Did You Know?


The character of Noa foreshadowed a science fiction film that would be written by screenwriters Ken and Jim Wheat about a man stranded on a desert planet, when he is shipwrecked. That film became 2000's "Pitch Black". See more »


When Teek and Noah are eating the bread at the table, they switch back and forth between Noah's face and Teek's, but if you look at the tray of bread you will notice, that there is bread when the camera is facing Noah, but no bread when it is facing Teek. See more »


Terak: [the mauraders have captured Jeremitt outside of his crashed star cruiser and are holding him prisoner. The leader, King Terak, approaches Jeremitt, roughly brings him to his feet and slams him against the side of the star cruiser] You have the power? You will give it to me, now!
Jeremitt: I don't have any power! My family and I, we're stangers here!

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.
