This old movie is kinda rad. I dig it. My girlfriend turned me on to it because she remembered she liked the movie as a kid, but hadn’t been able to find the movie on Netflix, at Blockbuster, or anywhere. She warned me however, that she thinks the movie is a bit corny, and the “special effects” are totally 1980′s. Of course, this made-for-tv movie came out in 1985, so I find the corniness acceptable.
I decided to search eBay and found a VHS copy that was like new, and it played beautifully with a great picture!
As I said, it is a 1985 made-for-TV movie that is set in the Star Wars galaxy. A sequel to Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, this movie focuses on the primary character named Cindel, a little girl from the first film, who, after being orphaned, joins the Ewoks in protecting their village and defeating the evil marauders who have taken control of the Endor moon.
The main Ewok in the film is Wicket, played by actor Warwick Davis. Television personality Matt Roloff plays an Ewok in this movie, he can be seen as the Ewok on crutches. Also, Wilford Brimley plays the character of Noa.
