SPRINGDALE, AR (KAIT) -The force was strong with children at one Northwest Arkansas hospital Monday.

Characters from the iconic movie Star Wars visited the Arkansas Children’s Northwest Hospital in Springdale.

Multiple characters were on display, including R2D2, storm-troopers, and members of the imperial forces.

The group said their biggest reason for visiting was to surprise the children and help brighten their day.

“It’s something that we’ve been enjoying doing we love to spread the good works of Star Wars,” Charles Brown, Commanding Officer of the Diamond Garrison 501 Legion, told television station KHBS. “We’ve done a lot of charity work in the past and it’s always a great opportunity to come out and see the kids really smile and enjoy it.”
