It’s no wonder that artists or creatives who work on great movies or entertainment series, be they superheroes or science fiction, are Star Wars fans. It happened to the director of Rogue one, that flat made a major cameo in the movie he directed, and now it’s actor Simu Liu (the star of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) who in an interview talked about who his favorite Jedi is and why.

He did it in the show Hot Ones of the popular channel YouTube Firt We Feast, in which when interviewed by Sean Evans, he said he has a fascination for Qui-Gon Jinn.

«I love Qui-Gon because he’s a bit of a renegade, he doesn’t mind breaking the rules, it was a ‘sorry, but I’m going to train this boy’, and in the end, that boy ended up being Darth Vader, the guy who destroyed the Republic, but still, I find it admirable that Qui Gon was able to see the hypocrisy of the Jedi Order. They thought they were the good guys, but they were also arrogant, so to some extent they were responsible for their extinction, “he said.

Hmm, where have we heard a similar argument? Yes, sure, it happened in the infamous The last jedi, just as Luke starts Rey’s training. «Now that they are extinct, the Jedi have been romanticized, deified, but if you put aside the myth and look at the facts, the legacy of the Jedi is failure, hypocrisy, arrogance … At the peak of their power they allowed the Rise of Darth Sidious and the creation of the Empire that destroyed them, infused was a Jedi master who was responsible for the training and creation of Darth Vader ».

Many say that Luke was wrong on that statement. We believe that it could not be more successful. And about Simu Liu’s sayings, he definitely has a point.
