I enjoyed this, I don't agree with the so called "lameness" of it. I think it's just hate towards the prequels, which I loved. Before I give info on what families need to know, (SPOILER ALERT) first a quick recap: Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are fighting in battle on Christophis when a Shuttle arrives. The shuttle carries Ahsoka Tano, Skywalker's new padawan. At first they bicker but after they successfully win the Battle of Christophis, they begin to get along. Then they discover that Jabba the Hutt's son was kidnapped. The story turns to saving the young Hutt. When they find the hut on Teth, a new villain is introduced, Asajj Ventress. After an epic lightsaber battle, Anakin and Ahsoka escape with the Hutlett and make for Tatooine. However, they are being thwarted by Count Dooku, who convinces Jabba that the Jedi were the kidnappers. On Coruscant, Padme decides to investigate the kidnap. Obi-Wan then arrives on Teth to push back Seperatist forces. He duels with Ventress. Anakin is shot down to Tatooine by droids. When the crash landing happens. Anakin and Ahsoka split up. Anakin then meets Dooku in the desert. There is a third duel. Padme discovers that Ziro the Hutt was behind the kidnapping and Jabba demanded Ziro to be arrested.
