A Spin-Off From The George Lucas Star Wars Francise
16 January 2008 | by (London, England, UK) – See all my reviews

Right after the success of the Star Wars trilogy- Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of The Jedi, amid the 80s cartoon phenomenon, two back to back cartoon spin-offs of Star Wars was released and shown on TV on the back of this franchise- the first being Droids starring the duo of android C3PO, and R2 D2 and this, Ewoks, after their initial appearance in Return of The Jedi.

Whereas in the film, the Ewoks are portrayed as being cute and cuddly, they also couldn't speak in actual English dialogue and so for us audiences it was impossible to translate and make out what they were saying, apart from the characters in Return of the Jedi. Here in the cartoon series, they can talk properly and whilst some may argue that this is just too cutesy to be taken seriously as a cartoon, Ewoks was an interesting-yet likable and inventive show.

The furry creatures all have a range of different personality and character traits, not to mention that appearance-wise, each one was different from the other Ewok.

What this show has successfully done is manage to turn the Ewoks- of whom were non-communicative via dialogue terms- into a bunch of talkative and expressive, peace-loving species with human feelings and emotions. The stories were diverse and cute, not to mention entertaining as well. The show also had two theme songs- the first was just horrid, whilst the second was simple-yet a massive improvement over the first.

In all, Ewoks is a great little cartoon series that the whole family can enjoy. It might not be to every Star Wars fan's tastes- depending on how much you love or loathe them especially in Return of the Jedi, but for those who wish to see a completely different, and may I add superior side and treatment to the Ewoks, then you might want to give this a try.

Personally, I liked it and preferred this more to Droids, even though that was a good effort as well
