Chirrut’s Greatest Moments

One of my favorite things about Rogue One were the characters. You had Jyn Erso, the daughter of the man who built the Death Star! Captain Cassian Andor, a rebel spy. K-2SO, a reprogrammed Imperial droid. Bodhi Rook, a defected Imperial pilot. Baze Malbus, a seasoned soldier. And finally you have Chirrut, the spiritual warrior who believed in the ways of the Force wholeheartedly.

I loved the concept of Chirrut ever since I saw him in the first teaser because there had never been a blind person in Star Wars and it’s always exciting seeing new characters with unique characteristics about themselves. But to also find out that he had the Force was beyond awesome. Even though he wasn’t a Jedi he was so cool and he really became one of my favorite characters in Star Wars. So today on this segment of Greatest Moments I’m going to share with you all of the things that made me like his character so much in Rogue One.

1. Chirrut Kicks Stormtrooper Booty

Donnie Yen in Rogue One (2016)

I remember the first time I saw this scene. Before this scene Chirrut had already been briefly inserted into the movie as he participated in a quick conversation with Jyn Erso but this scene was the true debut for him. I recall watching this part carefully watching what was going to happen as he was surrounded by stormtroopers ready to kill him. Then he went plum off on them martial arts style and defeated all of them without even getting a scratch. And may I remind you, he’s blind!!! How incredible is that? Chirrut might not have been a Jedi but his ability with the Force was off the charts. After this scene I immediately knew I was a Chirrut fan and that’s why this is undoubtedly one of his greatest moments.

So Here’s A Question: Is Finn Force-Sensitive or Not?

The Last Jedi had a lot of great character development for the characters new and old but there was one character who I felt got a little lost in the weeds and that is Finn.

One of the reasons why I didn’t like The Last Jedi after the first viewing was I felt that Rian Johnson took Finn, who was one of the most important characters in The Force Awakens, and placed him on the back burner to introduce a new heroine, Rose. After the second viewing of the movie I realized he actually had been given some development as Rian Johnson cemented his stance as a Resistance fighter rather than still remaining on the fence of his allegiances. But there’s still something about Finn’s story that has been lost in the creative process of there being two different writers between two movies and that is the topic of Finn’s Force-sensitivity.


Stormtroopers have faced death and the loss of their comrades for decades (The Clone Wars series is full of this) but its never made a stormtrooper suddenly rethink his life and want to become a good person. So why did this happen to FN-2187? What’s so different about this stormtrooper? Simple. He has the Force and it awakened within him at that moment! It’s the only logical thing that makes sense. If you watch that scene and you hear the sound effects they use at that moment when he realizes the horror of his situation it’s kind of clear the subtle implications they were pushing of him having the Force. And then the fact that Kylo Ren sensed him also sends slight signals that Finn had dregs of the Force.
