Lucasfillm/Disney(NEW YORK) — A 36-year-old terminally ill British Star Wars fan who started a successful Internet push to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story early, has died.

The hashtag #RogueOneWish — retweeted by fans including Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill — led Lucasfilm’s and ABC News’ parent company, Disney, to grant Neil Hanvey’s final wish.  Hanvey’s wife Andrea shared on Facebook that her husband saw the film Saturday, and died Monday.

Andrea Hanvey’s now started a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the hospice where Hanvey died.

One year ago, 32-year-old terminally ill cancer patient Daniel Fleetwood of Texas successfully lobbied to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens early.  Disney arranged a screening in his home November 4, ahead of the scheduled December 18, 2015 world premiere.  Fleetwood died November 10, 2015.

NOAA via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Hurricane Gaston is expected to weaken later Thursday and revert from a hurricane back to a tropical storm, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

Gaston is located about 1,225 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is moving northwest at about 17 miles per hour. That hurricane’s path is expected to continue through Friday, although it is forecast to weaken during the next day or so.

Gaston’s maximum sustained winds as of Thursday are close to 75 miles per hour.

There are no coastal warnings in effect from Gaston, according to the National Hurricane center.

Also in the Atlantic, all eyes are on a tropical wave that is expected to head in the general direction of Florida by this weekend. The tropical wave is near the Lesser Antilles and has an 80 percent chance of forming into a tropical cyclone. If it does become a tropical storm it will be named Hermine.

Some models show the tropical system closing in on South Florida by this weekend, and possibly even in the Gulf of Mexico by early next week, but the forecast remains uncertain.

Strong winds and heavy rain are expected to occur in the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and the Bahamas over the next few days as it moves in a west-northwest direction.

Meanwhile, a depression in the Pacific has strengthened to become tropical storm Lester, about 185 miles south-southwest of Socorro Island and about 475 miles south-southwest from the southern tip of Baja California, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Lester’s maximum sustained winds are 40 miles per hour and it is currently moving in a west-northwest direction at about 12 miles per hour.

There are currently no coastal watches in effect from tropical storm Lester.

Lester could become a hurricane in the next couple of days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Mueller Family(NEW YORK) — The MP4 video clip was only 10 seconds. Long enough for her family to recognize the young American woman in a black head scarf and green hijab but not long enough to identify where she was or who held her hostage in Syria in 2013.

“My name is Kayla Mueller,” she began in a clear voice, her eyebrows arched upwards, in apparent stress, above her glassy eyes. “I need your help.”

Kayla was a hostage of a terrorist group the world would come to know as the worst in history — but she didn’t say any of that.

At 10 seconds and 22 megabytes, her proof-of-life video was small enough for the hostage-takers to send by email from Syria. Kayla had been missing from the war-torn city of Aleppo for almost a month by the time this video made by ISIS was received by a friend of the 25-year-old humanitarian aid worker who gave it to the FBI, where agents sent it to her parents in Prescott, Arizona, on Aug. 30, 2013.

The video, provided by the Mueller family to ABC News for Friday’s 20/20 broadcast of “The Girl Left Behind,” is the only known image of Kayla in ISIS captivity and has never been shown publicly before now.

“You just go into almost a catatonic state, I think. You can’t even stand up,” Carl Mueller told ABC News in a recent interview, describing his reaction three years ago to first seeing his daughter in the ISIS video.

Few at the time had ever heard of ISIS — a group originally known to the U.S. as “al Qaeda-Iraq” — or knew that it was violently breaking off its alliance in Syria with a franchise of core-al Qaeda in Pakistan, which Osama bin Laden founded. ISIS needed cash and Kayla became one of the first westerners they kidnapped in Syria’s war-torn streets for millions in ransom.

“I’ve been here too long and I’ve been very sick. It’s — it’s very terrifying here,” she said into the camera lens before the image, which showed only her covered head and shoulders, abruptly stopped.

Kayla had clearly lost weight since she was abducted by a group of gunmen on Aug. 4, 2013, from a Doctors Without Borders car not far from a hospital in Aleppo, Syria, run by the group’s branch in Spain.

“I saw how thin she looked but I saw that her eyes were very clear and steady,” her mother, Marsha, said. “It broke my heart but I also saw her strength.”

The proof-of-life video was intended to serve a few basic purposes, according to Chris Voss, retired FBI chief hostage negotiator, who examined the Kayla tape.

“You look at this video and right away you can see a number of things. Basically from a pure physical health standpoint, she’s not in bad shape physically. They’re letting us see that. They want us to see that overall she’s not in bad shape,” Voss told ABC News. “They probably put makeup on her before they shot the video. They produce these the same way any media company produces videos.”

The reason for showing her in good health was that, to ISIS, Kayla Mueller was a commodity.

“This is an opening offer. This is, ‘We want to talk,'” Voss explained.

“They probably rehearsed that a number of times. I would imagine they shot that anywhere from no less than five times, maybe as many as 15 times. They rehearsed her. They got the lighting right. They controlled what’s in the background. They controlled everything they said. Everything she said. They want to put enough out there without raising the threat level. They want to put enough out there to start a negotiation. And that’s what this is intended to do,” he said.

But the friend that ISIS sent the video to was not in a position to negotiate for Kayla.

The Muellers instead put their faith in the non-governmental aid organizations Kayla worked for — the Danish Refugee Council, Support to Life and the NGO Forum, a collective of many aid groups — who told them the U.S. government had stepped in to take care of things and would get Kayla home.

Her family trusted all “like sheep,” Carl Mueller now says.

Support to Life was helpful to the Muellers but it was a small organization with limited resources or knowledge of how to handle a hostage case, the family says.

Their faith in aid groups and the government meant that the Muellers did not begin negotiations with the hostage-takers for 10 months, when Doctors Without Borders turned over an ISIS email address two months after they had received it from their own workers freed from captivity.

Negotiations began with the hostage-takers on May 23, 2014. Most American families of ISIS hostages received few emails from the hostage-takers but the Muellers received nine.

Soon after, on May 29, proof-of-life came with Kayla’s voice — but not her face — in an audio clip.

“Mom and Dad, I still am remaining healthy. You should have already received the three answers to the proof of life questions you provided. Those detaining me are demanding an exchange of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s release for my release. If this is not achievable, they are demanding 5 million euros to ensure my release,” Kayla said.

And then, abruptly, what would be her last spoken word to her mom and dad: “Goodbye.”

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is rock-solid at the box office, enough to make him Hollywood’s highest-paid actor.

The star of the forthcoming Fast 8 earned an estimated $64.8 million in the last 12 months, according to Forbes, more than double what he made last year.  Matt Damon, who placed third with $55 million, saw a 120% increase over last year’s earnings, thanks in large part to his starring role in the box office hit The Martian.

Jackie Chan came in second, with $61 million.  Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp round out the top five.

Robert Downey, Jr. topped last year’s list of top earners for the third consecutive year, with $80 million.  This year, he drops to eighth with less than half those earnings.

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence earlier this week topped the Forbes list of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses, with $46 million.

Earnings are estimated based on paydays, endorsement deals and the like.  Here are the top ten highest-earning actors, according to Forbes:

1) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, $64.5 million
2) Jackie Chan, $61m
3) Matt Damon, $55m
4) Tom Cruise, $53
5) Johnny Depp, $48
6) Ben Affleck, $43m
7) Vin Diesel, $35m
8) Shan Rukh Khan, Bollywood star, $33m (tie)
8) Robert Downey, Jr., $33m (tie)
10) Akshay Kumar, Bollywood star, $31.5m (tie)
10) Brad Pitt, $31.5m (tie)

Courtesy CuseMSOC(SYRACUSE, N.Y.) — The Syracuse men’s soccer team has pulled off an epic locker room stunt as one player tried to “head” the ball to his teammates without hitting the ground.

Senior defenseman Liam Callahan bounced the ball to all 25 of his teammate’s noggins, one at a time, without the ball ever hitting the ground. Finally, he headed the ball into a trash can.

Callahan told ABC News’ Good Morning America that he and his teammates attempted the trick 20 times. The final try was ultimately successful and captured on film.

On Friday, the defending ACC champs kick off their season against rival University of Massachusetts.

MARCO ZEPPETELLA/AFP/Getty Images(PESCARA DEL TRONTO, Italy) — It took 17 hours and several firefighters to rescue her, but 10-year-old Giulia was pulled from the rubble alive Thursday after an earthquake struck central Italy Wednesday.

As rescue workers raced to find survivors beneath the crumbled buildings in the town of Pescara del Tronto, about 100 miles northeast of Rome, they spotted Giulia’s legs and carefully removed wreckage around the trapped girl to get her out Thursday morning.

Her last name has not been released and the extent of her injuries, if any, is unknown.

Giulia’s dramatic rescue was captured on footage. The girl emerged caked with dirt and dust, and people clapped and cheered as a firefighter carried her away from the flattened building in one of the towns hit hardest by the powerful quake.

The 6.2-magnitude earthquake that rocked central Italy early Wednesday killed at least 247 people, injured hundreds more and left thousands homeless, according to Italy’s Civil Protection agency.

Several aftershocks have occurred since the initial quake struck, around 3:30 a.m. local time, and tremors were felt as far away as Rome, more than 100 miles from the earthquake’s epicenter.
