    I did request the Ewok movies and Droids/Ewoks cartoons, along with the classic Muppet Show. I consider the Mark Hamill episode from 1980 part of the SW canon!

    Why they haven’t released Detours is a bit amazing they have like 30 episodes done and ready

    I did Clone Wars, Droids and Ewoks

    I can’t believe they didn’t find a way to get the Ewok movies, at least, into the platform. Those are gold.

    I'm hoping the reason the Ewok movies and cartoons as well as the Droids series weren't on Disney+ at launch is because they're maybe remastering them for HD before they put them up.

    Also, put these damn shows out on blu ray already. And bring them back into canon. There is absolutely no reason why they shouldn't be canon. As far as I know, they contradict nothing.

    With such significant interest in live action SW (due to the Mandalorian), I'm sure countless fans would like to be introduced to the Ewok movies, likewise there are many hardcore fans that would love to see them in HD and have the opportunity to buy them on BR. Some feel they are a bit too kid oriented, but as Lucas said many times - all of SW was intended to be directed toward kids. It locks us in at a young age, and we take it with us into adulthood, that's why we crave this content from decades ago. The Ewok movies are a significant part of my childhood, and I'd like them to get more recognition as Lucas classics.

    I think it’s more or less confirmed that Bail had the droids until Episode 4 from Episode 3 but I guess you could say they got lost.

    I find it highly believable that they may have.

    just asked for Star Wars: Clone Wars (2D series), Caravan of Courage, Battle for Endor, Droids, Ewoks (TV series), Detours and the Holiday Special (and Toy Story specials Toy Story of Terror and Toy Story that Time Forgot). Hey, you never know!

    I heard recently the the Fromms were mentioned in a canon source? Have any other things from Droids been made canon? Let's start a list.

    I like that Disney+ puts on plenty of short features. The little Pixar stories and old Mickey Mouse shorts

    The Genndy Tartakovsky Clone Wars cartoons would fit right in. I love those things.

    I’ve been waiting to see Bea Arthur’s “Goodnight, But Not Goodbye” in HD for as long as HD has been around. Make it happen, Lucasfilm.

    Detours looked Robot Chickenish in tone, and maybe the powers that be in Disney looked at it and thought "This is... Bad".

    It may be a mercy that we don't see it.

    Robot Chicken’s Star Wars episodes are masterpieces compared to the Detours trailer and clips (despite the same creators being involved). I can’t even pretend to want to see Detours on Disney+, as I pretend with the Holiday Special. It’s somehow the worst of all Star Wars content because of how mediocre it seemed. At least the Holiday Special is a total and complete crash and burn that’s morbidly fascinating to watch. Watching the Detours trailer and clips is like watching excerpts from a Carrot Top standup routine. It’s just lame.

    The Holiday Special was shot on video, though, so an HD release would just be upscaled and probably still look quite low def.

    I wasn't talking about the Holiday Special anyway. If I never see it again, it'll be too soon. Lol

    Ah, I wasn't even aware that trailers for it existed from which to form an opinion. To me it was just a total unknown. haha

    Also trailers are never really indicative of the whole product. I have seen some great trailers that were for bad movies and vice versa

    hopefully after the Willow D+ project! Gotta get in more Ewoks.

    Battle for Endor above Caravan of Courage though, eh? Shocking! That's like the Last Jedi of the Ewoks duology, the most controversial one.

    Seriously, though, I really want to see some sort of new media focused on Ewoks. I love the high-end fantasy feel of Endor and the like.
