Trivia

If the film is considered canon, it's possible and most likely that it took place after Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). When Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and the Rebel Alliance encountered the Ewoks, Wicket does not speak English. In this film, Wicket speaks English after being taught by Cindel. If the film took place before 'Return of the Jedi', Wicket would be speaking English when he encountered Princess Leia. 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 »

Visuals add more sparks to this Ewok follow-up.
15 May 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This steady-going follow-up is simply both more and less. Even though the stop-motion effects look out of date, the visual quality is an improvement over the previous Ewok adventure. You won't be seeing too many strings attached anymore, and the costume appearances are much cleaner. What it lacks for the continuous thrills and excitement of the last one greatly gains in the characters including "Cindel", "Noa", and the stellar cast of Ewoks. Both movie adventures aren't too shabby when it comes to George Lucas' imaginable sensations, but does this mean they're an absolute must-have for every STAR WARS collector? Hmmm....
