The Ewok Adventure
Those furry creatures introduced in "Return of the Jedi" provided George Lucas with his entry into television in this remarkable film odyssey, given a visual excitement from Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic company that transforms the Ewok's adventures with two young space castaways searching for their imperiled parents into a wondrous extraterrestrial one. Lucas wrote the script and was executive producer for this intriguing film that won an Emmy Award nomination as Outstanding Children's Program.
Overseas, where it was retitled "Caravan of Courage," its theatrical premiere caused nearly as much excitement as the opening of Lucas' "Star Wars." Its television sequel a year later was entitled "Ewoks: The Battle for Endor."
