A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Highlights the importance of the extended family, making good choices, listening to the elders, respecting traditions, and protecting the trees.
Positive Role Models
Elders expect children to follow the rules laid out for them, and there are consequences if they do not. The young Ewoks aren’t bad, but they don’t always make the best choices. However, they learn from their mistakes.
Violence & Scariness
Magical sticks, exploding potions, and energy-sapping contraptions are used to capture creatures and create trouble. Some of the Ewok’s enemies are a little creepy, and some beasts look scary. Sometimes Ewoks fly through the air or fall from high trees, but no one gets hurt.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ewoks is a 1985 animated series featuring the iconic teddy bear-like Star Wars characters introduced into the franchise in Return Of The Jedi. Most of the series is separate from the franchise storylines, and contains positive messages about family, protecting the environment, and making good decisions. There's some fantasy violence, and on occasion some scary looking creatures that might frighten very young children. Otherwise, there's nothing to be worried about here.
Is It Any Good?
This lively children's series, which originally aired between1985 and 1986, features a cartoon version of the iconic furry creatures created by the Star Wars franchise. But most of the series is focused on their pre-Star Wars antics, and highlights themes like the importance of family and making positive decisions.
Young children do not have to be familiar with the franchise to make sense of it. However, those who are may not be too excited about Ewoks, given its vintage animation style and lack of references to popular characters, whether it be from the original film to more contemporary ones like The Mandalorian series. But older fans may enjoy the sense of nostalgia that re-watching the series will give them.
