. The Falcon will top off a play fort in the kids back yard. The Millennium Falcon they built even has a solar powered LED interior and exterior lighting. 

What a great group of people to donate their time and money to do this for Christian. It's good to know that there are still good selfless people out there in the world trying to make the world a better place. Christian is obviously a huge Star Wars fan and it looks like he's gonna have a blast with this thing!

"When he was first diagnosed, he carried his X-Box back and forth from the hospital," his grandmother Tracy Clark said.

"At home, that Star Wars game pretty much kept him going."

Battling an ear infection, Christian appeared overwhelmed by the whole ordeal, at times rubbing his eyes and shaking his head in front of a crowd that included Star Wars characters including Storm Troopers and an Imperial Guard.

After the unveiling, Christian's grandfather Ed Clark had a wish of his own.

"I'm waiting for everybody to leave so I can go play in it, too," he said. "They just did a wonderful job." 

Yes they did! Christian spent the rest of his day shooting down Tie Fighters.
