The Ewok Adventure never crosses your mind when you think of how many Star Wars movie there are so far, but that's okay. It was a made-for-TV movie broadcast in 1984, and then renamed Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure for home video. None of the Star Wars saga principle characters appeared in this children's movie, but it managed to introduce youngsters to the Star Wars universe and its associated merchandising, which was the entire point. Here's some behind-the-scenes trivia about The Ewok Adventure.
10. The Ewok language is based on Tibetan.
It’s hard to imagine the guttural, chittering language being base on anything but it does have a solid base in the Tibetan tongue.
