    I'd love the Ewoks redone with the modern hybrid of costumes + CGI. Lifelike eyes.

    It could be something announced after Rise of Skywalker. When the plot and locations of that movie are finally revealed, then a new Ewok movie/series will seem like a natural thing to do.

    Cindel receives a mysterious message that her brother is not dead, and goes to find him...

    (Just writing nonsense, I know)

    I've been thinking a lot how the ewoks should have a little makeover, mainly in regards to the faces. But yes, I would love more love for the ewoks. Maybe an animated series or even a CG film, like the original animated series (which I adore). I would love to see the duloks again (they're now part of official canon, too).

    Yeah it would be great if they could make the Ewoks look cute and non-threatening, but then look really scary when angry. Just by using facial expressions.

    If they bring the Ewoks back, it should be live action in my opinion, with practical effects, similar to how Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance was made - some CGI, but all the characters and creatures in practical costumes, puppets, etc.

    I've been hoping for this for a long time now. Now with Disney +, and the slew of SW opportunities it offers, I think it's the perfect time for Lucasfilm to visit this idea.

    "The exciting conclusion to the epic Ewok Trilogy, decades in the making...."

    who else are they brutally gonna kill off at the start? Wilford Brimley? (Well, okay, reality has done that too already.) CGI Wilford Brimley?

    It should just be basically a revenge tale with the grown up Cindel and Wicket. Kill Bill. But with Ewoks. Which would be about as bloody.

    Brimley is alive. I'd love a cameo from him in any SW project, to make his character official in the Disney era. That being said, I honestly don't care what they deem canon, because the Ewok movies and those characters will always hold a special place in my heart.

    Canonization of the Ewok movies would be neat but I would still be okay with if they chose not to canonize them (though as I probably have said before I still deem them as canon due to being in my headcanon).

    On another note, with the Disney+ streaming service on the horizon, maybe it's a good time they dug up these two films as well as the Ewoks & Droids shows and released them on there? With how they aim for an extensive library I see no reason why not.

    The only thing that can kill Brimley is assassin droid Die-8-BDZ.

    Noah was the OG cynical hermit! Cindel must've learned from him.

    I always joke that Cindel grew up to be Phasma. The story group could say that she and Noah settled on Passana. She did tell Wicket "I wish we had furry creatures like you where I come from."

    Oops! I meant to type Parnassos instead of Pasana! Parnassos is Phasma's homeworld, whereas Pasana is
    the desert planet in TROS.

    I think the most realistic thing we could get at this point is a series of animated shorts featuring Ewoks... would be a nice callback to the earlier show... we've already got a mini-moment with Knees as previously mentioned. I wish that they would be bold enough to let some low budget risks take place... a four episode Ewoks series, that either recreates the Ewok movies or even just reboots them... for the sake of the dedicated, it would be very cool to introduce the Towanis into canon, but to put a new spin on their characters.

    Love the idea of 'concluding the trilogy' though... casting for grown-up Cindel? My mind first sprang to 90s era Keri Russell (doesn't work, browner than blonder, plus she's both not in the 90s anymore, and also in Ep 9), but I think Chloe Grace Moretz could do it with a little more curl to the hair... if you wanted lots of media attention, fan rage and confusion, maybe get Taylor Swift. CGM is my real choice, but I think I'll spend the rest of the day drafting a script with Taylor Swift as Cindel Towani in mind... :p

    Taylor Swift in SW?! Blasphemy!

    I think Battle for Endor was a nice ending to the Ewok movies, but I'd happily watch a third act to that story, though none of the original actors would likely be involved. I'd like to see Sian Phillips as Charal, along with some other Nightsisters, though she's now in her mid-80s (like Brimley). I think they'd have trouble capturing the simply magic from the originals, but if The Mandalorian is any indication, they could make it visually stunning at the very least.

    if Rey's training in Rise of Skywalker involves her on Endor outrunning a Gorax I'm sending LFL a fruit basket.

    I'm surprised, considering some of the bottom of the barrel offerings that are being put on Disney+ (The Barefoot Executive, anyone?), that the Ewok movies and Droids/Ewoks cartoons are not on it at launch but I'm holding out hope they will be at some point. Just slap a Legends logo on them if need be. I want to pretend it's 1985 again for a few nights.
