A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
It’s an adventure series, but there are positive messages about the importance of family, friendship, helping others, and understanding those who are different.
Positive Role Models
The Ewoks are kind, giving, and loyal. Mace wants to be independent, and often makes mistakes, but is a good older brother to Cindel. He’s also very brave.
Violence & Scariness
Laser guns are visible, and fired. Large scary creatures are visible. The children get injured, but come out okay. A few characters die.

Products & Purchases
The series features characters from the Star Wars franchise, which has tons of merchandising tie-ins. There's a long-standing belief that the Ewoks were specifically marketed and designed to sell toys to younger children.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Medicines are created and administered to help Cindel get better.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Caravan Of Courage: An Ewok Adventure is a 1984 movie spin-off from the Star Wars franchise featuring the iconic Ewoks. There's some laser gun violence, scary monster-like creatures, and a few deaths, but there's no blood or anything gory. Injuries (red skin marks) are visible, too. Nonetheless, the movie is geared towards a younger adult audience. As with all Star Wars installments, there is massive merchandising embedded in the brand.
Is It Any Good?
This vintage film from the Star Wars universe features the furry iconic creatures made famous by Episode VI: The Return of The Jedi. But despite the familiar teddy bear-like characters, the plot line is unrelated to those introduced in the popular film. It's also geared towards a younger audience.
Unfortunately, Caravan Of Courage: An Ewok Adventure has not aged well over the years. The pace is slow, and the acting isn't very good. The cinematography and special effects aren't classic enough to be nostalgic, and it lacks the elegance of contemporary installments of the franchise. Tweens may find it entertaining enough, but most fans will be fine to sit this one out.
