* BadassAdorable: All the Ewoks count, but special points go out to Chukha-Trok for doing things like chasing down a galloping horse and taking on the Gorax with only an axe.
* BadassFamily: Wicket's family, which include his two older brothers and father volunteering to go on a dangerous journey no Ewok has ever returned from.

They allowed their wearer to take the shape of another creature hers was the raven.) When her ring was destroyed she was [[AndIMustScream stuck in the form of a raven]].
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Barely 10 minutes into the film, Mace is killed, and so are both parents. Cindel is the only human protagonist from the first film to survive the second one.

In the mid-1980s, two [[MadeForTVMovie Made-for-TV Movies]] based on the StarWars franchise were created: ''The Ewok Adventure'' (1984), later retitled ''Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure'',[[note]]Not to be confused with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caravan_of_Courage_(series) a road trip taken by Hamish Blake and Andy Lee]][[/note]] and ''Ewoks: The Battle for Endor'' (1985). They star a young child, Cindel, whose family has crash-landed on Endor, and Wicket, the Ewok who befriended Leia in ''ReturnOfTheJedi''. The success of these movies led to an animated series, ''WesternAnimation/{{Ewoks}}'', which ran for two seasons. The main character, Cindel, got a cameo much later in an Expanded Universe novel as a reporter.
