5-year-old Christian Bentley, who has leukemia, loves Star Wars. So the Make-A-Wish Foundation decided to build him a huge playhouse designed to look like the Millennium Falcon from that franchise. The Foundation contracted Little Mountain Productions, a custom builder of church facilities, to do the job.
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.
Union Public Schools' Moore Elementary School raised the roughly $5,100 it took to grant Christian's wish.
Little Mountain Productions of Tulsa, which designs and creates sets, stages, special effects and props, built the playset, a replica of the Millennium Falcon spaceship featured in the "Star Wars" movies.
The base of the clubhouse was erected by volunteers from Simmons Homes.
"This is definitely one of the most creative wishes we've ever done," said Jane Rohweder, director of development for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oklahoma. "The wish he had took so many people, so many volunteers to make it happen. It's really been a community effort."
