The Rise of Finn?!... plus Mark Hamill looks, erm, "nice" in this new figurine and what about that Y-Wing?!

Read Show Notes

With The Rise of Skywalker only a few months out, now, rumours are rife and once more we dissect yet another Jedi-based theory, this time positing Finn's place in the Force. Plus, we look at the wonderfully old school Y-Wing and an endearing little moment between two stormtroopers and a very young padawan!

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.

The TIE Dagger Makes it's Debut... plus Force flash fights and Dooku's curved end!

Read Show Notes

This episode is a doozy of news from The Rise of Skywalker including Force flash fights, the new TIE Dagger and the guy in pink shorts from A New Hope. Yep!

Plus, we take a look at Dooku's unique lightsaber and discuss whether or not those rumoured Force flash fights will be great or just a tad gimmicky.

Ren, Kylo Ren... Is Ben Solo Undercover?!.... plus something really cool from Del Rey!

Read Show Notes

With The Rise of Skywalker only months away, speculation is rife and one theory posits that Kylo Ren, aka Ben Solo, has been undercover with knowledge of the Emperor's return for years.

It's an interesting theory and certainly something to get your teeth into, so what do we make of it here at Spark of Rebellion HQ?

Plus, a purple-hued random spotlight and something really cool from Del Rey, the team behind the Star Wars canon books.
