Lucas changes Star Wars again.. Ewok Adventures DVD

Nothing really at all, but this is from TheForce.net:

Caravan of Courage DVD Changes
Mon, Nov 29, 04 11:04:15 AM EST


While it's not the replacement of all Ewoks with Wookies, vincehardy chimes in with some subtle changes made to the DVD release of "Caravan of Courage".

Just pointing out a few differences between the Laserdisc and DVD release of Caravan of Courage.

The first image

is the opening logo. Since MGM/UA Home Video was the distributor at the time it is now replaced by the 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment logo and the Lucasfilm logo. The laserdisc goes straight to the first shot of the movie but the DVD starts with a vintage 20th Century Fox logo and fanfare followed by "A lucasfilm Production" which makes me think the DVD could be a copy from an overseas theatrical release?

The second image

speaks for itself: the title has changed from "The Ewok Adventure" to "Caravan Of Courage, An Ewok Adventure"

Third image

teleplay by Bob Carrau is now a screeplay.

Also on my DVD, "Caravan of Courage" (the first movie) is on side B

Thanks for the update, Vince!

He also made the color better! Dammit!

It's a screenplay vs teleplay, becasue this is the theatrical version (released in theaters overseas as "Caravan of Courage"). Teleplay means TV script, so that obviiously doesn't apply to a theatrical release, now does it?

yeah, the guy from TheForce.net also said this: (as above) "...the DVD starts with a vintage 20th Century Fox logo and fanfare followed by "A lucasfilm Production" which makes me think the DVD could be a copy from an overseas theatrical release?"

Probably the same reason that only one side of The Transporter DVD is labeled. A stupid mistake.

Is the transfer really that blue, or is that just from the low-quality screenshot?

My thoughts as well... there's some MAJOR color timing changes there.

It isn't 'changed'. This is the original version that was released to theaters overseas in the mid-1980s. It was titled "Caravan of Courage" everywhere except the U.S.

And since it was a theatrical release instead of a TV movie, the 'screenplay' credit is required.

And the changing studio logos? That happens just about any time any movie changes hands.


This is a non-issue. Except it's Lucas. So sites are writing articles about it with screenshots.

Only the repeated insertion of Lucas raping our childhoods. The teleplay shoots first!
