I found this Q&A article from 2010 by adywan. One of the questions he was asked was what would he change about the Battle of Endor and the Ewoks.
If technology/existing footage weren’t an issue, what would you change about the Endor battle? Would you keep the Ewoks?
I’d make the Ewoks more vicious for one instead of looking like teddy bears play fighting and more troops during the ground battle. The choreography of the fighting wasn’t too good so i would reshoot most of the ground battle
Even though this is from 9 years ago, is the idea for the Ewoks being more vicious still being considered?
