"I am one with the Force, the Force is with me.  I am one with the Force, the Force is with me."

If you've seen Rogue One (and if you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for?) then you know that one of the film's stand out character's is Donnie Yen's Chirrut Imwe, the blind warrior who is a devout believer in the Force.  Chirrut won over fans with his martial arts skills and his wit, much of that coming from Yen himself.  Yen sat down with Screen Rant's Robert Keyes to talk about the character's backstory, revealing that an extensive backstory (that he can't talk about) was written for the character (including whether or not Chirrut was born blind).  He also spoke about whether or not the character is Force sensitive.  Check it out for yourself below,
