Friends Surprised Donnie Yen with a Star Wars-themed Birthday Party
The “universe’s strongest” actor Donnie Yen (甄子丹) definitely lived up to his nickname this July when his friends surprised the 53-year-old action star with a Star Wars-themed birthday party. Donnie has just completed the additional photography for his upcoming film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and is preparing to promote the film once it opens worldwide this December.
Earlier, close friends including Miriam Yeung (楊千嬅), Real Ting (丁子高), Chow Kwok-fung (周國豐), Lee Shing-chak (李丞責), and more, surprised Donnie with a Star Wars-themed birthday party. They gave him a custom-made purple lightsaber as a gift, and decorated his birthday cake with adorable custom-made Star Wars designs that had his character, Chirrut Îmwe, at the center.
Rogue One is the first stand-alone Star Wars Anthology film produced by Disney. It is set before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope, and is about the Rebel Alliance recruiting a team to steal the plans of the Death Star. It also stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, and Jiang Wen (姜文).
The film will be released on December 16, 2016.
