I was introducing the kids to the new Disney + Plus releases of the Caravan of Courage and its sequel Battle for Endor when the Condor Dragon that captures Cindel in the sequel reminded me of something.
And once I released I could not stop making the connection, the Dragon looks like Watto from The Phantom Menance:
Sure, it’s a stretch and a bit of fun and for sure the movies were indeed fun to watch with the kids.
Caravan of Courage has held a place in my heart since I saw it at the movies in Hastings, New Zealand A LONG time ago… on paper, it’s a great story (indeed George Lucas has the story credit), on-screen it’s a happy mumble-jumble of Ewok fun. The same can be said of Battle for Endor.
The Nightsisters concept eventually made its way into an episode of The Clone Wars.
