In “Rogue One,” even the droids will be diverse

They’ve made a big deal out of how inclusive and how much more diverse the cast is in the George Lucas “Star Wars” universe.

All well and good. No, the stories aren’t aching with originality, but this time around, there are role models for all. Women, men, a wide sampling of human races cast as alien races in films that more reflect our times.

Including, apparently, the droids. Meet C2-B5. A “droid of color.” Expect this matte-finish marvel in “Rogue One,” just in time for Christmas (shopping). droid
