    Why didn't they do a long scene when one of the rebels die in the beginning of ANH?

    Here's a better question:

    Why did the ewok's death get more screen time than the Emperor's death?

    Gravity.

    I too hate the Ewoks. They were annoying, boring, and ruined the latter half of ROTJ. I hate the impossibility of Ewoks beating stormtroopers with sticks. It's just stupid. The whole Ewok subplot was an insult to anyone with an IQ above room temp. However, I imagine that an Ewok would be mighty tasty if you skinned him, gutted him, and threw him in a big stew! AND I'M VEGETARIAN! :D

    The death of MILLIONS on Alderaan gets a brief mention, while the one dead Ewok gets a camera lingering on him for about 15 seconds.




    The Ewoks were the Jar-Jar of the OT. Thankfully, Lucas was saving all of his high-brow poop-jokes for TPM. The Ewoks didn't RUIN ROTJ for me, but they certainly did hinder my enjoyment of the film. I still find it quite entertaining, but not up to snuff with ANH or ESB.

    Why do some people hate Ewoks? Because some people are evil! Now, if there's any more Ewok bashing my army will throw rotten fruit at the perpetrator.


    Yub yub!

    Ewoks are cute and cuddly and furry.
    But underneath that pretty exterior, is an evil menace to society! Did you look closely at those savage, evil, calculating eyes?

    They were going to eat Han and Luke and even R2D2!

    They ate the brains out of the stormtrooper's helmets before using the helmets as drums!

    Noone suspects the ewok.

    Ewoks are wonderful. We've found 152 uses for them so far - truly nature's Swiss Army Knife.

    Upon looking over that previous post, I realize it was pretty stupid. My apologies, but still be nice to Ewoks.

    How could you guys hate the Ewoks? They were pretty cool when flying and
    throwing rocks against Imperial Stormtroopers with incredible firepower and more
    skill.

    Ohter than that all I liked about the Ewoks were that they were cute and ever
    so cuddly. :) :p

    Some people just don't like cute. Cute isn't so bad, you know.

    Check my sig...sarcasm and the internet go together like a fish and a hammer.

    BTW, when did Ewoks fly? They had like one guy on a hanglider who got shot down. It almost looks as if he gets stomped by the AT-ST's foot if you watch the shot. I have fantasies about that walker crushing and snapping little Ewok bones, then scraping his fur off its foot like a turd.


    I'm a happy-camper! ;)

    Yub Yub,

    I do think the Ewoks are cute, but I just have a hard time believing they can
    defeat Imperial Stormtroopers like they did in Return of the Jedi.

    If I could I would hug a Ewok so much. [face_love] Oh god, can I have a hug someone?

    I have posted this in another topic, but i don´t care.

    I don´t hate Ewoks In the middle of the film, when they were in the village.

    I hate the ewoks at the end of the film because they break the rhythm of the space battle (awesome) and the confront Luke-Vader-The Emperor (One of the best SW moments).

    I must say that Ani (Hate that name) in TPM is a lot sillier (Then what isn't silly in that movie....Oh yeah, Palpatine isn't) than the ewoks ever could be.

    Ewoks are cute! They're furry, cuddly, and they don't try to speak English with a stupid slant to it. Jar Jar, on the other hand.... But also, look, the stormtroopers are so stupid, they couldn't shoot straight at a Death Star if they were ten inches away from it. Is it such a stretch to say that they're dumb enough to lose a war to a bunch of Ewoks too?

    Well I might as well make up an EU novelization where the bartender from ANH is really Boba Fett....but that still doesn't sound as far-fetched as a friggin Ewok flying a spaceship. They're intelligence is, at best, equivalent to that of a monkey.

    The reason "we" hate Ewoks is because most of us are guys here, and we are born with a psychological "law" in our brains that makes us want to kill everything....especially cute things.

    //runs away and starts torturing small animals//

    See? I'm right.

    Ummm...

    I know it's humor, but still...

    That *is* one of the signs looked for in identifying sociopaths.

    Back on topic...

    Why do some people hate the Ewoks?

    Because we can!

    :D
