A man suffering from a terminal form of cancer had his dying wish to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens granted. Daniel Fleetwood is a 31-year-old Star Wars fan from Texas who has "an aggressive form of cancer that's spread to 90% of his lungs."

He was told he only had a month or two to live, so his family started a social media campaign called #ForceForDaniel, petitioning to Disney to let him see the film before it comes out.

After gaining some traction from online supporters, his wife Ashley announced yesterday that Daniel's wish was granted:

It made a bunch of Star Wars fans happy, including Mark Hamill:

Congrats to Daniel. He has an epic fan story that is literally something out of a movie.
