This Irish guy's reaction to a new Star Wars trailer was unexpectedly moving

He never lets a Dagobah without thinking about Star Wars.

He’s from Meath, and he’s been hooked on Star Wars since he was four years old. In fact, he’s such a fan that RTÉ Radio One made a documentary about him.

He took ‘Luke’ as his confirmation name. He has a huge collection of memorabilia, and can recite scenes from the film verbatim.

So, when the new extended trailer for the The Force Awakens, the forthcoming new instalment of Star Wars, he was up at 3am to watch it.


His reaction is surprisingly moving.

We really really really hope it’s good. For Matthew’s sake if for nothing else.

This terminally ill fan was shown the new Star Wars movie early thanks to a wonderful campaign
