Another big jolt of "Star Wars" mania came on Wednesday, November 4, when Lucasfilm and Disney released character posters for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," including this close-up of Harrison Ford as Han Solo.

STAR WARS’

Force awakened: The Force was with Daniel Fleetwood yesterday. The terminally ill cancer patientsaw an unedited version of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” yesterday. Fleetwood, 32, has a rare connective tissue cancer, and doctors weren’t sure he’d live long enough to see the film when it premieres next month. An online campaign, #ForceForDaniel, launched to persuade Disney execs to let him see the movie early. They did.

PLANE CRASH

Very different views: The United States and Great Britain have a strong suspicion. Egypt and Russia don’t share it. The first two say a bomb probably brought down Metrojet Flight 9268 — maybe one from ISIS. President Obama expressed the suspicion yesterday with talking about thecrash probe. The bomb theory is based on intercepted “chatter” from terror groups right after the crash. But Egyptian and Russian authorities say, so far, there’s no evidence for the idea, and its far too early in the investigation to make such a claim. Meanwhile, thousands of British tourists — stuck in Egypt since the crash — will begin flying home today.

CHICAGO VIOLENCE

Shooting shocker: “Abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable.” Those were the words Chicago’s police superintendent used yesterday in describing the shooting death of a 9-year-old boy. Police think the boy was the intended target and lured into an alley where he was killed. Who targets a elementary school boy for death? Gang members, police said. They believe the child’s father has ties to a gang. No arrests have been made, and authorities are pleading for people to come forward with information.
