I would’ve liked the Ewoks if they’d looked less like teddy bears and more like miniature versions of this:
Though the performances still would’ve suffered having to rely on little person actors. I don’t mean to offend, but they don’t make for the best agile arboreal creatures.
I do wonder why Lucas did not change the Ewoks for his Special Editions, other than the blinking. Add some teeth or make them a little more scary or fierce, even if just when in battle.
Maybe even shooting some new fiercer Ewok vs Imperials scenes in a forest for it, and adding some CGI later on.
