Sean Patrick Flanery,
The Towani family civilian shuttlecraft crashes on the forest moon of Endor. The four Towani's are separated. Jermitt and Catarine, the mother and father are captured by the giant Gorax, and Mace and Cindel, the son and daughter, are missing when they are captured. The next day, the Ewok Deej is looking for his two sons when they find Cindel all alone in the shuttle (Mace and Cindel were looking for the transmitter to send a distress call), when Mace appears with his emergency blaster. Eventually, the four-year old Cindel is able to convince the teenage Mace that the Ewoks are nice. Then, the Ewoks and the Towani's go on an adventure to find the elder Towanis.Written by

Comparing the original VHS release (which is presumably what originally aired on television) to the 2004 DVD release (a double feature with "Ewoks: Battle for Endor"), the following changes are noted:
The on-screen title has changed from "The Ewok Adventure" to "Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure".
The beginning credits have been retyped; they look virtually the same, but a comparison shows them to be smaller in font size.
The end credits have been retyped as well. Not only are they much smaller in font size, but they run 1 1/2 minutes longer as many new credits were added (so many people were not credited in the VHS release).
I love the Ewoks but this film doesn't do them justice. Wicket is cute but is unable to communicate at this stage with the wooden humans. Cindel was chosen for cuteness, rather than acting ability. Her brother, Mace, is a very unlikeable lead. The narration, delivered by Burl Ives, is excruciating. Fortunately this is absent from the second half. Basically the children set out with a small band of Ewoks to rescue their captured parents. The journey is long and nothing interesting happens. Wicket and Cindel become firm friends. Only the Ewoks kept me watching. If you don't like Ewoks, don't bother. Luckily the second film, "Battle for Endor", is better. Don't miss that because of this misguided affair. 3/10
