“We wanted to spread hope and positivity to everyone,” Morse told CNN. “Brantley seems to love wearing the costume. He smiles all day.”

Morse said her son, who is developmentally delayed mentally and physically because he was born premature, hasn’t seen the movie, so her mission this weekend is to get it for him.

She said Brantley was in the neonatal intensive care unit for nine months and deals with several chronic medical conditions.

“He has had 10 surgeries so far,” she said. “And although he struggles, he always is able to put a smile on his face and others.”
