Terminally-Ill Star Wars Fan Sees Star Wars Early

Walt Disney and Bad Robot have made a terminally-ill Star Wars fan’s dream come true – by allowing him to see The Force Awakens five weeks early.

32-year-old Daniel Fleetwood was told in July that he had a rare form of cancer called spindle cell sarcoma and was given just two months to live. This led to him contacting Disney and asking if it would be possible to see the film ahead of it’s release, given his diagnosis.

His campaign went viral, receiving support from the movie’s stars Mark Hamill and John Boyega, and now Fleetwood’s wife Ashley has revealed on Facebook that director JJ Abrams has come through;

“To all our wonderful supporters, friends, family and awesome strangers: Daniels final dream was just granted!!!

“Today the wonderful Disney and Lucasfilms made his final dream come true, in the amazing typical Disney way, they really do make dreams come true! Daniel just finished watching an unedited version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!! We would like to thank the awesomely talented JJ Abrams for calling us yesterday to tell us Daniel was getting his wish granted!”

“I want to thank ALL the amazing people who helped make this happen, thank you beyond words!!! May the force be with you all.”

Upon the announcement, Hamill tweeted his happiness;

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in the UK on December 17, and 24 hours later in the US.
