Star Wars: Making the Ewok Adventures Part 1 - Caravan of Courage
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Oh6qgmVfo8 - from the Stian A. Olsen YouTube channel (11 mins long).

The blurb:
“Right after George Lucas completed the original Star Wars trilogy, the idea of a TV-movie with the Ewoks was conceived. Since there is no official “Making of” for the Two Ewok Adventures I decided to gather the information and make it myself. This two-part unofficial documentary is made for educational purposes. All rights belong to the respective owners, no copyright infringement intended. This is a labor of love. Part 1 focuses on The first TV-movie An Ewok Adventure/ Caravan of Courage.”

Star Wars: Making the Ewok Adventures Part 2 - Battle for Endor
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb6k6GD2Kis - from the Stian A. Olsen YouTube channel (12 mins long).

The blurb:
“This two-part unofficial documentary is made for educational purposes. All rights belong to the respective owners, no copyright infringement intended. This is a labor of love. Part 2 focuses on second TV-movie Ewoks: The Battle for Endor/ Ewoks and the Marauders of Endor.”

So many feels going on in this one, but I totally understand why this movie couldn’t get made. I wonder if Villeneuve will use any of the concepts and ideas from this… I’m sure he’s seen the “DUNE book”, that massive tome of storyboards and artwork (hell, I’d like to see it!)

I highly doubt he will, and I don’t think he should either. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see Jodorowsky’s version finished in some manner, maybe as an animated film like he suggested in the doc, but having read the original novel I get why the whole thing rubs people the wrong way. Jodorowsky’s Dune would have been his version of Dune, and had little to nothing to do with the Herbert’s novel other than a few names and core plot-points. So I hope Villeneuve manages to make the definitive faithful adaptation, and maybe at some later point the Jodorowsky version can finally be made as an alternate interpretation.

However, speaking of Dune movies;

I have always felt the ESB screenplay credit is unfair to Kasdan. I mean if Lucas really wanted to credit Brackett’s discarded work, at least they should have put Kasdan’s name first on the list.

Yeah, it’s a bit strange. Also, I liteally had to go check the end credit as I did not remember Brackett being credited first. I’ve always just taken it for granted that ESB and ROTJ was written by Kasdan.

I also find it amusing, and a bit strange, that the script says its based on the novel by George Lucas. With stuff like this I find it less and less strange that there are people who believe that SW is based on novels.

So there was a talent agency specializing in Ugly looking gents? Only in England! 😉

Yeah, I was a bit surprised at that myself, especially since I’ve done some short film casting myself. Then again, it makes a lot of sense, though I can’t imagine being so blunt about it would go down well nowadays. Or maybe it would? I’ve never needed an “ugly” actor, specifically.

Have anyone seen any photos of this droid before? The post said it was from ROTJ, but I couldn’t spot it in the torture droid scene, so this is either a background character that didn’t make the cut or they replaced it with another design at some point.

Ah, thanks.

This was the best picture I could find, but it seems he stood by the entrance to the “throne room.” Explains why I didn’t find him in the droid torture chamber scene.

The heck? The Unknown Comic was in ROTJ?

Unfortunately this picture didn’t come with any explanation. However, judging by a lot of these photos, I’m sure Hamill (like the rest of he cast) was just having fun and goofing off

This one’s pretty interesting. Those markings weren’t on the helmet in the finished film so I’m guessing this is from a costume test or something like that.

Back in the day the Boba Fett fandom knew all about how his armor changed color between films, and about various costume tests, both this one and the all-white version. Interesting how that sort of thing gets forgotten generationally.

Well, I know there’s subtle differences throughout ESB and ROTJ, and I know those markings showed up in the concept art, but this is the first time I’ve seen them on the actual costume.

There is another OT trailer of the UK Double-Bill of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back from 1982. Can’t see it anywhere - it may have only been a TV spot rather than a full theatrical trailer, but it definitely exits. This also gets me thinking if there was also a trailer (or TV spot) for the triple bill from 1983 (or was it 1984)?

I’d love to see that if such a thing exists - that double bill was the experience that got the whole thing started for me. (By the way, the Revenge of the Jedi trailer that showed exclusively in those screenings was posted earlier in this thread).

Sky Movies did a couple of lovely animated idents for their Star Wars Channel:

Do you know which year the first one is from? Only the second video had a date in the title/description.
