Why were Ewoks added to Star Wars

Disney + replenishes Star Wars archives with series and Ewoks films

Disney recently released the program update for April 2021 - we've put together all the details about the new Disney and STAR content here. The announcement that Disney will continue to fill the “Star Wars” archive in April caused a sensation. Unfortunately, this only seems to apply to the US program of the streaming service for the time being. There is nothing in the announcement for Germany - since the announced series and films are currently not available on any other streaming service, “Star Wars” fans can hope. It would be conceivable that Disney would use the “Star Wars” day on May 4, 2021 in order to then replenish the range of German programs.

That's what it's all about: The two Ewoks films "Caravan of the Brave" from 1984 and "Battle for Endor" from 1985, for example, have been announced for the USA classic "Star Wars" trilogy nothing to do - except that the Ewoks play along, especially Warwick Davis as Ewok Wicket Warwick. Both films no longer belong to the official "Star Wars" canon.

Also added is the short film "The Story of the Faithful Wookie," which was part of a Christmas special - and which George Lucas would like to have erased forever. Also new is the series "Star Wars": Clone Wars ", but not the series that ran from 2008 to 2014 and 2020 - it had a 'The' before 'Clone Wars'. What is meant here is the 2D series by Genndy Tartakovsky from 2003 with 25 episodes in 3 seasons, which does not belong to the canon and which was produced in a completely different animation style than the later Clone Wars series. The series takes place between episodes II and III.

So basically only "Star Wars: Droids" and a few YouTube specials are missing in the USA.
