Terminal Cancer Patient's Dying Wish Is To See Star Wars: The Force Awakens


Remember when JJ Abrams allowed a terminal cancer patient to see an early cut of Star Trek Into Darkness, becuase it became clear the super-fan might not survive until the film's theatrical release?

Well, history may repeat itself if one fan has his way.

Click2Houston reports that a Texas man dying of cancer hopes to convince Disney and Abrams to give him a chance to see it early, in case he doesn't survive until the film's December release.

"Judging by how progressive the disease has gotten in the past two months," Daniel Fleetwood told his local TV station. "I really don't think that I'll be able to make it."


"It's a commitment and he still has that commitment, that drive, and that love and I think that it's a beautiful thing," said Fleetwood's wife, Ashley. "Even if it's just a movie. That's magic for a lot of people."

Fleetwood acknowledges that it's a long shot and that if he did get a screening, it would likely have to be overseen by Disney...but he's not worried about that. He's hoping that if his plea goes viral, it could help him catch the film.
