Hate Ewoks?

Author

I grew up with the original trilogy but absolute hate the Ewoks. Hated them as a kid, hate them now. They just seem so unrealistic as warriors, look like kids in teddy bear suits, and cheapen the whole ending to an otherwise amazing trilogy. Am I the only one that hates them so much? Before you answer know that I even hate them more than Jar Jar Binks. As bad as that cartoon rabbit is, he only messed up an already messed up prequel trilogy. Ewoks hurt the original!

I hate them so much I just finished editing Return of the Jedi in PremierPro to completely remove them from the movie, so I can watch it in peace. Am I crazy?

No, I don’t hate Ewoks. And the movie doesn’t work if they’re edited out unless someone were to shoot whole new scenes.

I don’t hate them, but the pacing of their scenes kills the movie for a long stretch. It should have been tightened up, and they should be more vicious and tribal.

Maybe it’s because I was a 4 year old in 1983, but I’ve always loved the Ewoks.

Said it before, but George’s decisions (happy ending, not bittersweet) means my childhood is forever locked with a party on a forest moon.

I don’t hate them but I think it would’ve worked out a little better if they’d been Wookiees like George originally planned.

Agreed.

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

See, now that would have been cool and believable, bowcasters vs. sticks and stones. Assuming they were as realistic as Chewbacca and not like the Wookies on the Xmas special.

This is the same for me. I grew up with them just at that “right age” so perhaps we appreciate them more. I sometimes wish they could have been a little more fierce, and sounding a bit more hostile too. But it takes nothing away from my enjoyment when I see the film again.

I also enjoyed the 2 Ewok films as a kid, and the toy figures too. But the cartoon TV series was far too much, even for me!
