As it has been OVER A YEAR (I know I am a terrible person) since my last post, I feel that Disney Pol needs to come back with a bang.
And you know that bang is Star Wars.
Starting February I will post a new piece every week which will aim to examine the representation of women within this franchise. Now that Disney has taken over Lucas Film, this is an important chance for them to improve the way they feature women in the franchise. Undoubtedly many film critics have praised Daisy Ridley’s performance as Rey in the most recent addition – and so they should – however I would first like to firstly, take a look at the original triology, secondly, examine the prequel trilogy and finally analysing the Force Awakens and what is (hopefully) to come.
Now that life seems to have settled down a little I will aim to focus more time on improving my writing skills. I am currently a part time postgraduate student focusing on the politics of the Walt Disney Company’s merchandising – as well working in the week! However – it is important to have a creative outlet that will hopefully improve my writing as well.
May the force be with you.
