Star Wars For Kids!

First of all, last week's Star Wars cartoon was actually pretty good. The battle at the beginning had good special effects and action.

The show got me thinking: there are children today for whom the cartoon is the core Star Wars experience. To them, Ahsoka Tano is the main character of the series. I imagine this will disturb some people.

Personally, I like Ahsoka. I know it's personal correctness, but it's nice to see a positive female character, even if she is essentially dominated by a male figure. Her presence doubles the number of female characters who don't suck in the Star Wars series.
