Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

The Star Wars TV spin-offs of the mid-'80s don't have a great reputation, and it's easy to see why. Ewoks: The Battle of Endor begins by ditching three quarters of the family from its predecessor, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, and thus any emotional connections that might have come with it. The script problems continue from there, mostly because it was made to appeal to younger viewers than the trilogy does, like making the protagonist a six-year-old and the Ewoks speak English. That said, if Star Wars fans can get past the simplistic story (and some unfortunate character design), there's some enjoyable stuff here, mostly because the special effects hold up nearly as well as the original trilogy's do. If nothing else, Endor is a nice place to visit, even if humans wouldn't want to live there.
