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

Towards the end of the movie, Mace throws an ax into the back of Gorax's head, and it sticks inside. Then the next two shots showing that part of the Gorax's head shows no ax sticking out of the Gorax's head. See more »

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).
Another kids' adventure film on the other side of the galaxy.
These furry little bears known as "Ewoks" had been related to the STAR WARS legend, but this made-for-TV concoction (and the one following this) has nothing to do with the legendary movies. It is, of course, an expansion of the STAR WARS universe that reaches into the realms of mystical adventures, while still holding on to the familiar science fiction theme that George Lucas once created.
THE EWOK ADVENTURE isn't going to win any awards for its basic storyline, plot, and acting routines, and it may remind some of us about the silly live-action Filmation programs that once dominated Saturday mornings in the 70s. The leftover sets from JEDI and its costumes are a real help along with Burl Ives' narration. Don't expect BIG results here; it's VERY predictable! While its fun for virtually all ages, leave this to the kids.
