Shameless attempt to cash in on star wars
13 February 1999 | by BeegeeSee all my reviews

Why bother? Return of the Jedi was a great movie but the worst thing about it was the Ewoks. So why in God's name would anyone want to make a whole movie about them? The Star Wars trilogy ruled the earth and the new one looks

incredible, but a movie about ewoks is a shockingly bad idea.

The funniest parts of Return of the Jedi were parts with ewoks getting hurt (even toasted) so this is just a waste of time.
