| A Childhood Classic
First things first, both this movie and the "Ewok Adventure" were made for TV-movies. Therefore, to compare them to Star Wars is unfair due to the differences in budgets and people on board. That being said, I love this movie! Both The Battle For Endor and The Ewok Adventure were childhood favorites of mine. The story is still entertaining, albeit still on a child's level. But that's OK, because that's what these movies were meant for. George Lucas continues to show us again and again how to believe in fantasy and have fun. I recommend watching this movie with the whole family, and if you're into the Star Wars Universe like myself, you'll certainly get a kick out it.

Despite some reviews, I think both the Battle For Endor and the Ewok Adventure are fun and well done (for TV) movies.

Trivia

When the film aired on ABC in 1985, a viewer warning came on to warn small children and younger viewers of the film's content: "Tonight's continuing fantasy adventure of Cindel and the Ewoks contains some scenes of suspense and jeopardy which may be too intense for very young viewers. Parents are encouraged to watch with their children". The film was rated PG by the MPPA for mild intense/disturbing images of sci-fi violence action and some startling moments.


Quotes

Terak: You have the power? You will give it to me, now!
Jeremitt: I don't have any power! My family and I, we're stangers here!
Terak: You will give me the power now!
Jeremitt: I don't know what you're talking about!
Terak: Ah!
Jeremitt: Oh, no! No, Please don't take that! Uhhh!


Goofs

It is wrongly assumed when Noah and Cindel arrive at the castle, Noah dips his staff into the moat to show that it is made of some type of acid and the walking staff head is melted away. However, when they are running from the castle, Noah's staff is once again complete and the head is perfectly in place. Firstly, it's not his staff Noa shoves in the water; it's a branch with leaves clearly visible on it. Secondly, it's not acid that melts it; there is a creature in the moat that attacks it. The same creature tries to get Wicket minutes later when he is dangling with his feet in the moat.


Alternate Versions

Some TV airings have the following scene cut when Cindel has a nightmare about bad guys coming into Noa's house after her: Cindel rushes to Noa's bed to wake him up, but instead finds Terak in the bed, then she wakes up. In the cut version it just shows her waking up after the men break in.
