Caravan of Courage - International Theatrical Trailer

Does anyone know where to find an English-language copy of the international theatrical trailer used to promote Caravan of Courage: The Ewok Adventure? It’s online in Spanish and German versions, but the original English version seems pretty tough to find.

Spanish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r16BVkkytaY
German: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6Du2okvV7Q

The runtime on the BBFC submission for the trailer looks closer to the more common US video trailer (https://www.bbfc.co.uk/releases/caravan-courage-ewok-adventure-1970); anyone seen it on a CBS/Fox tape released in the UK?

Holy Bantha poodoo! Never seen these before. They don’t look like tv movies at all here. If only some prints would turn up.

Are those the actual theatrical trailers or were they just dubbed for rental VHS ads? It could very well be the latter, but still cool.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

Well, I may not have found an English-language version of that trailer yet, but I have just found a copy of the French theatrical trailer, which is very similar to the ones listed above but quite different too. It’s a watermarked copy grabbed from a French TV archive site - the same site has several different live performances of the French version of the film’s end credits theme song, “Les Petit Ewoks” by Dorothée: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euVpCyu245U

I have seen film cels on Ebay. But they are faded and look like they are from a 35mm trailer possibly. Unless it is from a flat print. I think for the Ewok Adventure.
I wish someone had scanned that print instead of cutting it up.
