When fans go to see Star Wars: Episode VII this winter, there may be one more glowing blue presence watching over them next to Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker: Star Wars superfan Daniel Fleetwood. Daniel succumbed to spindle cell sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, just five days after being granted his dying wish to see The Force Awakens on November 5.

Disney and J.J. Abrams screened an unfinished cut for him after his family, cast members and the Internet rallied to bring attention to his cause, #ForceForDaniel. He was 32.
