CANDLES 5

DIRECTOR: Raymond Jafelice

May contain spoilers!

Never being a fan of this cuddly cartoon about even more cuddly teddy bears which would both defeat the Galactic Empire and kiddify the Star Wars universe in a way would lead to the Prequel Trilogy 15 years later, I returned to this childhood pariah with trepidation.

Being about eight years old when this aired on childrens TV here in the U.K. in the late 80’s, I just wanted more Star Wars. Instead we were given this, Droids and two life action Ewok movies which I have only just gotten around to watching last month, 20 years later!

There is not too much to say about these really. Ewoks has a lot in common with other 80’s cartoons such as The Smurfs and Furngully etc… and I suppose this is perfectly harmless. But it also offers little else. Yes it is a cartoon as a functional one but a classic, no. A testament to Star Wars? Equally, no.

For those of us old enough to remember these from the time it might satisfy your nostalgia but for anyone else, I would not bother. Nowadays there are plenty of ways to get your Star Wars fix and this probably will not satisfy it.
