I Am One With the Force Shirts. I am I Am One With the Force, the Force is with Me! If you’ve just seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, then I shouldn’t have to explain to you how this statement fits into the film, nor why it has become THE TRENDING QUOTE of recent days.
Over the relatively few days since I saw Rogue One, this quote – ‘I am one with the Force, and the Force is with me’ can be heard throughout my office, whispered in hushed tones before jumping into long conference calls, before giving long presentations during meetings, and in my case, before merging into heavy traffic in the throes of an icy and treacherous winter commute! I even heard a doctor say that he may even speak these powerful words before heading into difficult surgeries. It has quickly become one of the more memorable quotes of the Star Wars franchise and on a larger level, one of the more memorable quotes of the latter half of 2016.
‘I am one with the Force, the Force is with me’ in the film was spoken by none other than Chinese actor and Martial Artist Donnie Yen, who stars as Chirrut Imwe, a key player in the Rebel’s mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. Stricken with blindness, he is a highly capable hand-to-hand fighter able to take on cadres of Stormtroopers with just a wooden staff and his ‘unspecified’ understanding of the Force. There is in fact, one notable scene in the film (depicted below) which really capitalizes on this particular quote and gives it the significance is so truly deserved.
So in rememberance of Donnie Yen’s spectacular performance and a Star Wars quote that will be forever immortalized in the years to come, I give you I Am One With the Force Shirts from Redbubble’s creative Star Wars collection!
