Episode 71

Is Disney Screwing Up Star Wars by Moving Away from Social Issues?

This week there have been a number of reports of Disney moving away from its "woke" agenda whilst also digging deeper into the Star Wars history books for its next big-screen outings.

But, as a corporation, can ignoring social and racial issues be tolerated and should Disney face things head-on and make movies that aren't scared to stand up?

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.

For exclusive content, laptop stickers, merchandise, guest opportunities and even producer credit on the show, head to our Patreon page at www.Patreon.com/SparkOfRebellion and tell all of your Star Wars loving friends that the show is available to listen to, completely free anywhere that you can find podcasts.

And for more Spark of Rebellion, head to Instagram.com/SparkOfRebellionShow for behind the scenes of the show and to interact with us every single day.

Now, go explore and may the Force be with you... always!
