DVD: Return of the Ewok and Other Little Films

Author
Time
The second DVD from the creator of Deleted Magic.

Orange Cow Productions is proud to present "Return of the Ewok and Other Little Films."

  This classic 24-minute film stars Warwick Davis as he tries to become a star - shot on the sets of Return of the Jedi, the film features your favorite Star Wars stars (Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, David Prowse, Jeremy Bulloch), as well as veteran actor Roy Kinnear.

I'd like to thank Skot the man Kirkwood for digging up a tape of Return of the Ewok that some fan shot with a camcorder at a screening. I've done a restoration job on it, as best I could, and I'm proud
to provide it on DVD.

   Extra stuff on the disc includes new "Deleted Magic" edits of the deleted Treadwell and Jabba scenes from Star Wars, with the Biggs, Chief Bast and Cantina scenes ...

   You'll also get a good transfer of The Making of Star Wars Special Edition (1997), along with other classic stuff -

+  Commercial for C-3POs
+  Burger Chef Commercial (1977)
+ Hi-Vision - George Lucas Japanese commercial
+ "The Creatures Go To England" - Return of the Jedi (from Classic Creatures/From Star Wars to Jedi)
+ Donny and Marie Osmond Star Wars Tribute (1977)
+ The Muppet Show with Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and R2-D2
+ Mark Hamill intro to Star Wars on TV (1984)
+ Star Tours Ride Video
+ THX Soundtrack! narrated by James Earl Jones



As always, you can ask me for the discs at [address removed].

Looks neat!

In "Making of SW", do you have the two audio tracks, one with William Conrad and one with the new narrator?

If not, I always thought that would be a neat little project.

I have an SE Pepsi commercial back in '97 with the wee boy slurping the Pepsi, and Darth Vader force chokes it, and the usher and Vader have a lightsaber fight.

I have it on tape.

How good is the Donny and Marie segment? (In terms of video quailty of course...) I have a copy of the whole show, but the built in TBC on my Panasonic doesn't like the squiggly video signal very much, so it's been on the back burner for a while.
And when the heck is someone going to "aqquire" the Cantina skit Richard Pryor did on his short lived tv series?

Where were you in '77?

I am sure that some kind soul round here could help you out with this request........


Anyway, "Return of the Ewok and Other Little Films." sounds like another winner from the creator of Deleted Magic. I cannot wait to see this along with all the extras.


Any news on the Star Wars Classic Edition???

I got that - It's just not on my list yet

I can't wait to see the results now on Restore of the Ewok.

Incidentally, The Muppet Show with Mark Hamill is supposedly available on some Muppet Show DVD. Can anybody tell me, so I can go buy it?

Also, I waited a long time for The Richard Pryor Show with the Star Wars Bar segment to be available on DVD. As soon as it came out, I bought it. There's a 3-disc box set (most common, I think), and then you can also get them as single discs. The Star Wars skit is on Volume 1. If you REALLY like Richard Pryor, buy the box set... it's got bonus material (but nothing more of Star Wars). Otherwise, just get the single disc Volume 1.

not trying to get the thread off topic, but if you want the muppet show episode with mark hamill its available on myspleen.net. Actually the whole muppet show series (all 5 seasons) is up there, you'd have to check which season its in, and then get a client that lets you select what files to download if thats all you want...but the episodes are pretty good quality.

I already have a very good quality copy of that Muppet Show episode... but if it's available as an actual DVD release, then I don't intend to be a cheap pirate bastard; I'll buy the thing! Plus, I always want these items in the best quality possible.

But thanks for the pointer... I don't think the whole Muppet Show series has been made available so far, so it's nice to know one can obtain it. Now if only we could get The Invaders series up there...

I don't have the non-Conrad Making of Star Wars. Perhaps someone will do a disc of that with the alternate audio, would be easy enough and somewhat interesting I suppose.

I have the 97 usher Pepsi commercial on tape somewhere as well. A while back, I promised ReverendBeastly that I would transfer three of his poor-quality 97 Special Edition specials (and commercials) to DVD as "Special Edition Hype" ... so it might wind up on that.

The Donny and Marie segment is the same from Rarities I. The video quality is pretty good but the audio is crackly.

The Richard Pryor Cantina segment appeared on Rarities II a while back. Someone ought to grab the new official version from the new Pryor DVDs, as the quality would obviously be much better.

Hopefully more news on Star Wars Classic Edition soon. Waiting on some new stuff from Russ Dawson, actually.


By the way, many thanks to Skot Kirkwood, Kenneth Anderson, Russ Dawson, JED, and Guillermo Gomez for their contributions to this disc.

The Mark Hamill Muppet Show is indeed available on DVD, and can be rented at many Blockbusters.

This encode is taken from that DVD, but it might be an extra generation of quality down the line by now. I'd have to check to be sure - quality is quite good though.


The encode of Making of the Special Edition is courtesy Russ Dawson, and is the best I've ever seen. It includes the Jedi SE trailer. The encode of Soundtrack! is courtesy Kenneth Anderson and is official-DVD quality. It is 16x9 formatted even though it's a 4x3 video, so on your computer it may appear in a smaller window onscreen. It will play fine on a TV however.




I have completed my third and I think final version of the Return of the Ewok disc.

Here's the info:

D1: first attempt.
D2: Same as D1, with an extra Jacket Picture added.
D3: Jabba scene further reedited and improved.


I have burned several copies of D2, so you might not get quite the best version of the Jabba scene ... all D1 and D2 copies are marked as such on the disc.

I would like to request that only the D3 version be torrented.

I believe that I have both on VHS...I should get around to putting them on DVD once I finish the TV Specials DVDs I'm currently working on. I distribute my stuff on a.b.starwars...I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Oh.... hehe...

Ok, I'll wait... with much pain in my heart.

I wanna watch that improved Jabba scene... among with the other stuff, of course.

Oh, speaking of Jabba (and totally off-topic), I just watched Episode 3 yesterday and in the credits there was some guy acting as (or voicing, or animating, or whatever) JaVVa The Hut. With 2 V's.

I think that's an onset thing .... or a special effects thing. Java.
