Star Wars’ Ewok Jedi Knight Solely Exists in a DnD-Fashion RPG

Ewoks are some of the most memorable creatures in Star Wars, and while some are force sensitive, the only known Jedi Ewok comes from a dubious source.

For all the different creatures, characters, villains and heroes around the world war of stars Universe that has used lightsabers in the bondage of power, both light and dark, there is a blatant omission without the privilege of ever actually doing so: Ewoks. Those furry fiends of Endor never had a Jedi to call themselves – at least not canonically. But that doesn’t mean that power doesn’t flow through them too.

Ewoks are the lovable, bear cub-like creatures who helped the Rebel Alliance during the Battle of Endor Return of the Jedi. They’re arguably some of the most recognizable characters in the franchise, though they haven’t been involved in any major Star Wars production since the second one was destroyed Death star (Aside from two television films, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endorand the cartoon series Ewoks). But these little creatures are not without the ability to feel the power, which makes it strange that this concept has never been fully explored.

Star Wars has force sensitive Ewoks

One of the most important Ewoks in Return of the Jedi was the shaman Logray, who is immediately recognizable by his tall stature, striped fur, bird skull headdress and staff adorned with the bones of a defeated enemy. The older character in Bright Tree Village was force sensitive but never evolved into a full blown Jedi. Logray learned about the power of power when he was enslaved by a witch in his youth. As he got older, he drifted to the Dark Side before finally being banished from the village of Ewok. But one of his strength-sensitive apprentices, the black and white striped Teebo, did not allow himself to be tempted by the dark side. So clear that these popular creatures, designed after Brussels Griffon dogs, can wield both sides of the force, just like many other creatures in the galaxy.

It’s unfortunate that the Ewoks who met Luke Skywalker (and Leia) never had a chance to explore the connection to the power they all shared, on the return of the Jedi or on later big-screen adventures. That being said, the idea of ​​creating a Jedi Ewok was put on paper but never put on screen.

Star Wars: What happened to the Ewok Jedi Knight from Star Wars

In a source book called Geonosis and the Outer Rim Worlds for the DnD-style Star Wars RPG, there is an image of an unnamed Ewok with a blue-tinted lightsaber. It is depicted in the middle of the attack, dressed in the famous Jedi robes, and fights a group of Sanyassan marauders who have kidnapped another Ewok. It takes place at 4 ABY (4 years after the Battle of Yavin when the first Death Star was destroyed). Star Wars RPGs have not been officially declared legends, so it is unclear whether this Jedi Ewok exists in the canon.

What is interesting is that the character appears some time after the Battle of Endor, when the Ewoks fought and defeated the majority of the Sanyassan Marauders. They were a threat to Ewoks for years after landing on the forest moon of Endor and unable to escape. Audiences even got the chance to see Sanyassans in the TV movie Ewoks: The Battle for Endor vs. Ewoks. After that, the ’80s pop culture phenomenon that the Ewoks were was left on Endor and all but forgotten.

A Jedi Ewok could be Star Wars’ next baby, Yoda

Each of the three Star Wars trilogies have spawned their own cozy creatures and characters that appeal to younger audiences. From Porgs to BB-8 there is a wide choice. Given how important the Ewoks were in defeating the Empire and how they can use the Force, there is a new way to create the next Baby Yoda by bringing the Ewoks back, a return that a Jedi or at least a Jedi can do as well should include a Jedi Ewok on his way to becoming one. While fan (and Lucas) favorite Warwick Davis‘Character Wicket wasn’t compulsive, revisiting some of these iconic characters could still come with a return to Bright Tree Village. Hopefully fans will have a chance to spot a Jedi Ewok in the Star Wars universe.
