Trivia

As with the previous film, The Ewok Adventure (1984), this movie is a spin-off from the original Star Wars trilogy, but fans remain undecided as to whether these two films should be considered part of the official Star Wars canon. Since the acquisition of Disney from Lucas films, this has now become part of 'Legends', and therefore not canon. See more »

Goofs

When Teek and Noah are eating the bread at the table, they switch back and forth between Noah's face and Teek's, but if you look at the tray of bread you will notice, that there is bread when the camera is facing Noah, but no bread when it is facing Teek. See more »

Quotes

Cindel: [singing] My Star keeps me company and leads me through the night/My Star watches over me and fills my dreams with light/Some things change but some things shine forever as they are/In the sky, shining high, My Star.

  • When being chased by Terak's men, Wicket races for Noa's house but Noa tells him the only chance they've got is the star cruiser.
  • A scene taking place shortly after, where the men go inside and burn down Noa's house.
  • Cindel's lines: "Do something, Wicket! Use your sling! You hit the ring!" have been altered to "Do something, Wicket! Do something!"

Why??
14 August 1999 | by Matthew-57See all my reviews

In the year 1983, George Lucas cashed in a large sum of money after retrieving the funds of the biggest, sadly most popular star wars movie. Return of the Jedi. This movie had a comic relief clan, like Jar Jar Binks in episode one. Lucas decided, for some stupid reason that why Jedi's success was so large, was this pitiful band of fuzzy, cute, and annoying Ewoks. Big Mistake!

In 1985 Lucas wanted another large sum of money, hmmm, he thought, why not exploit our fans even more? That is why I hate the Ewoks: Battle of Endor made-for-tv movie. Enough said, don't you think?
