Clone Wars Season Five - Episode Six - The Gathering

If there is anything cooler than a Wookie Jedi I haven't found it in all my travels. This week we see a group of Jedi Younglings as they go on their most important mission - The Gathering - where they face the challenge of harvesting their Light Saber power crystals and facing down their greatest fears. The very best episodes of this series are often the ones that focus on the many secondary characters in the Star Wars Universe and this one is no exception. I laughed, I cried, I smiled and I cheered.

This is the kind of thing that gives me hope that there is little that even Disney can do to destroy the magic that is George Lucas' vision. The concepts and characters are so strong that they can survive even when someone other than Lucas is in charge of their destiny. Watch it with your kids or pull some hobo off the street to join you, I don't care. If I get even one person to convince another that this show is worth you time then my job is done.

Yeah, those young jedi are really cute. It's too bad that they'll all end up DEAD in a couple of years.

I had temporarily forgotten that in the warmth of my joy. SIGH.
