Star Wars: Ewoks

What was it about


The series focuses on the adventures of Wicket W. Warrick and his friends on the forest moon of Endor during the years before the events in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Unlike the films, the characters speak English instead of their native language. The primary recurring villains are King Garneesh,the leader of the Duloks,Umwak and Morag the Tulgah Witch, who had a personal grudge against the tribe's shaman.

STAR WARS: EWOKS Wicket W. Warrick headshot

Wicket W. Warrick

A young Ewok with a headstrong and determined attitude, who often takes the initiative. Wicket wants desperately to be a great warrior, which often gets him into trouble. He is the youngest of three, his older two brothers being Weechee and Willy. Son of Deej and Shodu. Often plays around with some of the other young Ewoks: Kneesaa, Latara and Teebo. Wicket is a dark brown Ewok with an orange hood. He later gets a green hood in season two.

STAR WARS: EWOKS Princess Kneesaa headshot

Princess Kneesaa

The daughter of the Chief of the Ewok tribe, Chirpa. Her mother was killed by a Hanadak while protecting Kneesaa and her lost sister Asha, who was dragged downstream while trying to escape. Kneesaa plays with her friends Wicket, Teebo and Latara, and is often the voice of reason and wisdom on their adventures, but usually ends up in just as much trouble. She often appears smitten with Wicket, although there is no evidence that they ever become romantically involved during the series. Aside from her sister, Kneesaa is an only child. She is a White and Grey Ewok, and wears a pink hood with a blue gem dangling near her forehead (which, we later learn was given to her by Asha, shortly before her disappearance).

STAR WARS: EWOKS Teebo headshot


Wicket's best friend, and is fascinated by tales of sorcery and magic, idolizing the village shaman, Master Logray, and becomes his Apprentice early in the series. He is a bit of a dreamer, and sometimes a little clumsy. Latara is smitten with him in the first season (which Teebo takes no notice of), but during the second season, he is constantly trying to get her attention, but fails miserably. Teebo often lacks discipline, but this is something he learns to master over time from Logray, and eventually becomes a respectful young Ewok. Notably, Teebo has a little sister named Malani, who is head over heels in love with Wicket. Teebo's fur is a bright yellow-brown, and he wears a tan, baggy hood with a feather.

 STAR WARS: EWOKS Latara headshot


Kneesaa's best friend, and dreams of being a great musician with her flute, though her main job appears to be looking after her younger siblings. She even runs away with the Travelling Jinda circus for a time, but learns that hard work is necessary in show business just as much as with taking care of her family. She has a huge crush on Teebo, though he rarely notices it. Her fur is dark grey, and her hat is yellow with a pink feather in it.
