Trivia

Because Wilford Brimley did not get along with directors Jim Wheat and Ken Wheat, his scenes were directed by production designer Joe Johnston. See more »

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 »

The Battle For Endor!
7 May 2002 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is one of the great movies of the 80s in MY collection that I think about all the time.

Back in the early 80s there were two good movies about the the Ewoks from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Both film have the spirit of the Star Wars film in MY opinion and especialy ROTJ. Both films are sad in a way but they are never boring and both have good special effects and the whole nine. Both film has some great music aswell!

Seeing Wilford Brimley in this film is a treat. The begging is quite sad but this feature is never boring and like the other its action packed. Fans of Brimley and Star Wars should see this!
