Succumbing ‘Star Wars’ fan considers movie early


( CNN) A dream has come true for a “Star Wars” fan without much day left to live.

Daniel Fleetwood, a 32 -year-old “Star Wars” aficionado who is terminally ill with cancer, got the chance to see an unedited version of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” on Thursday, a Disney spokesperson confirmed to CNN Money’s Frank Pallotta.

All involved were happy to make it happen, the spokesman said.

It was the result of an online campaign, #ForceForDaniel, which received support from “Star Wars” performers Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew and newcomer John Boyega in recent days.

Fleetwood has spindle cell sarcoma, a rare form of connective tissue cancer, and was say in July he had two months to live, according to CNN affiliate KPRC.
