Definitely wouldn’t mind checking these out. Despite the fact that I never actually watched them, these films occupy a strange and unique place in my Star Wars nostalgia. Back in the early 90s, when Star Wars was little more than a vague yet looming cultural landmark on the periphery of my awareness, I remember always seeing the Ewok films on the shelves of video rental stores along with the main films. For a long time I assumed that they, and the Ewok species in general, were a much more important part of the Star Wars saga than they actually were.

Of course, once the TPM hype train came along, I finally dove headfirst into Star Wars and learned that the Ewoks were just some unnamed alien side characters added to the third movie to sell toys and that the Ewok movies were just some weird spinoffs. But I’ve always been a bit curious about what the heck those movies were all about.

Just had a quick look at the two Ewok films on Disney+. They look like they could be new HD masters but they do suffer with bad compression where the grain is concerned, so not 100% sure they’re not just upscales from the DVD master, although they do look a lot more detailed to me. The Holiday Special animation , although it claims on the app that its HD, is just what we had on the Blu-Ray.
