I like the Ewoks. In ROTJ, I thought they were great, and yes, I can believe that a warrior tribe, in their own environment and with some help, can outsmart, trap, and outfight Stormtroopers. Building off of that, Battle for Endor has some good stuff in it. That movie can get downright nasty at times, especially the opening scene, but hey, family films were shockingly dark in the 80s, and I loved it! And building off of that even more, The Ewoks cartoon had its moments, namely the Asha episode and the villain, Morag The Tulgah Witch, who to me, was like a female Mumm-Ra The Everliving. Creepy, and had a great voice (same voice actress that played The Spirit in the Book from that Care Bears movie, for those that care). Also, there was a late episode that had an off screen almost cameo from The Emperor. I don't know if this opinion is "unpopular" as I imagine there are fans that feel the same way I do, but looking back on it, I really wish they never gave lightsabers to Yoda and The Emperor. It seemed cool at the time, but as someone who appreciates what these characters were like in the OT, it sort of betrayed how I saw them. Yoda's line "Wars not make one great" and even the great power both of them showed despite being frail and seemingly weak is what they were all about. As a kid, I kind of had the idea in my head that the stronger you were in The Force, the weaker you were physically because you didn't need to rely on the physical and gave yourself more and more to the spiritual. Yoda doesn't need to do back flips or swing a sword around, and The Emperor is the same way. What would he need a lightsaber for? He can shoot lightning out of his hands! I guess it wouldn't be as much of an issue if it stayed entirely on the PT, but I feel like every piece of Yoda merch out there shows him swinging a saber, which goes against what he's really all about. But maybe I'm just a killjoy...who knows, lol. The Dark Empire Trilogy is not anywhere near one of my favorite pieces of Star Wars media despite its widespread acclaim among the fandom. Sorry. I like the 3D Clone Wars show more than the 2D. The 2D has a better visual style and looks fantastic...but ultimately doesn't give us much beyond that. They are fun little clips showing some cool action. Outside of that, it doesn't expand the characters or the story or tell us anything we don't already know. Anakin is still a whiny punk in Vol 1 and in Vol 2, they do more foreshadowing of Darth Vader, which we already know is coming. They are great for a quick watch and are fun, but the 3D show successfully gave me stories and characters that I cared about, giving the series more of a resonance with me. The best example is the character Asaaj Ventress. in The 2D show, she's girl Darth Maul. That's it. In the 3D show, she has arguably the best character arc in the series. Heck, the 3D even made Darth Maul a more complete and compelling character too (despite the super fan-ficy and implausible explanation for his return). Ahsoka Tano and Cad Bane also turned out to be great additions to the canon and there were episodes that worked amazingly well, ranging from a fun Godzilla homage, to tales of genocide, to an off world, off universe meeting with the spiritual avatars of the Force itself. The 3D show took more risks, told more interesting stories, and was ultimately more satisfying for me....though I will agree that the movie that started the series was utter garbage.
