In 1984, George Lucas decided to expand his Star Wars universe onto the small screen. He wrote the story for this 'spin-off' of Return of the Jedi, and John Korty directed. To narrate the story, they used Sam the Snowman himself, the late Burl Ives. The story focused on the popular furry creatures from Return of the Jedi, the Ewoks. Wicket, everyone's favorite Ewok, was the lead character, along with two humans who are stranded on Endor and looking for their parents. The Ewok Adventure doesn't live up to the Star Wars trilogy, but it's still a lot of fun to watch. Have fun looking through the sections, each loaded with many pictures and other multimedia.





Ewok Plagiarism: Something on that page seems familiar. Screengrabs and text lifted. Thanks, Matt, for never correcting it or giving an acknowledgement...

Updates:

2/20/01: If you have read the Star Wars Insider magazine (the Official Star Wars Fan Club publication) then I am sure that you are just as disappointed as I am that there NEVER have been ANY articles about the Ewok films and its' stars. They have interviewed every person that is seen in the Star Wars Trilogy for one millisecond, but they have never had a feature on the Ewok films... But there now is hope for such a feature! Recently, the Official Star Wars Fan Club was purchased by Wizards of the Coast. By looking at their website, you'll notice that the new editors and management are much more open to suggestions than the previous license-holders, Fantastic Media. Their new website is at www.wizards.com. If you look carefully, you'll even find an E-MAIL ADDRESS where you can send suggestions! That's right, they're asking YOU about what YOU want to see in their magazine, and you don't even need a stamp and an envelope to send it! So, what are you waiting for! If you would like to see an article on the Ewoks movies, e-mail them at SWInsider@wizards.com and tell them. And while you're at it, subscribe to their terrific magazine already!
