Donnie Yen Talks 'Rogue One'

By: Dominic Jones

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens being released in theaters last week, we can now get the countdown to next year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story going.  One of the stars of the new film Donnie Yen spoke with The Hollywood Reporter recently about being in a Star Wars film.

Yen couldn't say much, but he did tell THR,
"I am very proud to be the first Chinese actor cast in Rogue One. It was a good and benevolent character." 

As for the success of The Force Awakens, Yen said with a laugh,
"When Star Wars succeeds at the box office, I succeed, because I'm now part of the family. Other than that, I feel like there should be options for the audience. I will definitely go see Star Wars, but I'm even more determined to go see Ip Man 3".

Yen is currently promoting his film Ip Man 3, which hits theaters on January 22nd, 2016.   Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theatres on December 16th, 2016.
