Hello and welcome to the 26th edition of the main podcast where we take a look at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and then have a brief discussion on Christmas films. The regular cast welcome some special guests to the show: Bex Coulter, Josh Ashton and Wendy Selleck.
First up, Rogue One. What do you do if you are Disney? You spend $4billion on Lucasfilm and you want to start to recoup the money you have spent. Luckily, this investment includes arguably the preeminent science fiction franchise ever, so you expand the story, backfill some bits, and you have Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Directed by Gareth Edwards, the film stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna and Donnie Yen amongst others.
Our next podcast special will be a review of 2016 and a look forward to 2017.

Hello and welcome to our latest actor special, this time taking a look at the work of Amy Adams.
Born 20th August 1974 in Italy to an American service family, Amy has 55 acting credits to her name. These productions, in turn, have provided her with much critical acclaim and she has, so far, amassed 136 Award Nominations, winning 43, including:
• Five Academy Award Nominations (4 Best Supporting Actress and 1 Best Actress)
• Five BAFTA Award Nominations (3 Best Actress in a Supporting Role and 2 Best Actress in a Leading Role)
• Six Golden Globe Awards (3 Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture and 3 Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy - with two wins in the latter category for American Hustle in 2014 and Big Eyes in 2015)
With two films out in recent weeks, namely Nocturnal Animals and Arrival, that have garnered much critical praise, more award nominations and wins can only be around the corner.
Our next main podcast will take a look at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story along with a general discussion of festive movies.
