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.

By far the best Ewoks movie
26 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie over and over as a child. Back then in the 80s we didn't have cable or VCR, we had what you call a BETA tape. You'd be lucky if it worked and luckily our Ewoks tape worked a lot during its course.

Anyway the movie starts off giving us a hint of what happened to our protagonist's parents. It gives us also a mere glimpse of the beast as well. It then flash forwards us into what happened to the 2 kids, Cindel and Mace. Cindel is a very cute and friendly kid, whereas her older brother Mace is protective and seemingly narrow-minded.

Throughout the movie you'll probably develop a distaste for Mace, and deep fondness for Cindel and the Ewoks.

A great family movie, they re-mastered this on DVD and I got it as soon as I could. Brings back great memories, without the rewinder.
