Jason Momoa Dedicates AQUAMAN Sequel to a Young Fan Who Died of Cancer

By Movieguide® Staff

Actor Jason Mamoa dedicated his upcoming DC Superhero movie, AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM, to a young fan who recently died from cancer.

Eight-year-old Danny Sheehan, also known as AquaDan by those closest to him, died on Aug. 9 after a battle with rare brain cancer since 2017.

“I just found out this heartbreaking news,” Momoa wrote on Instagram. “All my Aloha to this beautiful Ohana Love u baby boy rest in (peace).”

“You will live in my heart,” he added. “I dedicate Aquaman 2 to you lil angel Aloha UNKO Aquaman.”

Danny first caught Momoa’s eye in November 2020, when a video of the boy excitedly opening an Aquaman action figure went viral. Momoa even video called Danny and talked to him, and he gifted him a life-size trident.

Danny’s mother, Natalie Sheehan, shared the news of Danny’s death on a Facebook page dedicated to Danny called 4TheLoveofDanny.

“Just after midnight, while in our arms, Danny took his last sweet small warm breaths and took flight,” she wrote. “An Angel in Heaven. Instead of here on earth. Surreal and utter heartbreak can’t even begin to describe this feeling inside.”

“Danny’s departure leaves a hole in the lives of all those whom he met. To know him was to absolutely adore him. A wise old man in a little boy’s body, Danny was an impish ball of determination, light, cuddles, stubbornness, manners, fighting spirit, humor, sweetness, and laughter,” the Sheehan family wrote in Danny’s obituary.

“He loved nothing more than snuggling with his best friend, Mummy (said in an English accent — a result of Danny’s being an avid fan of Peppa Pig), telling jokes with his beloved Daddy, making ‘set-ups’ with his toys and trains, seeing his friends from school and attending birthday parties, making voyages to the toy aisles of Target, devouring endless plates of noodles with Parmesan cheese or fries with ketchup, and telling everyone about how his rescue dogs, Ryder and Miley, wrestled too much.”
