Storyline

The Towani family civilian shuttlecraft crashes on the forest moon of Endor. The four Towani's are separated. Jermitt and Catarine, the mother and father are captured by the giant Gorax, and Mace and Cindel, the son and daughter, are missing when they are captured. The next day, the Ewok Deej is looking for his two sons when they find Cindel all alone in the shuttle (Mace and Cindel were looking for the transmitter to send a distress call), when Mace appears with his emergency blaster. Eventually, the four-year old Cindel is able to convince the teenage Mace that the Ewoks are nice. Then, the Ewoks and the Towani's go on an adventure to find the elder Towanis. Written by Grand Admiral Murphy

Only for Star Wars fans...
3 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Keep in mind this was a MADE FOR TV film, originally aired in 1984, and obviously intended for kids! The first of two EWOK ADVENTURES, known as "CARAVAN OF COURAGE," does not hold a candle to the original STAR WARS trilogy in terms of story-telling, effects, or production design, but it is an interesting little footnote for anybody who wants to explore the SW universe a little further. I have vague, fond memories of seeing this when it originally aired, and I was excited to relive it again, 20 years later. The first and third act are kind of exciting and cool, but the middle drags, and if you didn't like them in ROTJ, you're certainly going to find the Ewoks awfully annoying here. Some of us can look past the contrivances and cheesiness- after all, it's STAR WARS!
