Honestly? I like the Ewoks

I will defend Ewoks until my final breath. In fact, I already did it once two years ago when The Force Awakens came out. But hey, here’s the Honest Trailer about Return of the Jedi!

I went and saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi last night and I liked it well enough. I liked it to the degree that I like all modern Star Wars movies. It’s fun and energetic, with a lot to love. But…I have complaints, and nitpicks, and stuff that just knocks the movie down a couple notches for me. I’ll share all of those next Wednesday in my List of Six review! So stay tuned.

Bad Lip Reading is one of the greats. And they are not immune from the Star Wars bug.

At least all of these are pretty hilarious. There are worse ways to spend a Monday. Speaking of which, we’re not done yet!

In Defense of Ewoks

With the entire world thinking about Star Wars today, I’ve decided to get in on the act with a rather controversial statement:

I like the Ewoks in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

The cute, cuddly little teddy bear guys who aid the Rebel Alliance in defeating the Empire on the forest moon of Endor and blowing up the second Death Star. Most people seem to hate the Ewoks and everything they represent, but not me. I like the Ewoks just fine, thank you very much.

They sewed those hoods themselves

I think I understand where the hatred comes from. For one thing, it’s a bunch of little teddy bears fighting and defeating the mighty Empire. People don’t like that. There’s also the fact that the Ewoks were clearly created to sell toys. Star Wars is built on merchandise, and by the time the third movie came around, George Lucas knew exactly what he was doing.

But I don’t care about either of those things. They don’t bother me at all. And in defense of the Ewoks, I figure I’ll tell you why.

Join me after the jump for the cutest Star Wars article of the day!
