This is what Disney magic is all about!

A young girl from Fresno had a heartwarming moment with a certain Star Wars character recently.

The 9-year-old girl, Kathryn, has been diagnosed with both cerebral palsy and visual impairment. Her life hasn’t been easy, but she’s a fighter and so this trip to Disneyland was something she’s been looking forward too.

Kathryn and her family were on their trip to Disneyland and decided they were going to visit the newly opened Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. While on their way to explore the galaxy far, far away, Kathryn had an encounter with a special someone.

Chewbacca surprised Kathryn and her family as they entered the theme park last month! The Fresno family told Action News that the Star Wars character had stopped them as soon as they walked through the gates and into the park to make sure he could say hello to Kathryn.
