A terminally ill cancer patient is pleading with moviemakers to let him see the new Star Wars “The Force Awakens”, before he dies.
Daniel Fleetwood, who has been a “Star Wars” superfan since his youth, is dying and his final wish is to see the new Star Wars movie, but there’s a chance he won’t live to see until the premiere.
Twelve years ago, he was the subject of an article in his hometown newspaper for camping out for tickets. The 32-year-old Texas man’s greatest hope is now also his dying wish: to see the latest installment of the movie before he passes away. “Judging by how progressive the disease has gotten in the past two months, I really don’t think I’ll be able to make it,” he said. “The Force Awakens” is schedule for nationwide release on Dec. 18.
Daniel should’ve already passed away, but he believes he’s hanging on to see the movie. A campaign has even started to get him a private screening of the movie, using #ForceforDaniel.
