Editorial Reviews

Man, I was really looking forward to this. "Ewoks on DVD? Sweet beans!" Ah, no. Instead of a standard DVD boxed set of the thirty-eight episodes in the series, we get, after years of waiting, a couple of poorly edited episodes stuck together and billed as a "feature film" just a few years after the same stunt was pulled on VHS. Hmmmm . . .\r\n\r\nSeriously now: does ANYONE prefer these cobbled-together "movies" with about five separate plots to the ordinary method of NOT BUTCHERING the original episodes and packaging them together by season with the opening theme song and closing credits intact? Maybe if they made both versions available, but NO. We get stuck with the same crap that we can still get on VHS. \r\n\r\nAnd as if this abominable amalgamation wasn't bad enough, they're not even releasing all the episodes in this format. Someone, PLEASE help me wrap my head around this logic. What possible reason can there be for not releasing all of the episodes, especially when half of the ones they are releasing, screwed up though they may be, were just released a few years ago? What is this, some kind of sick mental game? Will they wait until DVDs are obsolete and then start selectively releasing episodes AGAIN?\r\n\r\nCome on, Lucasfilm, you're better than this. Almost EVERYBODY ELSE gets this stuff right; why can't you?\r\n\r\nLooks like I'll just have to sit back and wait for "next time," whenever that may be.

Almost EVERYBODY ELSE gets this stuff right; why can't you?
José Fernandez
Season two also was a bit more varied with several of the episodes split into two stories, offering more tales from the Endor woods.
Jason Serra
And yes, the Holiday Special will get released eventually ("Because you demanded it...") with several DVD editions.

Don't take my rating wrong, I don't hate this cartoon, what I hate is the way Lucasfilm has handled the property. Basically what this release is is 8 episodes from the first season of the show cobbled together to form two very unbalanced animated films. What we do get is basically 8 episodes of the show with new adult Wicket voice-overs. What we don't get is the opening theme song, original end credits, and I have a feeling original music (though I guess I'll never know since this will probably be the only release in this format.) At least the "chapters" are labeled with the original episode titles. I know this sounds nit-picky and in the vein of the "complainers" of the ill done reissues of the Original Star Wars trilogy on DVD, but come on. What is the purpose of releasing an old saturday morning cartoon, almost certainly because the fans demanded it for nostalgia purposes, and then heavily editing it so that it has almost no feel of how it originally aired?

Not because of a hate for Ewoks. I love the Ewoks & the droids. This IS NOT the cartoon that was on Saturday mornings in the 1980's. This is a few of the episodes badly put together to make a film that has four or five plots. The cartoon that used to be on had two seasons, one of them running with the droids. This is the same garbage that was pushed on VHS. Do not waste your money. What's wrong with Lucasfilm?

The problem with this is that unlike all other TV series which generally include proper credits for each episode, commentaries, special features, original music & sounds... in other words, the real TV series, this offers NOTHING. This is a cheap way to test the waters to see if anyone would drop the cash on the whole set. Lucasfilm says "this is what people have been waiting for." No, no it isn't. Season one of the Ewoks ran with the droids in a program called "The Ewoks & Droids Adventure Hour" & had a wonderful theme song by blues artist Taj Mahal. The stories were wonderful & in a way, built on one another. Season two ran alone & was drawn a bit differently & focused mainly on Wicket, Teebo, Kneesaa, & Latara. It was geared mostly for the very young, except for a couple of episodes ("The Night of the Stranger" & "Battle For The Sunstar"). Season two also was a bit more varied with several of the episodes split into two stories, offering more tales from the Endor woods.

At any rate, this IS NOT what people have been waiting for at all. It's the same as it was on VHS, meaning that they only offer a few episodes, different music, & a whole lot of nothing else. Wait for the release of the rest of the series (but not too long, because they never will). If you want to blow your dough on this, go ahead. I certainly wouldn't.

Clearly, the Lucasfilm motto: "Don't give them everything, or else how are we going to milk this in the future?"

Yes, it's wonderful that they are releasing this - but be honest - this is either a half-hearted effort OR a devious plan for future double dipping. Lucasfilm is started to gain a notorious rep for releasing titles with little features (i.e. the Indiana Jones box set - no commentaries) or "modified" versions with obvious plans for double-dipping the public (i.e. The Star Wars Trilogy - hello). I agree with the many reviewers who wanted the complete series of Ewoks and Droids. Expect this to happen with the future planned Star Wars TV series, too. Why release the entire season, when they can milk several DVDs throughout several years. And yes, the Holiday Special will get released eventually ("Because you demanded it...") with several DVD editions. I wish Lucasfilm would recognize the fan base, instead of just mapping out where the dollar signs are. They did a wonderful job with books in the 1990's, now it's time for the DVDs.
