Star Wars: The Force Awakens–Terminally Ill Fan Watches Film

Terminally ill fan has seen an early cut of “The Force Awakens” after his wish to do so went viral.

Daniel Fleetwood, who suffers from spindle cell sarcoma, feared he wouldn’t live to see the film in theaters. The 32-year-old Texas resident says he’s been a big “Star Wars” fan since he was young.

Fleetwood’s wife announced on Facebook that he had been shown an unedited version of “Force Awakens” at home on Thursday.

“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!” she wrote. “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!”
