(CNN) — A terminally ill “Star Wars” fan, who saw the new film early, has died.

Daniel Fleetwood was 32 years old. Just last week he attended a special screening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

He saw the film after his wife and supporters asked Disney to help fulfill his dying wish.

Even Luke Skywalker himself, actor Mark Hamill, joined the #ForceForDaniel cause.

Early Tuesday morning, Daniel’s wife Ashley post this message on her Facebook page:

“Daniel put up an amazing fight to the very end. He is now one with God and The Force.”
