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

In the US DVD release, the 20th Century Fox logo and fanfare along with the title card, "A Lucasfilm Limited Production" are added to the beginning of the film. The US MGM/UA original VHS release does not include these items. See more »
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
