As promised, a teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped yesterday and it was absolutely gorgeous. I’ve watched it about a dozen times now, discussed with friends, and watched a handful of youtube videos dissecting the trailer.
When reading/watching most reviews of Rogue One, Donnie Yen’s Chirrut Imwe is always referenced as the standout character. Be it how he elegantly uses his staff to disarm enemy troops or the fact that he does so as a blind man, Chirrut is an extremely unique character.But what made him a standout to me was not his fighting skills, but his connection with the spiritual. Chirrut wields no lightsaber, nor can he use mind tricks yet he is as strong with the force as any Jedi Knight.
