Thousands of people flock to social media to share a fan?s dying wish to watch Star Wars: The Force Aakens. Countless of people are tweeting with the hashtag #ForceForDaniel to get the attention of the persons in charge of the latest Star Wars movie and over the past week, over 34,000 tweets have been shared by users, according to BBC News.
On September 1, Daniel Fleetwood, a very enthusiastic Star Wars fan, was only given two months to live when surgery and countless of chemotherapy treatment failed to stop the cancer cells from moving to his lungs. And the only thing on his mind since the announcement was to watch an early screening of Star Wars: the Force Awakens which unfortunately will only be released in December, shared by BBC News.
Warwick Davis, who previously played a Ewok in the Star Wars franchise, got hold of the messages from social media and showed his support by sharing a message directly to Disney Studios, tweeting, ?Daniel Fleetwood?s dying wish it to see #TheForceAwakens. Please make his wish come true.?
And today, Disney fulfilled his wish when they gave Daniel an unedited version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and let him watch the movie from the comfort of his home. He even received a special phone call from the director, J.J. Abrams.
In a Facebook post, wife Ashley Fleetwood shared how Daniel?s wish finally came true:
?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!!!?
She also thanked everyone who helped in spreading Daniel?s wish:
?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! We also would like to thank Lynne, Ben, and Anahuac for coming to our home and screening the movie for Daniel. Lastly I want to thank ALL the amazing people who helped make this happen, thank you beyond words!!! May the force be with you all. #ForceForDaniel?
Even Luke Skywalker himself confirmed the amazing news.
I just read this and am elated for Daniel & his family! Thanks to the powers-that-be for making his dream come true. https://t.co/ImiAdyBxf8
