Goofs

It is wrongly assumed the when Noah and Cindel arrive at the castle Noah dips his staff into the moat to show that it is made of some type of acid and the walking staff head is melted away. However, when they are running from the castle Noah's staff is once again complete and the head is perfectly in place. Firstly its not his staff Noa shoves in the water it's a branch with leaves clearly visible on it, secondly it's not acid that melts it, there is a creature in the moat that attacks it. The same creature tries to get Wicket minutes later when he is dangling with his feet in the moat. See more »

Quotes

Terak: [Charal has brought Cindel before Terak. He reaches out to stroke her face] Oh, what a cute little girl!
Cindel: What have you done with the Ewoks?
Terak: The Ewoks?
Cindel: My friends!
Terak: Oh, they are here as my... guests! My most honored guests!
Cindel: You better not have hurt them!
Terak: Oh, I won't hurt them. Not
[he motions for one of his soldiers to bring him the power cell taken from Cindel's family's star cruiser, which he sets down in front of her]
Terak: if you make *this* work.
Cindel: How?

This makes me a sad panda
2 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Don't bother to look any connection to Star Wars. Movie was lot closer to basic fantasy with few laser guns. Ewoks aren't that brave jungle-tribe they were. Just bunch of glass-eyed fat idiots fooling around. Stuffed replacement for Three Stooges x 10

Effects can't be called special. Harryhausens creatures from early movies are at least on the same level with two-legged lizards in this. Bad guys wear very stiff and lifeless rubber masks

Most disgusting thing in this movie was still main character. I've never hated child actress this much. She looks more like coming from make-up for children's beauty contest then middle of forest. Main point seems to be make her look as cute and clean as possible, and take care she reads all her lines in most annoying childish tone.

After these things pissing me off so much, I don't have any reason to comment about plot or other fails of the movie.
