Joe Rogan Podcast Ignites Star Wars Fan Outrage Over Disney Direction

The Joe Rogan Experience, a popular podcast, has once again had a significant impact on the cultural conversation. This time, the focus is on the backlash from fans of Disney’s Star Wars franchise.

Since Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012, Star Wars enthusiasts were optimistic about the future of the beloved franchise. However, with the release of projects like “The Last Jedi” and “The Book of Boba Fett,” that optimism has waned.

Critics argue that Disney’s handling of the franchise has led to more failures than successes, leaving diehard fans disappointed and frustrated.

During a recent episode of the podcast, MMA fighter Matt Serra expressed his frustration with the direction of the Disney Star Wars brand, particularly in relation to the Disney Plus series “Ahsoka.” Serra criticized the portrayal of “strong” female characters in the series, arguing that it did not align with the essence of the original Star Wars.

The series “Ahsoka,” which features the character Ahsoka Tano, a female Jedi warrior, has received attention for its treatment of male protagonist Ezra Bridger from the animated series “Rebels.” Serra highlighted instances where female characters outdid Ezra, including the transfer of his lightsaber to a female character.

Host Joe Rogan also shared his perspective, stating that what is being presented in the new Star Wars content doesn’t align with the original essence of the franchise, which is centered on iconic characters like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

Despite concerns about the potential appeal of the “Ahsoka” series to a broader audience, Disney Plus moved forward with the project. While the series initially garnered viewer interest, the finale saw a decline in viewership.

Despite the mixed reception, Disney has announced a second season of the series.

The discussion on The Joe Rogan Experience has shed light on the divide between fans of the original Star Wars franchise and the direction Disney has taken with its new content.
