Ewoks TV show in the works on Disney+

Is it the Endor or just the beginning?

Unless the wi-fi has been playing up in the Cantina, you’ll be aware that Disney’s streaming channel Disney + are about to ‘force’ a couple of new “Star Wars” related series on us – most notably, the recently wrapped “The Mandalorian” (which is apparently terrific), from EP Jon Favreau.

And it won’t end there, with the house of mouse and the house of Kennedy already secretly working on other “Star Wars” projects that’ll premiere on the small screen. One of those upcoming may feature the return of the Ewoks.

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the pint-sized moon creatures are one of the most recognizable species in the “Star Wars” universe. And with Disney+ not just in the business of making shows for us, older “Star Wars” fans, but also the excitable younglings, it should be no surprise to hear that a new Ewoks series is being discussed.

The news of the Empire-hating Ewoks’ return to the screen – which comes courtesy a reputable insider, someone who has also provided us with extra info on a scoop we ran last week on “The Quarry” to star Michael Shannon and Shea Whigham, which we’ll run soon – will no doubt be music to the ears of toy retailers, who’ll likely sell furballs in the millions once the show hits. It’s unlikely to be part of the first phase of “Star Wars” shows, which are rumored to kick off around Halloween, but could be part of the second run, rumored to launch in the next 12-18 months.

The Ewoks made their debut in “Return of the Jedi” on the bigscreen before getting their own solo outing in 1984 telemovie “The Ewok Adventure” (aka “Caravan of Courage”). A second telemovie “Battle for Endor” aired in 1985. That same year ABC premiered the popular animated series “Ewoks”, which ran for two seasons.

I'm ok with this... I won't watch but Disney's version of Netflix needs to have something like this for the kids and it helps me believe that Mandalorian will be more adult themed.

I've never hated the Ewoks like a lot of fans do. That said I've never watched the two movies or animated series and don't have much interest to. I agree with Rob V's sentiments though. It makes sense Disney+ is going to have a wide range of new content for all ages. Disney is a family entertainment company and this makes sense.

What next, Droids?

I am a little surprised we never got more flash animated shorts with Porgs.

I dunno, can anything possibly live up to the excellence of the two previous Ewok movies?

Excuse me, I need to check under the kitchen sink and see if I have some leftover rat poison for my margarita...
