I love the Ewoks.
The Ewoks are the small and furry residents of the forest moon of Endor, first appearing in the 1983 film, “Return of the Jedi”. Their cute appearance may have added some controversy with the fandom considering them only a merchandise gimmick, but I see them as a strong and fun addition to the story. The Ewoks played a significant role in the final battle. With their bravery and rustic ingenuity, they overcame their size and lack of advanced technology to help the Rebel Alliance defeat the Empire. It is another “David and Goliath” story that proves there is always “hope”, and is that not what the Rebellion has always been driven by?
So I was thrilled to hear about a new project featuring my favorite furry heroes in a new documentary about the Ewok movies from the 1980’s but, the creators need your help and have launched a Kickstarter that ends in 40 hours!
From the official Kickstarter Campaign:
Do you remember the Ewok movies Disney & Lucasfilm would rather you not know about?
Help 21-year-old Rondo Award-winning filmmaker Tom Grove preserve never-before-seen footage and images of the made-for-television Ewok movies. By contributing to this Kickstarter, you’ll be helping gain interviews with WARWICK DAVIS, TONY COX and many more from Caravan of Courage and The Battle for Endor!
