#WhereisRey? has been gaining traction ever since the female protagonist was excluded from an action figure set. The toy-manufacturer is trying to rectify that.

On yesterday's program we talked about the uproar over the toys released in conjunction with Star Wars - The Force Awakens.

The hashtag #WhereisRey? has been gaining a lot of traction ever since the female protagonist was excluded from an action figure set sold at Target.

The toy maker is trying to make things right now... they'll be rolling out a new line of products featuring Rey this month. 

Our next guest, Entertainment Weekly's senior film writer Anthony Breznican got a sneak peek and he joins me now.
