Orlando Weekly has a video interview with Ashley in which she talks Her Universe, The Clone Wars and more.
This is not the post I set out to write when I asked the other day
which . After all, Nanci already quite eloquently laid out why we need Star Wars ladies should be headlining novels more women in the Expanded Universe. But on Friday, EUC posted a rebuttal to her post, titled Let’s Stop Thinking About Gender and it seems there’s still more work to do on the ground level. I know, I was shocked, too. Though I probably shouldn’t be.
forgotten that Star Wars is aimed at boys! And that by asking for something as minor as a female characters whose functions include something other than being Big Bad Lady Cthulu or Confused Teenage Girlfriend makes us the sexist ones! For shame, ladies. For shame. Because we’ve never heard anything like this before.

Her Universe gave fans a sneak peek at
the upcoming ‘Queen’ shirt on Facebook today. Get ready to look for it “really soon.”
I’ve never been much of a Padme fan. But there’s no denying that she’s an important part of the prequel trilogy, and Anika (aka
@magnetgirl) makes some convincing points as to why — including her death — in The Queen’s Sacrifice.
Get out your Hollywood fashion tape, Anakin and Padme fans:
‘Senate Spy’ is now streaming on StarWars.com.
Holiday Special week fallout: Han Solo’s little-known furry roots glommed on by internets, many bad jokes (and debate?!?) ensue.
Better a Wookiee than a
Selonian, I guess. (We’ll leave them to Corran.)
Looks like Anakin and Padme fans will be happy with tomorrow’s episode, ‘Destroy
Malevolence:’ Catherine Taber, who voices Padme, has a few comments on the character and the secret relationship.
Meanwhile, over at TFN, the
ForceCast has a roundtable on the first three episodes.
