Make-a-Wish Helps Child Defeat Evil in His Own Sci-Fi Film

Illustration for article titled Make-a-Wish Helps Child Defeat Evil in His Own Sci-Fi Film

Clark Doyle, a seven-year-old with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, made his very own science fiction epic with the help of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The above photo of awesomeness is Clark at the red carpet premiere of his film Zero Hour. Between this and the Iron Man child, our hearts may just implode in on themselves.


According to Make-a-Wish, Clark loves writing stories and especially loves things like Godzilla. So for his wish, Clark wanted to see a story of his made into a real film. One of the creatures in the film below is the Hand Tongue Frog, a puppet made by Jim Henson's Creature Shop for Clarke to keep.

Said Clark's mother:

When Clark was first diagnosed it was devastating and it is difficult knowing that his condition will get progressively worse.

However, the wish couldn't have been better for Clark – it was right up his street and he had the most amazing experience. The wish has really inspired him to stay involved in acting and continue creating stories.

It's has really boosted Clark's confidence. He often feels that his peers are ahead of him, but the wish was something he was really good at and he feels like he achieved something special – it's fantastic.

Voiceover by Warwick Davis?! How was that not in the article?

But yeah, not bad. Better than some full-budget things I've seen, at least. Always good to see a kid in a bad situation get to do something like this.
