Never mind the spoilers that never stop coming, Star Wars: Rogue One is almost here.
Yen, the 51-year-old Hong Kong superstar who have been in big international hits like the Ip Man series, is a legend in Hong Kong for his dozens of groundbreaking mixed martial arts action movies.
In Star Wars: Rogue One, Yen plays warrior monk Chirrut Îmwe, the first Star Wars character with a circumflex in his name.
Hong Kong’s very own Donnie Yen plays the role of not just the first “warrior monk” in a series that has known only Jedi, but also a Star Wars character without lightsabers, dropping stormtroopers with nothing but a stick.
We’ll have more to discuss on that score once the movie opens. For now, we’ll just have to wait!
