I always thought they should land on endor at night it makes sense because would do a raid in the middle of the day you would think having the cover of night would be beneficial, I mean they didn’t even know there was a back door untIL the ewoks told them…when they got to the bunker.
Axe the ewoks Hans team is on a time crunch, no time to hang out all night in care bear land. And what did the other troops do while our hero’s were at the village anyway?
Another benefit to it being dark is being able to see endor prime and the ds2 in the sky, like when they’re standing outside at gunpoint maybe they can see the space battle above even the ds2 popping off shots making it even more dramatic…!!!
I’ve even thought about taking chewie out of the bunker, in the deleted scenes Han call s for chewie a lot. I would like to think chewie senses it’s a trap and seeks off and comma deers the atst.
That’s how they get free from being captured. Chewie just starts blasting away at them from out of nowhere.
