Star Wars Episode V.II: Caravan Of Courage

Author

Here we go again. I heard that the Ewoks television movie “Caravan Of Courage” was a bit bad due to a simple story. Plus, a narrator would never be used in a Star Wars movie anyway. Here’s how I think it should go.

-Cinemascope aspect ratio like the rest of the saga
-New 20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm logos
-An opening crawl in place of it’s original opening sequence (Any credits mentioned in the opening will be mentioned at the end)

And that’s all I can think of. I may need some experts like Adywan or some one else to do this fanedit. I may also need an .mp4 file of a remastered (UHD) version of the film. That’s all I can say. Any replies?

Production wise, it’s well made for what it is, a kid’s film. Fan expectations that it was going to be like ROTJ were misplaced.

Could there be some way to edit both the movies into a mini series?

Well, I was also thinking of Battle For Endor being Episode V.III…may add a few scenes for that, like Vader watching construction on the second Death Star…

Update: Just finished the opening crawl. Here’s what it will say.

Episode V.II

CARAVAN OF COURAGE

The Empire has again been stopped.
Thanks to Luke Skywalker and
the Rebellion, the galaxy has once
again been freed.

However, on Endor, species called
GORAX have planned a battle
on the peaceful moon’s population.

A family with the name of Towani
is on their cruiser not knowing
of the conflict happening…

It’s okay if it looks like it needs edits, you could also do an opening crawl and send it to me.

I think the real issue is this doesn’t feel like Star Wars at all, but instead some poorly made 80’s family film- featuring Ewok Costumes.

LOL, true. But I remember as a kid I couldn’t wait for this to air, because, well it had Star Wars characters. Besides at the time this aired, most of my movie experience was family films.

Are you sure it’s V.II then ?

(not VI.II ?)

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

It supposed to be set in between Empire Strikes Back and Battle for Endor. When I say that the “Empire has been stopped” I don’t mean that it’s all gone. I mean as in “foiled again”.

UPDATE: I may use some music composed by John Williams, like the finale and credits of AotC.

…And it’s already finished. LOOK AT HOW SHORT THIS THREAD WAS! Gee, I am nuts mainly because of Shahab Zargari of doing the editing most of the time…

What? I just was saying! Anyway, I’ll need to put this on a DVD-R…
