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. Written by Grand Admiral Murphy

Star Wars Magic before the dark times...Before CG
2 June 2002 | by naylor-3See all my reviews

Both Ewoks films have the Star Wars magic which is missing from Episode I and II, AND PROBABLY III. The creatures, places, and ships look real, the lasers are great, the music is wonderful and the story is both exciting and fun. It's a shame the new Star Wars films couldn't even come close to the old stuff. It would be great to get the Ewok films on DVD (But then I guess George Lucas would want to go back and computer animate the ewoks or put Jar Jar or Jabba-The Hut in it and reveal that the ewoks are all clones)See this film for good old Star Wars goodness!
