    The terminally ill fan was given the chance to watch an early screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens shortly before he passed away, The Wrap reports.

    The likes of Mark Hamill and John Boyega backed an online campaign to support Daniel's final wish, with Hamill later tweeting to say he was "elated" after the screening took place.

    Daniel's wife Ashley previously wrote an emotional Facebook post earlier this month, breaking the news by saying: "To all our wonderful supporters, friends, family and awesome strangers: Daniel's 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 was suffering from a rare form of cancer called spindle cell sarcoma, and was told he had two months to live in July

    May the force be with him as he passes on to the great worm eating pasture.


    Wonder if the worms will also contract his cancer, thus passing it on to the fish they are used to catch, and then the pescatarian that consumes it. :dontknow:

    How the hell are you supposed to say no to someone who's dying of cancer, by the way.
