Some TV airings have the following scene cut when Cindel has a nightmare about bad guys coming into Noa's house after her: Cindel rushes to Noa's bed to wake him up, but instead finds Terak in the bed, then she wakes up. In the cut version it just shows her waking up after the men break in. See more »

Visuals add more sparks to this Ewok follow-up.
15 May 1999 | by emmSee all my reviews

This steady-going follow-up is simply both more and less. Even though the stop-motion effects look out of date, the visual quality is an improvement over the previous Ewok adventure. You won't be seeing too many strings attached anymore, and the costume appearances are much cleaner. What it lacks for the continuous thrills and excitement of the last one greatly gains in the characters including "Cindel", "Noa", and the stellar cast of Ewoks. Both movie adventures aren't too shabby when it comes to George Lucas' imaginable sensations, but does this mean they're an absolute must-have for every STAR WARS collector? Hmmm....
