Chirrut Îmwe was arguably the most popular character in the latest Star Wars film, Rogue One. This could be largely due to the incredibly talented and veteran actor, Donnie Yen. That said, there has to be more to it. Perhaps the “blind Jedi” is a very appealing concept.
The “blind master” theme is not new in film and stories. This has been a common theme from Chinese martial arts films, television and even comics. There is something compelling about a hero who overcomes a disability and defeats an evil foe. Is it because it shows the inner strength that we can all achieve? To look inside ourselves and and move forward? Whooa! Got a little serious there!
