It is wrongly assumed when Noah and Cindel arrive at the castle, Noah dips his staff into the moat to show that it is made of some type of acid and the walking staff head is melted away. However, when they are running from the castle, Noah's staff is once again complete and the head is perfectly in place.
Firstly, it's not his staff Noa shoves in the water; it's a branch with leaves clearly visible on it. Secondly, it's not acid that melts it; there is a creature in the moat that attacks it. The same creature tries to get Wicket minutes later when he is dangling with his feet in the moat. See more »

Some TV airings have the following scene cut when Cindel has a nightmare about bad guys coming into Noa's house after her: Cindel rushes to Noa's bed to wake him up, but instead finds Terak in the bed, then she wakes up. In the cut version it just shows her waking up after the men break in. See more »
The Battle for Endor makes a number of improvements that luckily make it over-all a better film than the previous "Caravan of Courage". The film's mood is decisively darker and more serious, its cinematography is cleaner and for this it almost manages to capture the flavour of "The Return of the Jedi" and other bigger Star Wars films.
Moreover, the film does away with the dreadful narrator of the first film by allowing Wicket to speak and simultaneously giving him more character. In all, the characters of BFE are far more colourful and interesting than those of the previous film. Additionally the aliens, the Marauders, add a nice sinister element which makes the film all the more dramatic.
The only points of criticism for the film are undoubtedly its kid-friendly story and the character of Noa who delivers a number of unconvincing lines throughout the picture.
None the less, The Battle for Endor is just exciting enough so that it wont traumatize the kids and will make the film fun for the adults as well.
