I wish the Ewoks weren’t used for scenes of cute humour. I would have given them an even darker edge than what is seen in RETURN OF THE JEDI (the heroes about to be roasted on a spit).
Mr Lucas missed a golden opportunity with the SE of JEDI. I would have included shots of Ewoks feasting on cooked Imperial flesh - huge close-ups - DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) style.
Perhaps even a shot of a baby Ewok tasting it’s first Biker Scout?
