Editorial Reviews

Reading through all these people bashing these movies has me shaking my head. Really what can you expect out of television movies about Ewoks? To criticize these movies as being too childish is like criticizing the smurfs for being blue. \r\nThese movies were made for kids and not the people like me who saw the original STAR WARS movies in the theater as a kid but are now in their 30s. Really though to be able to get two movies on DVD for about half the price of a tank of gas to me sounds like an okay deal. People really should lighten up and take into account the audience these TV movies were made for.\r\nOne bright spot in these movies are some quite ambitious special effects (for TV at least).

I remember seeing these two television movies when during their original television release when they were named "The Ewok Adventure" & "The Ewoks Battle for Endor" - I was 9 when "The Ewok Adventure" was on television and 10 when "The Ewoks Battle for Endor" was released and I loved them then and now. After a bit of research I discovered that these two movies take place between "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" and "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi," even though I remember them both coming out after the 1983 release of "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" back when I was 8 years old. Once again George Lucas was both writer & executive producer as he did with "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" & "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" and that in part is what made these two television movies so good, because George Lucas is a great storyteller, creating great characters and a great adventure to watch those characters grow within the film, but he is no director.

Even though these movies came out after the first trilogy had gone its course these movies were intended to give us a proper introduction to the Ewoks and their way of life - not to mention capitalized on their popularity. These movies are light-hearted and fun to watch and because their only connection to the "Star Wars" saga happens outside of these two movies these can be watched without any knowledge of the "Star Wars" storyline and still be enjoyed. These movies are pure fun for young and old and great for a family with children to have an evening of entertainment. I highly recommend both of these two movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A double feature? October 12, 2004
Format:DVD
I have seen both of these movies a dozen times & I love them. Up until the Clone Wars cartoon, I refered to the Battle For Endor as the best non star wars star wars. I still enjoy them. I recommend getting them & enjoying them with the whole family. Putting them as a double feature is a great idea (is it too much to hope for commentaries or featurettes too?), but my only question is this... why no third one? It seems like a good idea & Cindel promised Wicket she'd return. I guess 20 years is a long time to wait for another one. Maybe if they let me write it... Anyway, great packaging & I can't wait for the 23rd. Wonderful movies!

4.0 out of 5 stars EWOKS! August 22, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Once, at a toy store, I saw this movie. I thought,"No. The ewoks just don't look right." But later,on Amazon, I decided to look it up, since I like the cute little ewoks so much. Mom got the movie for my birthday. I watched it very soon, but I didn't know the disk was double sided, so by accident I watched The Battle for Endor first. So watch the red side first. Although the movie does not seem like Star Wars, it wisks you off to the forest moon of Endor with some old friends, and some charming new acquaintences.The Caravan of Courage is not as good as The Battle of Endor because there is not as much Ewok fighting action. I cried a bit at some sad parts, and my kid brother got scared of the Gorax, a big hairy monster. But as a young lady, I think the Ewoks are so CUTE! I'm pleased that they made an Ewok movie for Ewok fans! Now for the suggestions. I would not suggest getting this movie for little kids that get upset when "Good Guys" die, or are afraid of scary masks or monsters(My brother hid in the kitchen). My Dad says,"It's not just corny, but it's 80s'corny!" But this is the cutest movie I have ever seen! If you like Ewoks, this movie is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Ewoks... December 10, 2007
Format:DVD
Not everyone was a fan of the teddy bear-like additions to the Star Wars universe George Lucas introduced us to in Return of the Jedi (1983), but if you were (as I was), then you were in luck! Not only did Ewok fans get an animated series based on the cuddly creatures, but two TV movies as well! Naturally, the most popular Ewok of all, young Wicket W. Warrick, was the star furball in both TV outings which told the story of the Towani family, four humans who had become stranded on the forest moon of Endor.

The first of these all-knew, live-action Ewok adventures (said to have taken place shortly before Return of the Jedi) was 1984's "Caravan of Courage," though it was better known in the U.S. as simply "The Ewok Adventure". In this first 96 minute film, a holiday charm is added to the originally late-November affair by the addition of Burl Ives as narrator. Perhaps this, along with having a story focused on a human family, was to avoid the troubles of the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special in which the Wookie language composed far too much of the dialogue. Anyway, in "Caravan of Courage," the two Towani children, a four-year-old girl named Cindel and her stubborn teenage brother Mace, find themselves in need of assistance when their parents disappear from the crash site of their family's starcruiser. Though Mace is reluctant to accept help the whole time, the selfless Ewoks form a questing party to retrieve the adults from the lair of the dreaded Gorax, a giant that is set on devouring the caged Towani parents. "Caravan of Courage" is a delightful film for the whole family, if you love Ewoks that is. It's a sweet, magical, and adventurous tale about family bonds, courage, faith, love, and unselfishness.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute Star Wars spinoff- oddly lackluster DVD
The movie itself is a little polarizing- it's one of the few Expanded Universe like action videos ( the holiday special being one of the others) and it's hit or miss. Read more
