Radar Blips - Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure

The Year: 1984

The Players: Warwick Davis as Wicket, and a couple annoying kids

The Take: Only released theatrically overseas. In the US, it was a Sunday night TV movie

What's an Ewok: C'mon, everyone knows what an Ewok is right? Its sort of a half-man half teddy bear. Much more cuddly than the man-sized Wookies.

Why you should see it: Really, the main reason to see this film is to get that nostalgic Ewok feeling. The movie is pretty so-so, but them Ewoks are so cuddly. There isn't much here that would even identify the world as part of Star Wars (aside from the Ewoks and stop-motion effects) but it is still a fun little adventure. If nothing else, it will make you even more happy there was never a "Gungun Adventure" movie.

Watch the trailer here (sorry, i couldn't find an embeddable clip)
