Details on Donnie Yen’s Star Wars Character

Entertainment Weekly has posted some details on the new Star Wars characters but let’s face it, the most interesting is Chirrut Imwe played by Donnie Yen.

They say that it’s pronounced chi-RUT, he’s no Jedi; but he’s devoted to their ways and has used his spirituality to overcome his blindness and become a formidable warrior. “Chirrut falls into the category of being a warrior monk,” says Kennedy.

“He very much still believes in everything the Jedi were about.” He maintains that belief even though the Jedi are no longer there to protect the galaxy.

 

As director Gareth Edwards puts it: “This idea that magical beings are going to come and save us is going away, and it’s up to normal, everyday people to take a stand to stop evil from dominating the world.”
