Short Film of the Day: Return of the Ewok (1982)

Why Watch? Because once you’ve seen an Ewok rocking out to the Mos Eisley Cantina Band, you can never un-see it.

I wish this short film were somewhere in better quality, but someone has clearly taken the time to blend the usable parts together here (along with what, sadly, looks like bootleg footage from a theater showing).

This mockumentary features Warwick Davis on his quest to find meaningful work, and after turning down the idea of playing football for Chelsea, he discovers the universe of Star Wars, where he thinks he’ll fit in nicely.

It features the entire main cast of the films both as themselves and as their characters as well as some behind-the-scenes footage from the set. Funny, sweet, and a blast of nostalgia, this is definitely a cool little ride back through the universe.

What does it cost? Just 25 minutes of your time.
