Someone Broke Mace Windu's Lightsaber...

This week, Mark is flying solo and brings you three news items with a little bit of Star Wars banter and a lot of fun!

At 0:00 Mark welcomes you to the show and talks about what to expect from today's episode before a quick tease about what we're talking about next week at 01:29 (hint: Bad Batch!).

You can become a supporter of the show and grab some amazing Spark of Rebellion swag at 02:17 and we kick the news this week off at 04:22.

Our first story is from CinemaBlend that reports Empire Strikes Back to be number one at the US box office, again (05:01).

Next up, Ross King takes a chunk out of Mace Windu's lightsaber live on air in Los Angeles - check out his hilarious face at 10:28 (and Lorraine Kelly's shade at him!).

Rounding out the news this week at 20:28, Doug Chiang released a brand new but unused double-decker star destroyer concept for The Rise of Skywalker.


This is Spark of Rebellion, the weekly Star Wars podcast for casual fans and veterans alike.

We are your hosts, Garry and Mark and every single Saturday we release a brand new episode bringing you Star Wars news, reviews & discussion, our famous "top threes" and of course, the random spotlight, where we highlight a character, place, ship, object or something else peculiar from a galaxy far, far away.
