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.

Shameful and poorly executed audience manipulation
12 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A very disappointing experience After the effort that had been made to create the very accomplished and hugely successful feature films, continual interest in the franchise led to the decision to undertake this project. While that in itself was absolutely fine, and the story, while aimed at a younger audience was also acceptable, it is the execution of the story that is so disappointing.

While it is to be expected that a television movie cannot have the level of investment in it that is commanded by a large scale feature film, I found it unacceptable that little effort was undertaken to make this film look credible. The Ewoks are themselves in my view, a cynical creation to make money by selling toys and merchandise rather than tell a story, but setting that apart, surely more resource could have been put up to reflect that the planet is teeming with Ewoks (as per return of the Jedi)and that the central Ewok character Wicket (played effectively by Warwick Davis)was part of a much larger tribe than is demonstrated in this film. Some of the matte painting work is satisfactory, and while ILM did win an Emmy Award for its visual effects for this movie (led my Michael Pangrazio, a matte artist and ILM veteran Denis Muren)I felt that some of the visual work was actually well below ILMs standards. It feels like this film was made to get the biggest possible audience with the minimum possible production budget.

The other failure was in the performance of Eric Walker. The good work carried out by child actor Aubree Miller (she didn't star in anything significant after these Ewok TV films) was totally undermined by the Walker's overacting, playing her elder brother. A restrained performance would have had a much greater impact on the story.

Very young children may well enjoy it, but it should have been so much better
