#R2BC Friday’s #GoodNews
Yeeeeeeah have to say I’m probably buying into the hype on Rogue One
With a cast boasting Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Alan Tudyk my interest is certainly piqued. Also the casting of Felicity Jones in the lead, as Jyn Erso, makes me smile as we see the Star Wars universe continuing to throw up strong female characters from Leia, Padme, Mara Jade, and Mon Mothma through to the new recruits including Asoka Tano, Hera Syndulla, Sabine Wren and of course Rey. Although seeing another Brit in a Star Wars lead does make me grin from ear to ear.
In more breaking through barrier the news has thrown up political prisoners to be freed in Myanmar, rehabilitation for former members of Boko Haram and hope for British steel workers.
