Random Trivia For This Title:

  • There were some alterations, and cuts. First, Mace was suppose to have his arm caught in a man-eating flower, but was changed to the creature in the tree that bit his arm. Second, at the end of the movie, Mace sees Izerinah (glowing firefly), says good-bye, and then it snows, and Cindel and the Ewoks dance out in the snow, when in reality it doesn't snow and there as no dancing, just victory music.
  • The Gorax is the only character not to be credited.
  • Though made for TV, actually got a short theatrical run in Germany.
  • The movie took 6 weeks to film, a re-shooting took 1 week, and a dubbing procedure took 2 weeks. So the movie took 9 weeks to complete.
