Star Wars fans are known for have a passionate opinion i Shang-Chi star Simu Liu it is no different. In the latest episode of Hot Ones, a new Marvel hero was asked about a photo from his Instagram in which he trained red Sith Trooper helmet, which leads to the question of who his favorite Jedi is. The answer is probably controversial, but certainly well reasoned.
“It must be Qui-Gon Jinn, ”Liu he said on the show. “This whole idea of the Jedi during the Old Republic, look at those council scenes where everyone is so stuck. They all just say, ‘These are the rules, we never break the rules’ and by the way, [that’s] very hypocritical too, because the Jedi should not want power. They say, “We have no thirst for power,” and there is literally a council that oversees everything in the highest part of Coruscant. ”
The truth is … wait. Is there more? OK, of course, come on, King.
“I like that Qui-Gon is a bit maverick,” Liu continued. “He doesn’t care. He says, ‘Sorry, I’m going to train this kid.’ And in the end, that kid will grow up and become Darth Vader and bring down the whole Republic, but still, you have to admire the guy who can see through the hypocrisy of the Jedi Order. They think they’re good guys – they’re like, ‘Oh, yeah, we’re so good,’ but they’ve really been instruments of their own death, in a way. ”
In fact, Liu’s nerd was so complete that he ended up saying, “I’m sorry, I’m already … Star Wars tangent and I’ll show you my true colors. ”
He did it and the moment is so pure and wonderful. There is something magical about seeing someone you could drive crazy if you yourself have ever met him to fuss about something, especially if it is something you are passionate about. And Liu is without a doubt passionate Star Wars. The clip, which is all shown, can be viewed below.
Liu’s film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, is now on Disney +.
