Review

Firstly this is no longer a canon piece; instead sent off to the vaults of Legends (like a lot of the good stuff!). This piece is set during the short-lived morning cartoons "The Ewoks," - which is now on Disney+, so watch it. The TV show was silly, fun, and perfect for young children, and this comic continues that theme. In the show, it turns out Endor has many ecosystems and lifeforms - from swamps, deserts and dangerous Lizardmen, Space Pirates and Ogres! It would seem Endor is a death planet full of danger!

As with the TV show, all the action follows Wicket, Teebo and Princess Kneesa as they bounce from danger to adventure and back again. The stories are light-hearted and magical, almost like a fantasy setting than sci-fi. It is an excellent piece of escapism and took me instantly back to my childhood. I'm glad I took the risk and was happy to share it with the children. Now to finish rewatching the cartoons.

Have a great week!
