Goofs

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 »

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]

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, NO!
21 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

What the hell is this!? That was my first reaction to this film (actually, my first reaction contained more swearing). This isn't Star Wars! Star Wars is space battles, this movie has none. Star Wars is the Force, this movie only has a retarded witch with a magic ring. Star Wars is lightsaber battles, this movie hasn't got any battle worth mentioning. Star Wars is humor, this movie isn't. Star Wars is a galaxy far, far away, this movie has HORSES in it!!! Besides all of this, how did Lucas get the insane idea to let a five year old baby do the leading role !? Big, big disappointment. Do you like Star Wars? Don't watch this! 1 out of 10
