Storyline

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.

What a cheap way to cash in on an already celebrated franchise.
30 May 2008 | by johnnymacbestSee all my reviews

I can tell you a thing or two about the dirty aspects of commercialism. For one thing, greed and marketing plays a prominent part in the merchandising phase and two, for all "their good intentions" it dampens the appeal of the original product despite the fact that said material has already been established. Ahhh, the power of corporate politics. In this case, Lucas tried to do the same thing with the prequels (though Episode 3 was great, don't hate me) and failed horribly and Ewok Adventure is another example albeit from a much less commercialized era. About the film itself? well I could say its cute in a "Star Wars geek" kinda way but then I'll be lying to myself if I do. As the title of this review states, this is nothing more than a cheap cash in on an already established universe. The fact that two, count 'em TWO movies were made featuring those despised little walking "rugs" is cringe-worthy of morbid epic proportions. To me they kinda resemble those Teletubbies of late; only with fur. Why? Why try to milk something that was so successful to begin with for what its worth? Why didn't he scrap this crap and just make a Star Wars TV series, live-action style?!?!?! Instead he made this sci-fi excrement. Purely and fundamentally useless. It serves nothing more than a nuisance to anything worthy of mass appeal and critical praise. This was made for kids aka THE TARGET AUDIENCE of the world. At least its nice to know that adults don't have to even look at....this...thing dipped ever so eloquently in sweet dippedy-doo-daa candy laced fudge even if that was Mr. Lucas and co original intent. Are they're good parts? The special effects are nice. That's just about it.

You could do a lot worse and I MEAN A LOT WORSE seeing this vomit-inducing piece on Lucas's now-corporate-minded part or if you want a more "humane" solution you could check yourself into a mental health facility where you're most likely stay for several years if you can't erase those horribly disturbing haunting images from your ever so delicate psyche. The sky is falling in this Orwellian age of psychotic pop stars, weak US dollar, Tom Cruise's fax paux religion, and other bizarre things happening in the world today, one can only hope that a resistance movement is formed to combat and defeat the evil forces of commercialism to ensure the rest of humanity that crap like this NEVER is made to be seen AGAIN. Ever.
