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.

Trivia

Bill George designed the Towani star cruiser and repurposed a pair of snowspeeder wings from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). See more »

Goofs

Mace's effort to rescue his parents from the cage are pointless since the gaps are already big enough for them to fit through and the rope is in the cage to begin with. See more »

Quotes

Mace: Listen, as soon as I get my gun, we're history, we're outta this place.
Cindel: Why can't we stay here with them?
Mace: Stay here with these walking hairbrushes? Come on Cindel, they're animals.

Alternate Versions

The original MGM/UA VHS release version include the opening credits that say, "Teleplay by" while the US DVD release replaces the word "Teleplay" with "Screenplay" (which shows that the overseas theatrical version was used for the DVD version while the made for TV version was used for the original VHS release).

Gunda? Feech!
26 February 2015 | by aremenySee all my reviews

A Star Wars spin-off for children. Well, Star Wars is for children as well. All right I know, Star Wars is very much enjoyable for adults. This movie isn't.

Everything is about the Ewoks here, those fuzzy little furballs from The Return of the Jedi. They are as cute as ever, even though the way their faces aren't moving is a bit creepy. On the positive side these Ewoks are the same ones we saw in The Return of the Jedi. They talk the same way they did there, by operating with such words as 'gunda' (good) or 'feech' (what seems to be an Ewokian cuss-word).

Of course there are also humans in the movie, 2 children, who are lost and are looking for their parents in the vast forests of the moon of Endor. The storyline covers the journey of a little girl and her brother to the hideout of a giant, who apparently holds their parents hostage, with the local Ewoks helping the children throughout their quest. No more, no less.

As I said, this movie is definitely for children. For adults it might be tedious to watch because of the lack of dialogues (everything is told by a narrator, for obvious reasons), and the overall silliness of the movie. And I mean tedious even to adults who are otherwise Star Wars fans/addicts. But for children it can be enjoyable. It's important to note that George Lucas wrote the story, so it's actually the creation of the father of the Star Wars universe and it's got a bit darker, grimmer sequel named The Battle for Endor.
