I’ve never really understood the hatred of Ewoks. I’ve understood the hatred of Jar Jar, AOTC, Hayden Christensen…but not really the Ewoks. Maybe I should rephrase this. I understand why people hate the Ewoks, I just can’t relate. I know that people think they are kind of lame and it’s “disappointing” that they are the ones to help bring down the Empire, but I kind of like it. It shows that the small can do great things as well and that primitive doesn’t always mean less knowledgeable.
The Rebellion would not have been able to defeat the Empire without the Ewoks because the Ewoks understood the lay of planet unlike anyone else. They had the resources to help defeat the Empire. Whereas the Empire was prepared for guns and machinery, the Ewoks were able to surprise them with traps made out of logs and Chewie was able to get inside an AT-ST by swinging on a vine. The way the Rebellion was able to defeat most of the Empire was by working with the planet and it’s resources, not against it. Of course, in the end, they blew up the shield with the bomb, but they would not have gotten there without the Ewoks.
And that’s my shpeal on Ewoks. If I have an Ewok hater followers, I’d love to hear about why you hate the Ewoks so much!
