“Star Wars: Rogue One” actor Donnie Yen may not just incur the wrath of the Empire, but also Lucasfilm.
The Hong Kong action star shared a photo of three Stormtrooper helmets on his Facebook and Instagram pages, along with the message, “I am the force and I fear nothing… Going to put this in my company’s display room.” While the helmet in the middle is familiar to any “Star Wars” fan, the other two are new to the franchise.
The photo has since been deleted from both pages.
The black helmet would appear to be that of an Imperial fighter pilot, considering they’ve worn some version of that since 1977’s “Star Wars.” Entertainment Weekly notes that while there’s no franchise precedent for the beige helmet, it does bear some resemblance to those worn by Scout Troopers in “Return of the Jedi.” Perhaps this version is for desert terrain.
Directed by Gareth Edwards, “Star Wars: Rogue One” is set before the events of the original “Star Wars.” Yen is joined in the cast by Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Riz Ahmed. It opens Dec. 16, 2016.
