Intro to the 1985 ABC Sunday Night Movie featuring “Ewoks: The Battle For Endor”


On November 24, 1985, this preemption promo for “MacGyver” ran and was followed by the ABC Sunday Night Movie featuring “Ewoks: The Battle For Endor”. I was on my couch, with giant glass of milk and some generic brand oatmeal cookies ready to relish in some Star wars TV Magic. For me, like many Star Wars fans back then, this was a very big deal. Foolishly I thought the Star Wars TV train would go on forever, but sadly it did not.

    Ewoks: The Battle For Endor was shown in cinemas when i was young. I have seen Caravan of Courage before on VHS and wanted to see the sequel with my older brother. The poster that was displayed at the Theatre entrance was a bit different from the movie (false advertising!)the artwork it showed space battles and a young Male Hero in the middle. I was a bit dissapointed that this character wasn’t in the movie, but i liked the movie anyhow.
    The Poster for the german release is here:
