He even met one special fan, Daniel Bell, who is battling a brain tumor. Daniel had a wish to meet Boyega's character Finn and hand out toys. 

That's exactly what they did.

Daniel's mother went to Facebook to thank Boyega for granting her son's wish.

"It was just amazing, I have no words! Daniel is still totally overwhelmed, I have never seen him so happy," Rosalind Bell wrote in response to Rays of Sunshine Children's Charity's post about the visit.

Hope Daniel has the best time having his greatest #wish granted today - to meet John Boyega (Finn) from@starwars #StarWars
