Magic Wheelchair surprises young Star Wars fans at SDCC 2018

These 7 kids didn’t have to travel to a galaxy far, far away to get the surprise of a lifetime. They just had to go to last weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con.

These Star Wars fans were presented with incredible wheelchair costumes from Magic Wheelchair, an organization that’s built the special costumes at no cost and gifted them to kids at Comic-Con for the past few years.

This year’s entries even included — for the first time — a 3D printed costume from Massivit 3D, which created an “X-Wing” spaceship of “Star Wars” fame for a 13-year-old named Vedant who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

After each child received their gift, they were celebrated in a parade showing off their spectacular new ensembles.

Magic Wheelchair is a non-profit organization who builds costumes for disabled children and their wheelchairs at no cost to the families. At a convention full of people dressed as heroes, the people behind Magic Wheelchair is an example of real-life heroes. Check out these kids custom costumes below:
