Well, it’s about time. Star Wars has always had strong female characters, but on this week’s episode of Clone Wars the action actually revolves around the chicks. Not that I don’t love the male characters, but it’s time for the girls to get some action!
According to a LucasFilm Press Release, “In "Cloak of Darkness," Ahsoka and Jedi Master Luminara escort captured Viceroy Nute Gunray to trial – but they're unaware that Count Dooku has dispatched his deadly assassin Asajj Ventress to free the prisoner and eliminate the Jedi."
The interesting part of the storyline is that we all know Ahsoka uses her feminine whiles to get her way with both Anakin and Obi-Wan. She doesn’t always get away with it, but it works a lot of the time. With Jedi Master Luminara, she finds a real challenge in a Master who won’t give in, and goes by the book ALL the time. Quite different from the way Anakin and Obi-Wan operate, eh?
Oh, and the female action isn’t just on the Jedi side either – that assassin, she’s a chick too – and she wants to be a Sith Lord like you wouldn’t believe!
The video below does not include much of the storyline, but it does show some wicked sweet new droid ships that they’ve come up with. Ah, the magic of animation!
