During the month of October, the act of picking out a child’s Halloween costume consumes many parents lives. Along with the ghouls, ghosts and goblins, some kids emulate the people who influence their lives. Of course, when your father is Donnie Yen, you just raid his closet and you’re guaranteed be the coolest kid on the block during Trick or Treat. Hence, Yen’s son dressed as his his dad’s character in the Star Wars universe, Chirrut Îmwe.
Yen and his wife posted photos on their Instagram accounts of their children dressed in costumes from a galaxy far, far away. Yen’s daughter dons a First Order Stormtrooper gear while his son wears the robes and holds a staff, the preferred weapon, of the spiritual Chirrut Îmwe.
