BOISE -- A little boy had a very special afternoon on Saturday when the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted a wish for Brody.

Friends and family packed the Egyptian Theater in Downtown Boise for the event where the inventor of Furby created a pet dragon, like one from the movie, How to Train Your Dragon, for eight year old Brody.

Dreamworks Animation, the folks behind How to Train Your Dragon, heard about Brody's wish and decided to participate. They screened their new movie, How to Train Your Dragon Two. The movie is not yet out in theaters, and was only seen at the Cannes Film Festival before the screening in Boise.

Brody has been battling brain cancer for two years.
