Starwars.com has announced the return of Star Wars This is Madness Tournament.
The voting is set to begin on March 12th, but there are already comments on Twitter about the brackets, the characters and the match ups. Especially, around the lack of female characters.

To help get some clarification, I asked if the Story Group had any involvement and if there were anyone there representing the female point of view.
As a female Star Wars fan I understand the disappointment of which characters appeared on the Tournament under which categories.

Maybe the ‘Play-Ins’ that will be revealed on March 12 will include some of the awesome female characters like Sabine, Asajj and Ahsoka.
