A Disturbance in the Force

With all the excitement over Revenge of the Sith being released next week (!), The Australian
is something of a party pooper. But they make a good point; even though
the new Star Wars film is,  according to its creator,
inappropriate for kids, that isn't stopping Lucasfilm from marketing
its products to kids.  From action figures to cereal to underwear,
the marketing blitz is on, and it's unfair to tell kids “you can play
with the toys, but you can't see the movie.”  It's somewhat
depressing to see the enthusiasm over most anticipated prequel of the
three diminished by petty, irresponsible money-grubbing.
