The Ewoks were originally supposed to be a tribe of Wookiees. In pre-production, though, the decision was made to go to short creatures with short fur rather than very tall creatures with longer fur and, hence, the Ewoks were created (Ewok may very well have been created by rearranging the sounds in the word "Wookiee").

David West Reynolds, an ILM employee, discovered missing footage and had stills shots from these scenes published in Star Wars Insider magazine. These include: A sand storm scene after the death of Jabba, the matte painting of which can be seen in the Industrial Light & Magic book. Han describes the hibernation as being awake and unable to move. A scene where Darth Vader chokes one of the Imperial Guards while trying to see the Emperor. See more »
I first became a Star Wars fan with the help of my father who would sit with me and watch the entire trilogy together. I always loved A New Hope [which I always called Star Wars up until the re-release because we had the original VHS set], had a semi-dislike of The Empire Strikes Back [but, I have grown to like it now], and absolutely loved The Return of the Jedi. My favorite scene was always the ending scene of Luke looking at the three Jedi Masters of his life.
And now I after watching the DVD edition, I miss Sebastian Shaw, the original Anakin Skywalker. Now, I am forced to watch Hayden Christensen take his spot. Yes, he is who portrays Anakin before and during his fall to the dark side in the beginning trilogy, but I feel that Mr.Lucas should have left Mr.Shaw at the end of Return of the Jedi. It is almost like forgetting that Darth Vader turned away from the dark side and became part of the light in the end.
Unfortionatly, my family no longer has our original VHS of RotJ due to over watching. It became so well worn with use that it would no longer play. I am deeply enamored of those who still have the pleasure of the original VHS, for I believe that to be the better rendition of a favorite movie of mine.
