In a headline by the Sun, it is written that Tory MPs have turned to Star Wars fan Rishi Sunak as a ‘new hope’ for the Conservative Party. Indeed, while this is a reference to Sunak’s financial expertise and the hopes that he might deliver Britain from the current economic crisis that it has been embroiled in, it is also a reference to one of Sunak’s lifelong passions: Star Wars. That’s right, the current Prime Minister of the UK is a self-confessed, huge Star Wars nerd. Growing up as a young boy and born to a modest family, Sunak had a relatively normal childhood – in which his love of Star Wars first took root. Now, as an adult, that passion for the franchise has seemingly not wavered as he reaffirms his love for the series on radio shows and news interviews.
